Spiritual Director: Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi

Notes and Events:

Guang Huan Mi Zong Buddhism, founded by Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi, contains the essence of all Buddhist teachings. Its Great Perfection Dharma is the direct lineage of the teaching of Shakyamuni Buddha and is the supreme level of the nine vehicles of Buddhism. With over 2,500 years’ history of exploration and development, it was transmitted through the centuries from master to disciple. Holy Master has simplified the different methods of spiritual practice perfected by the Buddha into one system of cultivation with nine levels culminating in enlightenment, and liberation from suffering.

Guang Huan Mi Zong Health Dharma focuses on establishing increasing levels of mental, physical, and spiritual health, energy, and vitality.

The higher levels of practice involve attaining increasingly deeper levels of mastery in order to benefit others and live a life rooted in the personal realization of Supreme Truth. Holy Ziguang Shang Shi teaches different cultivation methods according to different affinities, root capacity and karma.

Five World Buddhas Temple

The majestic Five World Buddhas Temple was established by Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi in the year 2010 in the city of Amsterdam, New York.

The Temple serves today as the site for Guang Huan Mi Zong Health Dharma classes that have made the timeless message of the Buddha and the profound healing effects of his Secret Dharma openly available for the first time in the West, and the venue for many important Buddhist ceremonies which lead to cultural exchanges between the East and West.
