e) The Year
Each year is naturally divided into four seasons. Temple life, ever as
close to nature as possible, follows the seasons and Korea's climate has a
sharp distinction between the very cold, dry winter, the balmy spring and
autumn and the humid, sweltering summer. Thus the summer and winter are
reserved for meditation and retreat, and the spring and autumn for
wandering, seeking instruction and doing service.
The ordained members of the Sangha have their own distinctive robes. Based
on traditional Korean clothes, the season are well accommodated.
