Fo Guang Shan Saint Louis Buddhist Center is one of over 200 branch temples of the Fo Guang Shan International Buddhist Order founded by Venerable Master Hsing Yun.
The order’s objectives are to promote Humanistic Buddhism which embraces all traditions and schools, and to bring forth faith, joy, hope, and service for all. We hope to establish a Pure Land on earth and integrate the Buddha’s teachings of kindness, compassion, joyfulness, and equanimity into our daily lives.
Consistent with the Order’s objectives, the Center was established in 1999 to serve as a spiritual and cultural center for anyone interested in learning about the diverse cultures of Buddhism and Chinese traditions. Activities and services have been conducted to uphold the four main principles of the Order:
