Eight Schools of Thought ~ A Dharma Teaching Series by Venerable Fa Guang @ Poh Ming Tse
6 June ~ 27 June Every Wednesday.
A brief overview of the 8 schools of thought based on the reading of “The Essentials Of The Eight Traditions" by Gyonen
The Essentials of the Eight Schools gives a concise account of the history and doctrines of the eight principal Buddhist schools in existence in Japan at the time of the author, i.e. the six schools which were introduced to Japan during the Nara Period and the two schools introduced by Saicho and Kukai during the Heian Period. This work may thus be described as an introduction to Japanese Buddhism.
The eight traditions / schools
You will bring back with you some Japanese languages and terms at the end of the class.

Introduction on Bodhisattva Precepts
Monastics observed the basic moral code in Buddhism, but in the Mahayana tradition, monks would additionally observe the Bodhisattva Precepts on top of the existing code. In Japanese Buddhism, new
monastic community was set up using the Bodhisattva Precepts exclusively.

On 15th June 2011, Master Long Gen passed away. Known for his life long work and effort in Buddhist education, he has left us and on 24th June 2011, a cremation ceremony and puja service was conducted in his honour. At 1145am, when the puja service was about to begin, a halo of light appeared around the sun. Below is a newspaper cutting that captured what was seen as an auspicious aura, an auspicious ring of light in the sky, seen from Leng Foong Prajna Temple.
For many, such a sight is indeed inspiring!
Being inspired, let us go learn about the teachings shared by late Master Long Gen, so that we may learn the Buddha’s teaching through his sharing.
nThrough this learning, let us practise. Through the practice, let us realise the way things truly are. Through such realisation, let us attain to Nibbana!
In this way, let us we honour the late Master Long Gen.
Newspaper scan by Yeo Kia Liang … I decided to crop out the other unrelated news and post the sharing I gave yesternight at Buddhist Union. Suki hontu! ^_^
