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: 修道不是在佛堂修道,不是在人前修道,而是在你獨處的時候,在你面對每一件事情的時候,那才是修道。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivation is not done just in the temple nor done for people to see. More importantly, it is done when you are alone by yourself, and when you encounter matters or situations. That is cultivation.

    仙佛慈訓: 老天降道不是教你們畫符念咒,也不是教你們一些奇奇怪怪的事情,而是直接了當就跟你們說每個人都是佛祖。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Heaven (God) descended Dao not to teach people of conjurations, theurgies, or strange and mystifying things, but to tell you directly that everyone is a Buddha.

    仙佛慈訓: 上天堂、下地獄就在一念之間,所以君子要慎獨,要時時留心自己的思想,因為思想會成為語言,語言會成為行動,行動會成為習慣,習慣會成為性格,性格會成為命運,所以思想很重要。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Being in heaven or in hell is within the span of a thought; therefore, a noble person should always be careful of his thoughts, especially when he is alone. Thoughts lead to words, words turn into actions, actions become habits, habits build character, and character becomes fate. Therefore, thoughts are vitally important.

    仙佛慈訓: 人往往在逆境中才能成長,往往是在歷練中才能茁莊。你有幾分能力,老天就給你幾分去辦,所以不要輕視自己。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: People usually grow in adversity, and often become stronger when undergoing arduous experiences. Heaven gives you assignments according to your ability; thus, do not belittle yourself.

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 ...
