Fo Guang Shan

Fo Guang Shan Monastery Taiwan

Since its establishment in 1967, the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist order has evolved from a small monastery atop a mountain of bamboo forest to become the largest Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. It has also become an internationally recognised site of pilgrimage under the guidance of Venerable Master Hsing Yun. Master Hsing Yun has inspired the selfless devotion of over 1.000 ordained disciples as well gained the ardent support of many lay devotees to assist him in bringing faith, happiness, hope and convenience to others.
