Christmas trees were lighted up and decorations were made on the white Christmas Eve to celebrate this most important holiday. Folks from across the world came to the Health Hall of Guang Huan Mi Zong, spending a good time together, and cheering for the completion of this grand building. The eminent Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi held the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Health Hall and announced the launching of “GHMZ One Day Zen” to the world for free. His Holiness explained that this unique practice can bring the hope of health to all people in the world.

In a prophecy of the Native Indian, a saint in a red robe will save the world, including the Native Indians. After encountering the Supreme Dharma of Guang Huan Mi Zong and hearing the teachings of Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi, they believed Holy Master is the saint in the prophecy.
Santa Claus came to give the gifts.
However, due to his poor health conditions (hypertension, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol), Santa Claus fainted on the ground after he delivered gifts to the kids all over the world. When the elves were calling for help, Mother Mary appeared and guided Santa to learn the GHMZ One Day Zen at the Holy Mountain Buddha Land.
With the help of GHMZ Health Dharma, Santa Claus regained health and continued his journey of gift delivery with the deer.

A Great Success — The 1st World Culture Harmony Festival
With the support of the eminent Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi, The 1st World Culture Harmony Festival was held by the World Peace and Health Organization on October 4, 2017, at the Holy Mountain Buddha Land. The mission of this Festival was: (1) to promote harmony, peace, and health; (2) through culture exchanges, expand communication and understanding between nations, and develop harmony shared by all.
This meaningful event has received greetings and support letters from dozens of consulate generals from New York City, France, Great Britain, Switzerland, Ireland, Singapore, Holland, and more. Additionally, New York State Governor Cuomo sent his representatives to the event, delivering the greeting letter signed by him, and expressing his full support to the mission of harmony, peace, and health. He appreciated the Guang Huan Mi Zong Holy Mountain Buddha Land taking efforts in developing a better and more harmonious community. Canada and Brazil also sent their representatives to join this grand Festival.
During the Festival, Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi delivered his speech:
“We promote our health culture, the friendship culture, our Buddhist culture, and Guang Huan Mi Zong culture. So, I welcome you all to attend our World Culture Harmony Festival.”
With happiness, harmony, and fun, the 1st World Culture Harmony Festival ended with a great success. This event was also a rehearsal for the 2nd World Culture Harmony Festival slated for 2020. At this moment, the World Peace and Health Organization would like to invite people from all nations and backgrounds to join the next World Culture Harmony Festival in 2020. Together we can make a better world.
Lunar Calendar June 3 (June 26, 2017, AD) was the Holy Birthday of Skanda Bodhisattva (a.k.a. Wei Tuo Bodhisattva), who is the Honored Buddhist Dharma Protector. A grand Birthday Celebration was held at the Holy Mountain Buddha Land to memorize this Great Dharma Guardian’s contribution.
Holding a Vajra in his hand, the World-Honored compassionate Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi gave his speech to Sangha and laymen at this solemn ceremony. Dressing a garnet cassock and sitting with crossed legs, the World-renowned One first offered the immeasurable Buddha Light blessing to the Saha World, praised the contribution of Skanda Bodhisattva, and then imparted the truth to his followers: “The protection of Skanda Bodhisattva and other Dharma protectors was the premise of spreading Buddhism 2,500 years ago. After Buddha’s nirvana, the constant protection of Skanda and his emanations has become the reason why Buddhism could be delivered to modern days through thousands of years.”
“Every one of us received protection from Skanda Bodhisattva before time began. Therefore, we must be grateful. And the best way to show gratitude is to protect and promote the righteous Buddhist Dharma – Guang Huan Mi Zong Dharma, and take on the burden of Skanda Bodhisattva, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, and Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva.” Holy Master explained.
During the stately ceremony, the exalted Holy Master also arranged a special soul relieving ritual for those who died in the recent landslide at Xinmo Village, Sichuan Province, China, and other disasters in the world.
Dancing and singing, followers contributed their wonderful performance to celebrate the Holy Birthday of Skanda Bodhisattva, to deliver their appreciations to the blessing and speech of Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi, and to pay homage to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
Aiming to fulfill the philosophy of His Holiness – World Peace, Human Health, and Religious Harmony, all followers promised that they would treat Skanda Bodhisattva as their role model, protecting and promoting Guang Huan Mi Zong Buddhism globally, and delivering affinity beings from sufferings.
