    Food that helps one attain the way: Mushrooms and green peppers

    ANN/KOREA HERALD – To go forth and become a monk is not a trivial matter. Its purpose is neither to seek bodily comfort nor to be warmly clothed and fully fed, nor to seek honour and wealth.

    Rather, its purpose is to escape the cycle of birth and death, to sever one’s affections, and to save sentient beings by showing them the way out of the threefold world.

    Baru gongyang, the monastic communal meal, is a Buddhist practice that promotes solemnity and pensiveness.

    Each one of us is different in the way we have lived, as well as our appearance and surrounding environment. Therefore, even in preparing a vegetable dish, our own ideas and habits are added to it, while generous consideration for others and the community are lacking.
