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.

    仙佛慈訓: 功在暗處得,莫在表面圖虛名。守住自己的愿,多做少說;注意自己的身體,莫要逞強,珍惜自己的生命。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Merits are earned without being recognized. Do not seek for superficial reputations. Hold fast to your vows, do more and talk less. Take care of your health, do not do things beyond your capabilities, and cherish your life.

    仙佛慈訓: 修道就是要學習如何捨掉不好的行為,捨掉貪嗔癡三毒,名利、煩惱及不愉快的事,以平等心、知足心、感恩心來面對眾生、面對自己。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivation is learning how to let go of bad behaviors. Discard the three poisons (greed, anger, and ignorance) as well as fame, wealth, vexations and unhappiness. Face yourself and sentient beings with a heart of equality, contentment and gratefulness.

    仙佛慈訓: 當真正了解自己的時候,唯一不會欺騙你的是你自己,還有仙佛常伴著你,如果心有領會的話,應該會感覺到,常常有一股力量支持著,那是自性潛在能力的發揮,那是真正跟上天靈犀相通。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: When you truly understand yourself, the only person who will not deceive you is yourself. Plus, Saints and Buddhas are always by your side. If you comprehend this, you should feel a constant strength supporting you; that's the potential power of your true nature brought into full play. That's the true communion with God.

    仙佛慈訓: 如何才能明心見性?只要身體力行去修即可。但如果一直求明心見性,反會被這四個字限制,無法超脫。因此,明心見性要行無所住而生其心。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: How to achieve enlightenment? Just cultivate diligently of what you learn and preach. If you perversely seek after "enlightenment", you will be attached to this term, confined by it and unable to transcend oneself. Thus, to be enlightened, one must practice to let go of all attachments, then one's true heart will manifest.

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 ...
