Today is the 245th Anniversary of the Independence Day of the USA, and the Completion Day of the “Wing” Project of the Holy Mountain Buddha Land. This Wing will serve as a chapel to deliver compassion, love, and blessing to those in need. It is another finished project after Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi traveling from the East to the West, imparting the Great Perfection Buddhist Dharma in the western countries and setting up a Western Esoteric Dharma Base, the Holy Mountain Buddha Land, 20 years ago. To memorize and celebrate the Independence Day and the completion of the Wing, followed by his disciples, Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi held a grand ceremony at the Reception Hall of Holy Mountain Buddha Land.
On July 4th, 1776, after overcoming all the struggles, hardship, and difficulties, a group of people who longed for freedom, equality, and peace, declared the freedom of their land to the world and promised to the people that the United States will become the country of freedom, equality, and peace.
Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi indicates that Guang Huan Mi Zong denomination delivers the Dharma from East to West, and set up the first Western Esoteric Dharma Base in the upstate of New York. It is for the Buddhist disciples to practice the Dharma and develop their home – the grand Holy Mountain Buddha Land. People from all walks of life are welcome to learn the Dharma at the Holy Mountain Buddha Land and attain the benefits. These benefits include not only helping people embrace a free, abundant, and beautiful life, but also facilitating the nation to develop peacefully and fruitfully.
The Wing Shows You the Direction
Under the blue sky and snow-white clouds, there is a grand building standing on the high hill. With the sound of the hymn and the aroma of freedom and happiness floating in the air, the Wing is ready to start its journey.
We hail to the Independence Day, and to the world-honored Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi, who disseminates the Guang Huan Mi Zong Great Perfection Dharma to the world, and helps thousands of thousands of people to relieve the pain and illnesses so that they can embrace a new and prosperous life!

From the Buddhist Sutra: During the Dharma Vanishing Era, this world will be endangered by drastic changes such as unpredictable weather, frequent occurrences of widespread epidemics, disasters, and fatal illnesses.
In the Lunar Calendar, the 15th of July is known as the Zhongyuan Festival or Bon Festival. It is a day to honor the spirits of one’s ancestors, guide and help them to find peace, by burning joss paper for the deceased as well as feeding lost souls.
To help relieve the sins and pain of all beings (alive and deceased) from suffering, the Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi will compassionately hold a Soul Relieving Ceremony at the Temple of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva in the Holy Mountain Buddha Land on September 2, 2020.

On the auspicious sunny day, a grand celebration of the Holy Birthday of Manjusri Bodhisattva has been held by Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi at the Guanyin Holy Mountain. Attendees were all grateful in receiving this precious Dharma teaching.
The Honorable Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi imparted his teaching to his followers, revealing the predestination between Manjusri Bodhisattva and Exalted Shakyamuni Buddha:
Where is the Pure Land?
Who will have the fortuity to be born in the illuminated Pure Land?
How can Dharma help people become born into the illuminated Pure Land?
The compassionate Holy Master urged his followers to cherish their lives for doing something meaningful, and not try to waste time, because the chance of listening to the righteous Dharma, practice the Dharma, and accumulate their merit is priceless.
All attendees were deeply touched by Holy Master’s teaching. With gratitude in their hearts, they answer the calls of His Holiness, devoting themselves to developing the Guanyin Holy Mountain. Their goal is simple: to develop a place where people can learn and practice the Dharma, and promote the mission of Guang Huan Mi Zong – Human Health, World Peace and Religious Harmony.
