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

  • 2019-01-13 Words of Wisdom
    仙佛慈訓: [嗔],遇到不如意的事,就忿怒、不高興、生氣,要知道,人生不如意十之八九,那能事事順心如意,如果事事順心如意,就不用做人了,就可做仙佛。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: [Anger]: when encountering things that do not go your way, you become riled, unhappy and angry. You have to know, in life, eight or nine out of ten cases don't go your way, and it's impossible to be satisfied with everything. If things always turn out as you have wished, then you don't need to be a human anymore, you can become a Saint or Buddha.

    仙佛慈訓: 學道要先從心做起,所謂相由心生,佛性顯現時,不會有好壞善惡,更不會被外鏡所影響。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Learning Dao should begin with the heart. It is said that a person's appearance is a reflection of his heart. When the Buddha Nature emerges, good, bad, kind, or evil all become irrelevant; furthermore, the influence of the environment becomes nil.

    仙佛慈訓: 只要至誠就能感天、就能靈,存有至誠之心沒有分別,自然就是道,自然就能靈,就能產生一片公心、一片真、一片誠、一片恆。

    Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Heaven will be touched when you are at your sincerest, and things will be efficacious. Harbor a sincerest heart without differentiation. Being natural is Dao. Be natural, and things will work out (efficacious). Being natural yields a heart that is impartial, true, sincere, and persevering.

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 ...
