An Introduction to Fo Guang Shan North Island NZ

Auckland is known as the ¡°City of Sails¡±. Fo Guang Shan North Island is situated in this stunning international city famous for its yachts, and occupied an area of four hectares.
The planning of the Temple is adapted from the palatial design of the Tang Dynasty, using greyish green glazed roof tiles, maroon stone pillars and vertical slat window frames to project magnificence, grandeur, cultivation and strength. The courtyard is lined with stone lanterns of the Tang Dynasty, with pine trees, bamboo, cherry blossoms and willows imparting an atmosphere of grace and elegance. The temple is next to the new 64.7-hectare Sir Barry Curtis Park, one of the largest parks in Auckland. With thousands of trees planted, the Park and the Temple will be complementary to each other.
Fo Guang Shan North Island will not only continue to be a place where monastics can live and propagate Buddhism, but also a ¡°Home of Wisdom¡± to all. Fo Guang Shan North Island will carry on the ideal of Humanistic Buddhism as expounded by Venerable Master Hsing Yun, fulfilling the four mottoes of ¡°Giving Others Confidence¡±, ¡°Giving Others Joy¡±, ¡°Giving Others Convenience¡± and ¡°Giving Others Hope¡±, so that with the Buddha¡¯s light shining across the three thousand realms and Dharma water flowing through the five continents, the goals of localisation, internationalism, multiculturalism and youthfulness will be achieved.
