Temple  Future outlook 

With the spirit of Buddhism, tell whom we encounter about the benefits of practicing Buddhist Dharma.

Zilian Temple is a Buddhist dome, which is a master of the King Kong ride of Buddhism. The practitioners of Violet Temple are dependent on the Buddhist lord, the South Moben Master, Sakhamoni Buddha, and, the masses and so on to the commandments as teachers, to the law as teachers, day after day to practice the SecretIst Capricorn law (interest, increase, bosom, shoal), growth of life. The Capricorn law is convenient law gate, to provide practitioners, in the practice at the same time need to disaster relief, gain, love and so on, so that the people and other people can get practice of all kinds of food and great interests.

We practice Buddhism by continuously cleansing the Karma caused by the body, mouth, and mind.

The practice of Violet Temple is to uphold the three close lines of secret religion (clean body, clean mouth, clean meaning) to practice. In life, inadvertently, it is easy to create a body-to-mouth industry (three industries);

We held charity events to help the poor, inspire good deeds, and propagate Buddhist compassion & wisdom.

In the early old ways and schools to the present, Zilian Temple has been working on winter relief activities since 1993 (year-end), assisting charitable organizations in raising food and clothing, co-organizing public welfare activities, caring for the elderly, the disabled and the poor. Has always been adhering to the compassion of Buddhism love, regardless of your spirit, all the way to the present. Its purpose is to rise and go, and to inspire those who have a chance, to see the bitter and blessed, to see the good to pursue.

Cleaning karmic causes and manifesting one's Buddha-nature

The practice of Zilian Temple, the ultimate attachment is the West's pleasure clean soil. The teaching of the Dharma Gate encourages practitioners to read the Buddha to the point where they can see before the Ameda Buddha. And at the end of his life, Ameda Buddha is now coming to meet, to go to the joy of clean soil. The practice of secret religion is to knot the handprint of the Meadow, hold its curse, and always think of oneself and the Meadow. Nature, its own clean as Buddha, everywhere is the Buddha's clean soil.
