Venerable Master Hsing Yun and His Lifetime Contributions: A Forum on Buddhism in the Contemporary World
Venerable Master Hsing Yun is widely-regarded as one of the forefront leaders in the modern reformation of Chinese Buddhism. For his contributions to the Humanistic Buddhism movement and the dissemination of Chinese culture. As part of his efforts in spreading the Humanistic Buddhism philosophy and his teachings across the globe, he has also written more than 350 internationally-revered books. His work has been translated into over twenty languages, including English, German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Portuguese, a testament to the wide affirmation of his wisdom.
To date, over 170 chapters of Fo Guang Shan have been established in five continents, making it the largest Chinese organisation around the world.
This is a cross-party, cross-cultural event, aiming to promote the Buddhist principles of kindness, compassion, friendship and peace to all. These humanistic principles enhance the sense of community in all constituencies across the UK.
Your presence at this event could be a symbolic gesture of support for the central virtues of Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s teachings:
Do Good Deeds, Speak Good Words & Think Good Thoughts (做好事、說好話、存好心)
In addition, London Fo Guang Shan is delighted to collaberate with the House of Parliament to deliver a workshop on “People, Power and Parliament – An Introduction to Your UK Parliament”.
