& Elsewhere in the WORLD........

Pls see examples how MGMT & new SKILLs BREATHES LIVE into Temples.
I was in Lin Yee temple(HZ) & Ling SHAN DA FO (WUXI) & i saw GREAT developments. New structures were added, People coming in to enjoy the VAST Parks, devotees chanting SUTRAS, People PRAYING for BUDDHA Blessings,etc....

WHAT A JOY FOR ME TOO SEE & Participate in such activities. There is no supertitions, no complicated thoughts, but can feel the GOOD VIBES in the surrounding air......

However, some people still continue to slander the work of  monks. Unless they are struck with BAD luck, they never learn that it is NEVER good to slander such GREAT figures as BUDDHA & his disciples!!!:)

Pls write/vote your thoughts.

I hope Mods will also keep an eye on this thread as there may be members who are not welcome to this thread trys to destroy/ write nonsense here
Thank you very much.

Like Buddha says, with LOVING KINDNESS
& ALL BE WELL & HAPPY

:)

Monks breathe life into templeBy Liu Zhen (China Daily)
Updated: 2008-12-19 08:19 Comments() PrintMailKUNMING - With their lessons in management and kungfu, 14 monks from the Shaolin Temple are breathing new life into four previously monk-free Buddhist temples here in the Yunnan provincial capital, officials said on Thursday.

Over the next 30 years, the monks from the world famous monastery will help teach Buddhism practices and introduce their martial art and traditional medical knowledge to the region, Master Yanjiang, the abbot assigned to manage the four temples, told China Daily.

Four more monks from the 1,500-year-old temple in Hennan province will be sent to Yunnan by the end of the year, he said.

"The idea is to first help the temples with regular management, like chanting sutras in the mornings and evenings, and teaching them Buddhist practices," Yanjiang said.

The monks were sent to Yunnan as part of an arrangement between temples in the two provinces to "bridge their cultures and increase Shaolin's influence in Yunnan", officials said earlier.

Yunnan temples "will follow the business mode of the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai, a model for city temples, while the Shaolin Temple will be a model for countryside and tourism features," Yanjiang said.

The Jade Buddha Temple is known for its culture, charity and temple management. Since 2005, it has sent dozens of monks to study temple management at Shanghai's Jiaotong University.

Yanjiang said he was also considering enrolling new monks at the Yunnan temples and training them to become kungfu monks with the skills to put on performances of the martial art. There are also plans to establish charity organizations to help orphans and poor children interested in studying Buddhism, he said.

"We will try to promote a combination of Henan and Yunnan cultures to increase the influence of Shaolin," the abbot said.

The 14 monks have already had an impact on temple life, locals have said.

Dou Weibao, director of the Guandu district nationality affairs commission, said that before the Shaolin monks arrived, there were no monks at all in the four Yunnan temples.

"The only people working there were cleaners hired by the government," he said.

An incense seller at the Fading temple said her business has been brisk since the monks arrived.

"There used to be hardly any visitors, but now people are pouring in.

"They (the monks) will revitalize the temple and benefit people like me," the woman, who asked not to be named, said.
