A celebration for the Five World Buddhas Temple’s second anniversary was held by Guang Huan Mi Zong on June 28, 2012. The Buddhist temple is home to five golden Buddha statues and many Buddha tapestries. Hundreds of people coming from across the country and from around the world have attended the Health Dharma classes held in this temple in the past two years.
Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi delivered a speech to mark the special occasion, “This temple represents peace, health and harmony for all, and serves as a place to let people understand Buddhist teachings and Chinese culture.”
Following the celebration was a 3-day Health Dharma class taught by the Holy Master. Through learning the unique meditation techniques of the Health Dharma, many students found their energy level had dramatically increased, and attained a lot of positive insights into their lives.
Holy Ziguang Shang Shi encouraged all the students to do more good deeds, by sharing with others how they are benefited from practicing Guang Huan Mi Zong Health Dharma, they can gain merits and help to better the world.
Roger Sohn from San Francisco, brought 10 family members and friends to make the trip across the country for the Dharma class. He said, “The teaching that we receive, is really precious and rare, and you can only get it directly from the Master here. If a person is able to somehow get the opportunity and actually make it down here, what you get out of it is really amazing. It’s really incredible.”
“To me it was life-changing.” He was very happy that his families and friend were able to experience positive change in their lives.
Roger’s wife Tiffany wrote in her letter to Holy Ziguang Shang Shi, “Thank you so much for your teachings these past few days. I enjoyed every minute of it and will cherish it forever. I am so grateful to see such a big change in my husband, Roger.”
Tiffany’s sister Theresa wrote, “I highly respect you for what you’re trying to accomplish in this world. Not many people would/has the strength and conviction to do what you’re doing.”
Amanda Elsheshai, Tiffany’s good friend, who did not sleep well in the past, slept very well during the 3-day class. She wrote in her thank you letter, “I am searching for the additional strength, focus, and validation; I believe learning from you and receiving the light from you will help me get through it.”
Crystal felt her eye problem was relieved and became more positive; several other young Chinese Americans also wrote down their gratitude for becoming more focused, relaxed, and energetic in their thank you cards to the Holy Master.
Everyone completed the class with great joy and gratitude, and the hope of coming back for the advanced class in September.
