Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery  

Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery

Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery was established in January 1994 which played a role in organizing charity sales to raise billions of dollars to construct Fo Guang University (FGU) in Ilan Chaohsi. Since its cause and condition (yuan) came from the FGU, it is named Fo Guang Yuan (condition of the Buddha's Light), which is a wonderful combination of Buddhism, art, literature and academic studies.

The establishment of Fo Guang Yuan Art Galleries within Fo Guang Shan branch temples follows Master Hsing Yun's wish to display the conditions which have been brought forth by Fo Guang University. To propagate Buddhism through culture is one of the four major objectives of Fo Guang Shan, and the purpose of establishing its branch temples is to integrate them with the arts of Buddhism.

In 2006, Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery 1st Gallery in New Zealand is situated in Fo Guang Shan North Island Temple (IBT New Zealand). Many kinds of arts and masterpieces have been exhibited in this Gallery. The objective of this Art Gallery is to provide the opportunity for the people in New Zealand to get into the entry of art, religion, culture and knowledge.
