[break] In the vastness of the universe, the earth is like a drop of water in the sea. In the course of history and evolution, this beautiful blue planet has welcomed an unprecedented age of prosperity. In the Dharma Vanishing Era, globalization is engulfing the world. The earth is experiencing an unprecedented transformation at multiple levels in the transition between old and new ideological trends.
[break] When prosperity and disintegration, war and peace, development and poverty are co-existing, a glorious milestone – “Holy Mountain Buddha Land” is erected on the road towards world peace and religious harmony. In order to realize the philosophy of human health, world peace and religious harmony, and guide the people with affinity towards light and liberation, in the magnificent Hall of Amitabha Buddha, Honorable Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi announced with his clear and pure Buddha sound: “Holy Mountain Buddha Land is born in the Saha world!”
[break] In a blink of an eye, this great news was spreading all over the space realm in the universe; all Buddha lands were shaken by the blissful power! Thousands of beautiful Sanskrit sounds and songs were resonating; splendid rainbow lights weaving through the air shone upon the Hall. The Cosmic Halo was covering the whole pure Land of Bliss. A bridge towards the Buddha Land in the space realm was formed in a second, transcending time and space in the attunement of emptiness and form. All Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the three thousand galaxies bestowed their blessings with jubilation for this new legendary page in the history of the world.
[break] The flag of the Holy Mountain Buddha Land has arisen, waving in sky above the Western Shrine. Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi made an illuminating speech: “Holy Mountain Buddha Land is a symbol of religious harmony, serving as a cornerstone of world peace and foundation of disseminating Guang Huan Mi Zong’s Mahayana Buddhism. It has proven Shakyamuni Buddha’s prophecy 2,500 years ago – Buddhist Dharma will be widespread all over the world from a virtuous and gracious place. Guang Huan Mi Zong Dharma is like the Ocean which embraces thousands of rivers, and eventually all dharmas will return to their origin.”
[break] Throughout history and across the world, founding a “utopia” is the dream of those who have ambitious hearts. That is a Buddha’s nation. The descendant of Holy Mountain Buddha Land will continue the legacy of Shakyamuni Buddha’s Right Dharma and thus signifies a turning point in history. It embodies profound meaning for the promotion of Guang Huan Mi Zong culture.
[break] To realize a Buddha Land on this planet is the dream of all Buddha’s children. Holy Mountain Buddha Land carries a noble mission which requires the endeavors of all Buddha’s children. It will be an unprecedented time for the Saha world under Mahavairocana Buddha’s light and honorable Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi’s leadership and guidance. Founding Holy Mountain Buddha Land will offer the opportunities that everyone with the affinity in the world has been longing for – opportunity with vitality, opportunity towards achievement, and provide a stage for them to utilize their talents and make their dreams. When the Buddha Land of the space realm manifests in the world, whoever participates in and donates for the founding of Holy Mountain Buddha Land will receive immeasurable merit and incredible benefits.
[break] The birth of Holy Mountain Buddha Land will bring luck to all those with good affinity who were born in this complicated era and glory to all the Buddha’s children who are in this cause. Guided by Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi’s philosophy – World Peace, Human Health and Religious Harmony, Holy Mountain Buddha Land designates Guang Huan Mi Zong Mahayana teachings as its religion; it will unite all virtuous religions, facilitate diplomacy and promote Nine Vehicle Great Perfection Esoteric Dharma, for purifying the world.
