On the evening of October 7, 2023, the 2023 “Zen Realm” large-scale original stage play and Suxin Charity Dinner hosted by the Xing Wu Zen Temple Society was once again wonderfully reproduced and achieved a very complete success. In particular, Master Shi Xing Wu’s performance of the Golden Bell and Iron Shirt once again shocked Vancouver. Xing Wu Zen Temple once again proved with its strength that “Zen Realm” is a high-level large-scale original stage play.
There were more than 200 guests at this charity event, and more than 160 actors participated in the performance of “Zen Realm”. The “Zen Realm” stage play is an original brand program of Xing Wu Zen Temple, and the Suxin Charity Dinner is one of the large-scale charity events that Xing Wu Zen Temple must organize every year. Everyone came together with love and participated in the grand event, contributing to the preparation of the Xing Wu Zen Temple, and continuing to carry forward Chinese traditional culture and Zen realm in Canada. The merits are immeasurable!
Master Shi Xing Wu, abbot of Xing Wu Zen Temple, delivered a speech:
Dharma does not arise alone but depends on fate.
On the road between man and heaven, doing good deeds comes first.
In the forest of merit, giving always comes first.
Buddha Amitabha! Good evening, everybody! I am Master Shi Xing wu, the abbot of Xing wu Zen Temple in Canada. I am very grateful to every Bodhisattva present today. With your generosity and strong support, we will work harder and do better and better!
The Xing Wu Zen Temple Society is a legal charity organization officially approved by the Canadian federal government on February 10, 2022.
Our mission is:
1. Promote the development of religion.
2. Help for poverty people in the society or with low incomes.
Our vision is:
Compassion with great love, and help all living beings.
The purpose of holding today’s event is to raise funds for the construction of the Xingwu Zen Temple. We have purchased land for the temple construction in Langley and Mission and we have been working hard to move forward.
The construction of the temple requires a lot of manpower, material, and financial support, and it also relies on the love and blessings from all people. Contribute to the construction of temples and let the light of Buddha save all sentient beings.
I am grateful to all the virtuous Bodhisattvas for their compassion and blessings.
Thanks again to all actors who participated in the “Zen Realm” performance today, as well as all the staff, teachers, volunteers, and their parents in front of and behind the scenes. Thank you for all the dedication!
I wish you all have a pleasant evening with visual enjoyment and taste bud experience!
Thank you all again! Buddha Amitabha!
