Snapshot Sunday: Prayer at the Haeinsa Temple

Prayer at Haeinsa
Praying to the Buddha of Emptiness – Haeinsa Temple, South Korea

At Haeinsa Temple near Daegu, we saw this monk praying to the Vairocana Buddha – the embodiment of the Buddhist concept of emptiness. In addition to a monastery, Haeinsa is also home to the Tripitaka Koreana, a collection of over 80,000 woodblocks of Buddhist scripture that was completed in 1251 CE.
