Brief Introduction of Fo Guang Shan (Singapore)
Fo Guang Shan (Singapore) strives to realise the vision of her founder, Venerable Master Hsing Yun. His vision of building a harmonious and compassionate human society as implied in the concept of "Pureland" in Buddhism is by putting wisdom and compassion into action via the promotion of education, Buddhist culture, social welfare services and social togetherness.
The development of Buddhism is dependent on the progress of Buddhist education, art and culture. Since 1997, Fo Guang Shan (Singapore) has been promoting Buddhist education among the younger generation. There are Dharma classes that suit the needs of fellow Buddhists from all ages such as the Children's Dharma classes; City Buddhist college classes and Television Buddhist college classes that aim to bring Buddhist teachings that are relevant to our modern lifestyle; Study groups where members discuss and share their experiences in Dharma practices etc. Prominent speakers, well known for their professional knowledge and humour are invited to give Mandarin and English talks regularly for the benefits of our members and the public. In our premise, there is a teahouse with a gallery of Buddhist artifacts for members and friends to share moments together.
In our life journey, there are times where we are lost and need support from our Dharma friends. There are times where our Dharma friends need our support. Let Fo Guang Shan (Singapore) be the place for us to share and realise our goals and hopes together.
