Er You Temple

“Fo Guang Shan Er You Temple.”  The meaning (translated from Chinese) is “You have a temple”, he explains “There are not many Buddhist temples in Melbourne. It seems significant that with Er You Temple, you have a temple, and also that ‘I’ have a temple. The importance of Er You Temple to Melbournians is significant, it can become a place for Melbournians to recharge spiritually.


FO GUANG SHAN

Fo Guang Shan (literally meaning the Buddha’s Light Mountain) is one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the world operating over 300 branch temples and several education institutions. In Australia and New Zealand, there are 12 Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temples, 10 of which are in Australia, and 3 in the state of Victoria. Fo Guang Shan also operates Nan Tien Institute, Australia’s first government accredited tertiary institution grounded in Buddhist values and wisdom.


FOUNDER

Venerable Master Hsing Yun was born in Chiangsu Province, China in 1927 and entered a monastery near Nanjing at age twelve. He is the founder of the Fo Guang Shan International Buddhist Order, which is headquartered in Taiwan and supports temples worldwide. The Order emphasizes education and service and maintains public universities, Buddhist colleges, libraries, publishing houses, Buddhist art galleries and tearooms, free mobile medical clinics, children’s home, retirement home, high school, and television station. The Order’s lay service organization, Buddha’s Light International Association, also has active chapters worldwide.


Humanistic Buddhism

Humanistic Buddhism teaches that one can live fully in this human world and practice Buddhism at the same time. The two endeavors are not separate. They support each other perfectly by enabling one to cultivate the wisdom that clearly understands the true nature of reality. Humanistic Buddhism encourages one to integrate the Buddha’s teachings of tolerance, loving-kindness, compassion, joyfulness, and equanimity into our lives for the benefit of all beings.
