Fo Guang Shan (Literally translated as The Mountain of Buddha's light) is an international Chinese Buddhist monastic order based in Dashu District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan that practices Humanistic Buddhism. It is the largest Buddhist monastery in Taiwan.
Founded in 1967 by Hsing Yun, the order promotes Humanistic Buddhism and is known for its efforts in the modernization of Chinese Buddhism. In Taiwan, Hsing Yun is popularly referred to as one of the "Four Heavenly Kings" which refers to four masters in Taiwanese Buddhism who each founded an influential Buddhist institution in the country.
The term draws its name from the Four Heavenly Kings who rule over one of the heavenly realms in Buddhist cosmology.
Like the Four Heavenly Kings in Buddhist mythology, each Buddhist teacher corresponds to one cardinal direction, based on where their organization is located in Taiwan referred to as the "Four Great Mountains"
The order is famous for its use of technology and its temples are often furnished with the latest equipment. So if you think temples are always filled with relics contained in old rugged wood furnishings with age old carvings, you might want to reconsider that upon visiting this compound.
