Monks of Jogyesa - The history of Jogyesa, the central monastery of the teaching of Buddhism in Korea, is as long as the history of Korean Buddhism. Through its traditional tenets along with the constant practice of the Buddha’s teachings, the ordained Sangha of monks and nuns have been able to continue its work of helping to save all beings from suffering.
