The Buddha’s Light Philosophy
The Buddha’s Light Philosophy, written in Chinese by Venerable Master Hsing Yun and translated by Fo Guang Shan International Translation Center (FGSITC) will be of interest to anyone who wants to learn about Fo Guang Shan, the Buddha’s Light International Association (BLIA), and their relevance to today’s society.
Venerable Master Hsing Yun, the founder of the BLIA, advocates modernization, a focus on the world in which we live, and the systematization of Buddhism. The present work examines these ideals as they specifically apply to the management and accomplishments of the BLIA and the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Order. The Buddha’s Light Philosophy describes the foundation of the BLIA, its purpose, its mission, concepts, and guidelines. Not only does it serve the people and spread a joy among them, it also encourages us to model our practice and behaviors on the four great bodhisattvas and abide by the teachings of Humanistic Buddhism.
First published in 2002, this new edition of the Buddha’s Light Philosophy contains up-to-date information on the activities of the BLIA over the last decade, and updates much of the terminology to reflect the changes in Fo Guang Shan and in the wider Buddhist community.
The BLIA is an organization that belongs to all the Buddhists in the world, and hope we can apply the teachings of the BLIA and the Buddha’s Light Philosophy to help us, our community, and the entire world.
