At 10 a.m. on September 2, the sounds of the bell and drum resonated across Dharma Drum Mountain World Center for Buddhist Education. More than 3,000 representatives of monastic and lay practitioners of DDM from home and abroad participated in the succession ceremony of the sixth abbot president of DDM, which was broadcast online in real time. In the ceremony “Inheriting the Past and Inspiring the Future,” participants celebrated the inaugural of Ven. Guo Huei, wishing him success in continuing to lead the DDM Sangha in its endeavor to promote “Protecting the Spiritual Environment” movement and popular Buddhist education through social care.
It all started in 2010 at the first camp of “Experience Protecting the Spiritual Environment” (心靈環保體驗營) in Mianyang (綿陽)Secondary School in Sichuan in 2010. That was the first time I encountered Dharma Drum Mountain (DDM). At the camp, we played games, learned to relax and listened to Dharma teachers sharing their thoughts on “protecting the spiritual environment”. I realized that this group of people truly sought to help us. Therefore as soon as I graduated from High School, I returned as a volunteer to pass on to my younger friends what touched me. At the same time, I was determined to devote more time to get to know DDM better.
The Social Welfare and Charity Foundation of Dharma Drum Mountain (法鼓山慈善基金會), DDM SWCF, supported by the love from society, donated a Community Shuttle Bus to provide free transportation for the blessed aboriginal tribes of Nan-ao Village. The ceremony to donate this bus was held in front of the Ataya Culture Center (泰雅文化館) at 9:00 a.m. on July 2nd. Tribal seniors, the head of each village and the principals of several schools, accompanied by around 100 villagers, participated in the ceremony. Together, they dedicated passionate dances and warm blessings, in celebration of this event.
In principle, Buddhism has no dogmas. What are closest to being dogmatic are the precepts. But precepts for Buddhists are not a covenant with God, so they are not mysterious as in some religions. Precepts in Buddhism come from principles of ethics and are hence purely rational.
The eighth Dharma Drum Mountain Global Sangha Assembly took place at Dharma Drum Mountain World Center for Buddhist Education on June 26, with over 300 monastics at home and from aboard in attendance. The assembly passed the resolution to appoint Ven. Guo Huei (果暉法師) as DDM’s sixth abbot-president.
