SEOUL, May 16 (Yonhap) -- Some 3,000 Buddhists who crowded a temple in northern Seoul for a music concert to mark Buddha's birthday on Sunday stood up and clapped when the country's Roman Catholic leader showed up to attend the concert.



It was not certain until that afternoon whether Stephen Cardinal Kim Sou-hwan would appear as pledged due to poor health.



Kim's participation added meaning to the music concert held by Gilsang Temple on the evening of Buddha's birthday to raise funds for the poor.



With the theme "Love and Unity," this year's show included performances by "popera" singer Lim Hyung-joo, pop duo Haebaragi and theater actress Yoon Suk-hwa.



The temple decided to donate a portion of raised fund to an orphanage operated by a local Catholic church in its neighborhood.



The 83-year-old cardinal conveyed his thanks to the temple for helping the orphanage. He then sat next to Ven. Beopjeong, the founder of the temple and head of a civic group, and Ven. Park Chung-soo of Won Buddhism to watch the concert. The audience also included some 20 Catholic nuns.



"Thank you for organizing this event to help a Catholic organization and also for inviting me," the cardinal said when asked to deliver a greeting speech during the show.



"I hope God's blessing and the benefits of Buddha are always with you," he said.



Founded in 1997 in an uptown residential area of the capital, Gilsang Temple has exchanged celebratory delegations with the orphanage on Buddha's birthday, Christmas and Easter Day every year to enhance religious tolerance and understanding in Korean society.

I like Korea being a multi-religious country.
