In a small room at a Buddhist temple in South Korea, a monk sits in a chair, his head bowed, reciting a poem in a Buddhist script.
The monk is one of hundreds of thousands of South Koreans who are Buddhists.
His name is Chia-chun Jung, and he’s one of more than 200,000 monks who have become monks in South Korean Buddhism, according to the Ministry of Religious Affairs.
The idea of becoming a monk has existed in Buddhism for hundreds of years, and it’s one that is still very much alive.
It’s not just a tradition in South East Asia, but one that has permeated throughout Asia and has influenced many religions, said Chia, who works in the Buddhist tradition in Seoul.
For centuries, Buddhists have been the backbone of many cultures.
Many Chinese and Indian Buddhists are monks, while many Buddhists in Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam are monks.
The Buddhist scriptures have been translated into hundreds of languages.
They are used to teach the doctrines of Buddhism in different cultures and different religions, Chia said.
The word Buddhist means “noble” or “nobled” in Chinese.
Buddhism is one way to refer to a spiritual practice.
The practice is based on the teachings of Buddha.
It’s called a monastic life, which is what Buddhism is.
It means to dedicate your life to the service of others and to the pursuit of happiness.
Buddhist monks, for example, practice meditation, and they also worship the Buddha.
It was Buddhism’s teachings that inspired Buddhism, and the idea of being a monk in Buddhism, Chian Jung said.
