Hello Again Everyone!!

With the blog just turning two, and with over 100,000 visitors during that time, I just wanted to thank those visitors that continue to support my blog. Hopefully, it’s a helpful source to those that want to explore Korean Buddhism, as well as its beautiful temples and hermitages.

THANK YOU!!

The Blog’s One Year Birthday

Hello Again Everyone,

Well, it’s now official, the blog just passed the one year mark. And with it, there has been a lot of good that’s come from producing this blog. I’ve met a lot of interesting people along the way, and been able to contribute material outside the parameters of the blog.

I’ve been able to write for The Korea Times:

Article #1, Article #2, Article #3, Article #4, Article #5.

I’m a regular contributor on the community of foreign bloggers at Nanoomi.net 

My blog postings are posted at the weekly online magazine, Seoul Weekly, by Robert Koehler.

I received honourable mention on the Pusanweb summer photo contest.

An article of mine appeared on the Buddhist Channel website.

And just recently I was included as a contributing member to, The Korea Blog, which acts as the official blogspot for the Korean government.

Here’s to hoping that the success and support of the blog will continue for many years to come.

Thanks everyone!

Hello Everyone!!

Recently, on this blog, I was contacted by someone from The Korea Times national newspaper.  They asked me to contribute five articles to their newspaper.  This is a huge accomplishment for me.

You can check out my article at The Korea Times, on one of my favourite temples here in Korea, Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, here:

My second article is now up, as well, at The Korea Times. This article is about the American Buddhist monk that lives in Korea: Chong Go Sunim.

Again, thank you everyone for your continued support.  In the future I hope to contribute several more articles to The Korea Times.
