Preparation in chinese new year 2019
Year Of The Pig

2019 is the Year of the Pig according to Chinese zodiac. This is a Year of Earth Pig, starting from Feb. 5, 2019 (Chinese New Year) and lasting to Jan. 24, 2020.

Pig is the twelfth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043...

Pig is not thought to be a smart animal in China. It likes sleeping and eating and becomes fat. Thus it usually features laziness and clumsiness. On the positive side, it behaves itself, has no plan to harm others, and can bring affluence to people. Consequently, it has been regarded as wealth.

Wu Xing (The Five Elements): Shui (Water)

Today many countries around the world celebrate Father's Day. Did you know that the Buddha was also a father? What was the Buddha like as a father? He was a father-like figure to all beings, but was strict with his own son. Find out in this story below.

Rahula, the first sramanera to join the Sangha, was intelligent but liked to tell lies. After the Buddha found out, he ordered Rahula to bring him some water. The Buddha then washed his feet, pointed at the water, and asked, “Is the water in this basin fit for drinking?” Rahula responded, “This water is dirty and thus undrinkable.” The Buddha said, “You are like this water. Originally pure, but because of your dishonesty, you have become just like dirty water.” After Rahula emptied the basin, the Buddha asked, “Can this basin be used to hold food?” Rahula responded, “No, this basin is not clean and thus not fit to hold food.” The Buddha said, “You are like this basin. Although you have become a monk, you do not purify your body, speech, and mind, so how can the Dharma enter your heart?”

After this, Rahula abandoned his mischievous habits, strictly upheld the precepts, and practice diligently.

#ChanArt & Stories - Drying Mushrooms in the Sun

In a certain Buddhist monastery, there was a Chan master, more than eighty years old. One day, he was hunched over under the bright sun, drying mushrooms. When Chan Master Daoyuan, abbot of the monastery, saw the old master he said to him, “Senior elder, you are getting on in years now. There’s no need for you to do such hard and strenuous work anymore. I can get other people to do this work for you.”

Without hesitation, the old master replied, “Other people are not me!”

Master Daoyuan went on trying to persuade him, “That’s true enough. But if you want to work, there’s still no need to do so when the sun is out!”

The old master asked, “If I don’t dry the mushrooms under the bright sun, then you’re saying I should wait for a cloudy or rainy day to do the drying?”

The old Chan master’s simple yet powerful answer fully demonstrates how Chan is a part of life. Even the act of drying mushrooms is a part of the pure Chan mind. Menial tasks are not to be done by others, nor are they meant to be put off until tomorrow. They are for the present moment. Chan is getting to know one’s true self through daily chores, and seeing first-hand how Chan points directly to the mind.

Buddha’s Tooth Relic
In 543 BCE, after the Buddha passed into final nirvana and was cremated, it is recorded that only three Buddha's tooth relics remained in the world. One is in Sri Lanka, and one is in Mainland China, but the third tooth drifted about on a long, winding journey. In February of 1998, Venerable Master Hsing Yun went to India to officiate at the Triple Platform Full Ordination Ceremony. Kunga Dorje Rinpoche was moved by Venerable Master Hsing Yun's efforts to promote international Buddhist dialog, and, along with a document jointly signed by twelve other rinpoches, he presented the Buddha's tooth relic to Venerable Master Hsing Yun. In April of the same year, the relic was brought to Taiwan.

“Everyone wishes for an abundant store of blessings. After all, wealth is not permanent, and sometimes an excess of wealth and material prosperity can actually burden us with heavy responsibilities. In contrast, our store of blessings are always with us and are always a source of immense happiness.”

#89 - A Generous Donation 銀貨兩訖
Storyteller: Venerable Miao Guang 妙光法師

What mindset should we have when we give? A devotee heard about the temple needing donations for construction, and decided to donate a huge sum of money. How did the Chan Master respond?
我們該抱著什麼樣的心佈施呢?有位信徒發心捐錢,但對禪師的反應感到不解。

Repentance...

#87 - The Human-Faced Ulcer 人面瘡的故事
Storyteller: Venerable Miao Guang 妙光法師

Why is repentance important? An inexplicable human-faced ulcer began growing on a Chan Master's knees. Baffled by the cause of it, the Chan Master went to seek help.
懺悔為什麼重要?有位禪師的膝蓋上不明的長了一個「人面瘡」,於是他便尋找解救的辦法。

General information

Best known as BLIA, Venerable Master Hsing Yun established this organization in 1992. The headquarters is currently located in Fo Guang Shan Monastary, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. BLIA is an organization in which Humanistic Buddhism is practiced in our everyday life. It is essentially an embodiment of cultivation that entails the participation in Dharma services and activities that are beneficial to society at large. Through the eightfold path, each Buddhist learns how to end suffering in which one is experiencing. In addition, BLIA also maintains friendly ties other religion groups. Chu Un Temple is one of the temple hosting BLIA in Cebu City, other chapters are also stationed around the Philippines. They are located in Manila, Bacolod, and Ilo-ilo. Chu Un Temple was constructed in 1988 and built by the couple, Mr. Paterno Luym and his wife, Rosita Luym. Although Mr. Paterno Luym is a Catholic, the couple decided to build the temple in memory of his beloved mother, who was a devout Buddhist. Through their good friend Mrs. Xia Su Ying, who resides in Taiwan, Mr.and Mrs. Paterno Luym went to Taiwan Fo Guang Shan in Kaoshiung to seek assistance from the Venerable Master Hsing Yun. In March of 1989, Venerables Yung Guang and Tze Rung came to the temple. Venerable Tze Rung was the first Abbot of the temple. In September 1, 1990, the late Head Abbot Venerable Hsin Peng led a group of disciples to Chu Un Temple to celebrate the completion of the temple and perform the purification ceremony of the Guan Yin Shrine. In November of 1992, in response to the demands made by the devotees, second Abbot Venerable Yung Guang went to Manila. In 1996, Abbot Venerable Yung Guang and Venerable Yung Ko and with the help of the devotees who began to raise funds to build the 3-story building. In January of 1998, former Head Abbot, Most Venerable Hsing Ting, came to conduct the groundbreaking ceremony. And on May 29, 2002, he came again to conduct the celebration of the completion of the building. The building is named Di Zhang Shrine. This made a new milestone in the history of Buddhism in the Philippines and for the Buddhist devotees in the Chinese community. There are three (3) buildings erected on the hilltop of a 1.8 hectare land area. These are the Guan Yin Shrine, the Bamboo Garden Dining Hall and the Di Zhang Shrine. At the back of the Guan Yin Shrine are the Bamboo Garden Dining Hall and a fish pond where carp fish happily swims around. There is a small farm at the back of the Dining Hall where coconuts, bananas, vegetables and different kinds of native Philippine fruit trees are planted. Guan Yin Shrine or the Great Mercy Hall is dedicated to Avalokitesvara Budhisattva (Guan Yin Pusa), who reaches out for the salvation of the human beings with great compassion. In front of the new building is a playground for children to play. The ground floor of the new building is dedicated to Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, who is also known as the Di Zhang Wang Pusa, who made the great vow to come for the salvation of suffering beings in Hell. The second floor has Amithaba Buddha to carry out the prayer services for the dead. It is dedicated to honor the deceased. The third floor is divided into a tea house, conference room, and a Remembrance Hall for the deceased Elders of the Luym family. Chu Un Temple is located at 246-3 V. Rama Avenue, Cebu City. It is approximately 45 minutes to and from the Cebu Mactan International Airport, 15 minutes to downtown area and only 20 minutes to the major big shopping malls.
