The Great Compassion Bodhi Prajna Temple, Toronto Canada,
invites you to initiate the field of merit.
Having proper knowledge can benefit you for lifetimes. One who studies Buddhism with correct knowledge and views is not only able to gradually subjugate his/her own mind, but also start to part with all causes of pain, to plant the seeds of good causation, and to obtain joy for the present life and future. Furthermore, he/she becomes capable of the way of the Bodhisattva to benefit self and others, staying off the course of suffering and achieving happiness.
The Great Compassion Bodhi Prajna Temple abbess Master Miao Jing and Master Miao Yin recognize that Buddhism is not just about teaching the disciples to burn incense and worship. Buddha’s teachings respond to modern society. It is essential to teach those determined to learn Buddhism, including youngsters, step by step. First is to cultivate moral principles and establish right conduct before getting into Buddha’s dharma and enhancing one’s thoughts. This is to build in the disciples the habit of seeking dharma first, then reflecting, and then acting, so as to truly incorporate Buddha’s teaching into every moment in life.
The Great Compassion Bodhi Prajna Temple built a temple near Toronto in order to keep Buddhadharma everlasting. The primary focus is not on holding ceremonies, but rather on teaching adults and adolescents to continue the Buddha’s dharma-body and wisdom-life by meditation, hearing the dharma, and group practice. The Great Compassion Bodhi Prajna Temple hopes to propagate Buddhism to the Western world so that people can learn to calm their minds with peace and enable everyone to acquire true understanding and right views and to create harmony among family and friends; ultimately, to reach a society and a world free of disasters.
