They were welcomed by Venerable Abbess Manshin, Venerables and BLIA members. The Abbess introduced the Commission Members the temple¡¯s functions and cooperation with the local community, such as giving out over 20000 copies of ¡°366 Day¡¯s with Wisdom¡± by Venerable Master Hsing Yun to many motels, hotels, hospitals and restaurants throughout the country over a 2 year period, and copies of the book were also given to the guests as presents. She also mentioned the various Dharma Functions at the temple were held to fulfil the spiritual needs of the devotees, hence everyone at the meeting today are welcomed to visit the temple again with their friends and families.
