什么是内观禅?

内观禅(毗婆舍那)是佛陀教法的核心。这是一种培养正知正念,以超越心理束缚,达致究竟寂静的内在培训。这种心灵培训并无宗教信仰成分,纯粹是一种科学性的内心探索。

What is Vipassana Meditation?

Vipassana (Insight) Meditation is the heart of the Buddha’s Teachings –– a practice of awareness that leads us beyond the confines of our ordinary psychology to the freedom and clarity of our essential nature. There is no element of religion in this practice. It is a scientific investigation and examination of ourselves.

Notes and Events:

The seedling of Tzu Chi compassionate mission, with its origin from Taiwan quietly sprouted in Singapore in year 1987. In the early days of Tzu Chi Singapore, we had Sister Liu Jing Lian from Taiwan and along with a few volunteers, they began to visit the needy and poor in the local community. Along the way, many individuals were inspired to join in the compassionate work of Tzu Chi.

On 15 August 1991, 40 volunteers from Singapore went on a root-searching trip to Tzu Chi Headquarter in Hualien, Taiwan for the first time. This has brought about the official registration of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Merits Society (Singapore Branch) two years later in September 1993. After which, the branch office put in much effort to develop the missions of helping the poor and inspiring the rich in Singapore.

Many thanks to Dharma Master Hui Qi for sparing a space for Tzu Chi brothers and sisters for meetings and activities at the Bao Guang Temple (Poh Kwan Foh Tang) in the early days.

In August 1998, the Singapore branch was officially renamed Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation. In December the same year, the branch office was relocated to Trengganu Street in Chinatown. The new office had thus become the spiritual home for local Tzu Chi people. In early 1999, Master Cheng Yen sent one of her disciples, Sister Zhang Hong Lin from Taiwan to help in the development of the Singapore branch. Tzu Chi Cultural Centre was then renamed as Still Thoughts Cultural Services (Singapore). In 2004, Jingsi Books & Café was set up adjacent to the Chinatown office as a retail outlet to continue promoting the various publications of Tzu Chi.

In early 2003, Mr David Liu, the CEO of Tzu Chi Malacca branch was appointed by Master Cheng Yen to hold a concurrent post in Singapore branch.

Abiding the Buddha’s spirit of “Great Mercy even to Strangers, Great Compassion for All”, and following the principle of “Respecting life”, Tzu Chi people in Singapore strive to carry out the “Four Missions” and “Eight Footsteps” of Tzu Chi in the local community. Besides giving financial assistance and spiritual care to the needy, in 1999, the branch office also reach out to HIV patients and their families by providing them with support and concern. The Tzu Chi Free Clinic was then set up in August 2004 to serve the senior citizens and Tzu Chi’s aid recipients in Singapore.

Since early 2000, the Singapore Branch had extended its Medical mission by holding free clinic service twice a year for the sick and poor in neighbouring Indonesian islands such as Batam, Bintan, Karimun etc. To date, more than 20,000 locals have benefited from the service. The free clinic has also inspired many local Chinese to join in as Tzu Chi volunteers, which led to the establishment of a liaison office in Batam in year 2005.

The Singapore branch office was officially relocated to its new premise at Pasir Ris in October 2005. The Tzu Chi Continuing Education Centre was launched two months later in December 2005. It was launched with the objective of having another avenue to facilitate the spreading of Tzu Chi culture and humanities via classes such as Flower Arrangement, Chinese Calligraphy, Tea Arts and Sign Language to the general public.

At the same time, activities such as inspirational talks and beach cleaning exercises were held. On top of that, there is the ongoing monthly sharing session and recycling activities with recycling points set up in different parts of the island. All of which was aimed to encourage community participation and to enhance the sense of neighborhood cohesion.

All these years, Tzu Chi Foundation helps to bridge many caring people that have hectic work schedule to render their services to the needy. In their blue and white uniforms, the Tzu Chi volunteers reach out to the darker corners of the community, bringing love and hope to the sufferings. With a vision of “purifying minds, harmonious society and a world free of disaster and suffering”, these volunteers had left beautiful footprints on their lives as well as many others that they’ve touched.

With the core belief that “Inner Peace brings World Peace”, Dhammakaya Centre Singapore was set up as a Buddhist Meditation Society back in September 1999, with teaching and promoting meditation as its principal activity. Meditation is a popular activity suitable for all ages, races and religions, and particularly relevant for people living in a dynamic and fast-paced city like Singapore. On top of well-established benefits to one’s physical health, it has also been shown to be effective in reducing stress and elevating cognitive abilities and work productivity. In the area of inter-personal relationship, it has an even more profound impact; a positive change at the individual’s emotional level has a positive influence on the well-being of one’s immediate family and community, thus setting in place the foundation for a world that is accepting, inclusive and cohesive. This is the world that we value and aspire for. The DCS Building was designed specifically to provide a space of tranquillity to anyone who seeks to achieve that inner peace. It’s like an oasis in a desert, a safe harbour to nourish an individual’s mind. Having set base at Punggol, we are now ready to fully pursue our mission to benefit the masses. In lock-step with the development of the Punggol district, we shall now march towards a blissful, harmonious and prosperous society.

KYCL Story

Kwan Yin Chan Lin Zen Centre (KYCL) was founded by Venerable Chi Boon in 1991. Its objective is to spread the Buddha’s true teaching so that we may attain our true selves and help all sentient beings to relieve from suffering. By practicing the correct meditation, we can find the correct direction of our lives and attain our true nature. We can also clearly perceive our correct situation, relationship and function at every moment, live in wisdom and compassion, to help our families, our friends, our country and this whole world to gain peace and happiness.

The name of our Zen Centre, “Kwan Yin Chan Lin”, carries a deep meaning. “Kwan” means to perceive and “Yin” means the sound of the world. “Kwan Yin” (in Korean, “Kwan Um”) means to perceive the sound within us, to remove our ignorance, attachment and incorrect mindset, and to practice the correct path. In addition, we should also perceive the sound of all sentient beings and help them to relieve from suffering and gain happiness. “Chan”, which is the Chinese word for Zen, represents simple and pure life. At present days, our lives are becoming more and more complicated, and many sufferings are made as a consequence. Zen practice can help us return to simple life and let our minds return to peace, tranquility, holiness and freedom. “Lin” means many tree. The many trees that make up a forest give it strength, and cannot be blown away by strong wind. “Chan Lin” represents many people practicing together so we can help each other and give each other strength to fulfil the great Buddhist vow.

Notes and Events:

Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, an architecture masterpiece of the nineteenth century, also represents a unique pageant of Singapore history.

An amazing and eventful history of the Monastery relates back to the year 1858. Low Kim Pong, a young man of twenty from Zhangzhou County in the Fujian province, China , left his hometown and set sail for Singapore in search of a living. Born into a poor family, he was nevertheless generous and industrious by nature. Starting off from small businesses, the devoted Buddhist Low Kim Pong eventually became a successful entrepreneur and an influential leader of the Fujian community in Singapore .

In 1898, both Low Kim Pong and his son dreamt of a sacred man, radiating golden light, approaching from the West to the water front. Believing this to be an omen and with a continuing enthusiasm, they went to the waterfront and waited patiently. A boat finally arrived at dusk, with Venerable Xian Hui and his family of 12 monks and nuns.

They were actually stopping by Singapore , after six years of pilgrimage to India , Ceylon and Burma and were on their way home to Fuzhou County in Fujian.

Venerable Xian Hui and his entourage were invited to Low Kim Pong\\\'s home for a sojourn. During their stay, Low Kim Pong proposed to Venerable Xian Hui his vision of building a monastery in Singapore . So intent on having the familyl to stay, he donated 50 acres of land in the central part of the island (the present day Toa Payoh New Town) to build the monastery and invited Venerable Xian Hui to be the founding abbot of the monastery.

The plan to build the Monastery received overwhelming support from the Chinese community in Singapore , Malaysia and Indonesia .

Apart from monetary support, they also deploy the resources of craftsmen from their hometowns Fuzhou , Quanzhou and Zhangzhou Counties in the Fujian province, as well as Chaozhou County in the Guangdong province to build the Monastery. Together they created a unique blend of architectural styles particular to each region yet harmoniously fused to reflect the immigrant society of Singapore at that time.

Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, with its rich and diverse history, exhibits a magnitude and splendour beyond description. Coupled with the eleven years of restoration work since 1991, this century old Monastery has finally regained its glory. Undeniably, Shuang Lin Shall become a milestone in the heritage of Singapore.

What is “Metta”?
“Metta” in Pali means “loving kindness”.

Metta Welfare Association

The Metta Welfare Association (Metta) was founded in 1992 by Venerable Shi Fa Zhao, Abbot of the Golden Pagoda Buddhist Temple. He is also the President and Abbot of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.

Registered as a charity in 1994, Metta is presently endorsed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education. We are also members of the National Council of Social Service, Singapore Hospice Council and Singapore Disability Sports Council.

Motto
Compassionate love to share
Brightens hope to those we care
