Awaken to the Buddha Within

To Realize One’s True Nature Is To Realize the Buddha Within

Welcome to Happy Buddha Precious Temple

Our temple is one of many around the world dedicated to teaching people the way of Dao (Tao). The way of Dao is the path to nirvana or ultimate enlightenment such as that achieved by Buddha over two thousand five hundred years ago. Dao is not just a concept, philosophy, or practice, but all of these. It is the underlying principle of nature itself and of all the major world religious practices. Dao is also the underlying principle of life itself. Dao cannot be understood simply as knowledge. Dao must be experienced and realized (practiced). This is because the wellspring of Dao comes from within.

We have weekly study sessions to learn from the teachings of Buddha and other sages and saints. We also learn to practice what we have learned. Eventually, it is the daily practice that gives us the experience, inspiration, faith and wisdom to truly comprehend and embrace Dao.

The Truth or Dao that we seek is not outside, but within each of us. In order to understand this, you are invited to read the various topics of Understanding Dao.

Words of Wisdom

    仙佛慈訓: 天上果位人間定,但若是為果位而有所打算,就不是果位了。因為心有所動就不是道了。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Heavenly positions are determined in this earthly world. However, if you are striving for the reward of a heavenly position, then it is no longer a heavenly position. Because it is not (in harmony with) Dao when the heart is stirred.

    仙佛慈訓: 在最恰當的時候做最恰當的事,就是修道。因為我們不可能沒事找事做,總是遇事、見事、辦事。人世間的事情辦好,就是天上事情辦好。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Dao cultivation is to find the most appropriate time to do the most appropriate thing, because it is not possible to find things to do when there is in fact, nothing to do. As we encounter a situation, we face it and deal with it. To do things well in this world is also to take good care of the holy matters.

    仙佛慈訓: 來到這人間會被什麼所引誘?一些氣的流行。所以要小心每一個動念,每一個動念都會影響你們很多,有不好的動念就會產生不好的結果,所以更要小心。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Coming to this mundane world, what are we lured by? Currents of qi/energy. We must be careful of each and every thought, because they will influence us enormously. Bad thoughts will lead to bad results. So be very careful.

Dao in Daily Life

  • Live in the Moment (part 2) Previously, we talked about living in the moment, and how we tend to put things off until later what we can actually do today. Perhaps it is human nature to be selective about these things. We tend to want instant gratification, yet when it comes to doing things for others we tend to put it off for later. So on the one hand, we prefer to live in the moment of instant gratification, and on the other hand we procrastinate into the future what we probably should be doing today. Therefore, it's reasonable to say that we tend to live in the moment for ourselves and not for others. In other words, we tend to be selfish.So given ...

  • Live in the Moment We hear it said that we should live in the moment. What does that mean? It is the same as the old adage, "seize the day." Sometimes we say, "I'll get around to doing it tomorrow." Perhaps 99% of the time, this may turn out to be fine, but for that 1% of the time, tomorrow may never come. For all the planning that we do, both our karma and Nature can ruin our plans. Sometimes these setbacks are only temporary, and we can adjust our plans accordingly. But many times, these setbacks are permanent and no matter what, we will never be able to achieve what we had planned to do. Here is a short video that very ...

  • Give and Take There was a story about two souls ready to be born into the world as humans. God told them to choose what kind of person they wanted to be: either a person with palms facing upward or a person with palms facing downward. The first soul decided that it would be better to be a person with palms facing upward, because that meant receiving things (fortune, etc.) without putting in much effort. The second soul decided that it would be better to be a person with palms facing downward, because that meant always giving to others. So after they were born, the first person became a beggar who was constantly begging for food, while the second person became a wealthy ...
