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: 修道很簡單,第一、將不好的習慣改掉;第二、捨己為人,不求回報;第三、雖然受人情冷暖,仍然熱情彭拜,濟世求人,如此方為聖賢仙佛的腳步。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivation is very simple: 1st, discard one's bad habits. 2nd, sacrifice oneself for the sake of others without seeking reciprocation. 3rd, despite mistreatment from society, still passionately save people and serve the public. These are the footsteps of Sages, Saints and Buddhas.

    仙佛慈訓: 心美的人看什麼事物都美,凡事得從心境下手,因為心境美,物物皆美。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: A person with a beautiful heart sees beauty in everything. Everything starts from the state of the heart/mind. If the heart/mind is beautiful, then everything will be beautiful.

    仙佛慈訓: 如果想修道就要拿出赤子之心,赤子之心就是純善無惡的心,要去偽存真,當去偽存真時,就可以得到真性。何謂 [真性] ?就是沒有對待,人家對你好,你一樣好,人家對你不好,你也一樣好。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: In order to cultivate Dao, you have to bring out your innocent heart that is totally pure without any evil. You have to remove the false (self) and preserve the truth; when you reach such a state, True Nature is manifested. What is [True Nature]? True Nature has no duality. You are fine regardless how others treat you.

    仙佛慈訓: 思想、欲念就跟白浪一樣,一波接著一波,什麼時候能夠安放它呢?當你知道隨緣的時候,就懂得安放它了。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Thoughts and desires are just like breaking waves, one after another. When can you settle them down? When you know how to let it be, then you will know how to settle those waves.

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 ...
