Ally Blatz, Won Eun Soo

Every week, I look forward to attending Sunday service and interacting with the wonderful members of our Dharma community. As a college student, I feel that I am always worrying about deadlines and stressing out about the direction of my future. However, when I come to the temple, all of my concerns suddenly disappear. I have been able to grow in the practice of sitting meditation, which has had a profound and resounding impact on both my emotional and physical health. Through Won Buddhism, I am slowly discovering the path towards spiritual fulfillment. With the help of our Dharma community, I am learning how to cultivate compassion and wisdom. For this, I am forever grateful. – Ally Blatz, Won Eun Soo


Spencer Morris, Won Seong

Won Buddhism has been a wonderful part of my life for a number of years now. As I have gone through different experiences and stages of my life, the Won Buddhism sanga has been with me at every step. The support that has been given to me by the ministers and members has been truly priceless. From the weekly dharma talks to the roundtable discussions afterward—it all somehow addresses something that is going on in my life at the time! I know that I am not the only person who feels this way about the temple. People who are visiting for only the first time remark about how friendly and welcoming the community is. As we head into uncertainty, it’s comforting to know that Won Buddhism will continue to be a guiding light in the new year. – Spencer Morris, Won Seong


Charlene Manuel, Won Bup Shim

I came across Won Buddhism at a time in my life when I was seeking to cultivate my spirituality. I attended a service at the Won Buddhist Manhattan Temple and the rest is history. The teachings of Master Sotesan, the spiritual guidance of Reverend Doyeon and the prayers of Living Dharma offer a structure in how I hope to conduct my life. And I am also beyond grateful for the compassionate community — my dharma family — who provide so much support and joy. The peaceful reflections I cultivate from my practice are carried and shared with others in my daily interactions. – Charlene Manuel, Won Bup Shim
