AVATAMSAKA WORLD FOUNDATION


AVATAMSAKA WORLD FOUNDATION

In order to prepare our young generations as future leaders of their respective nations, the Avatamsaka World Foundation exists for the sole purpose of educating all children and youths in secular and Buddha Dharma knowledge, Christianity and other pagan and/or native spiritual traditions and practices.

Ours is an assistive and educational congregation of conscientious and compassionate people around the world in all walks of life with a passion to enlighten, highlight, and discuss matters of urgency related to our generation of young people living in a world of hunger, turmoil, conflicts, and regional displacements.  Scientific advancement in technology has eroded humanity to its very core. Science in and of itself is neither good or bad.  It is a tool which depends on its user to make good of it.  We believe that our only choice is not to further develop the market economy and consumerism but to immediate halt all pilferage, plunders, squanders, exploitation, and wars over all natural resources.  As well, we have no choice but to accept all people, traditions, cultures, languages, race, creeds, religions, and perspectives in order to avoid all conflicts at all costs.  We welcome other world organisations, fund sponsors, benefactors, subscribers, contributors who support our cause to join us either through financial contributions or otherwise volunteering on our virtuous path towards world peace.

The AWF will offer children and youths the opportunity to learn the English, Chinese (both Cantonese and Mandarin), computer and communication skills, arts & crafts, homemaking, cooking and gardening, permaculture design certificate training & practices, photography, philosophy, and other social sciences and humanities, in addition to a core program in the comparative studies of Buddha Dharma, Judaic Christianity (both Catholic and Protestant), Bahia, Islam, and other pagan and/or native spiritual traditions and practices.  Our attitude toward all religions and spiritual practices is all inclusive.  We make no judgment, none at all.

The Avatamsaka World Foundation is unique in their support of persons with disabilities. We encourage children and youths living with physical and/or mental disabilities to join us.

Venerable Master Sakya M. Longyen is a victim of the psychiatry industry and has been living with mental illness since 21. He has overcome all obstacles, he has stumbled and fell, he has picked himself up all by himself, and has now stood up tall, proud, like a man in the face of stigmatization and discrimination surrounding mental health.  He is a standing member of the Canadian Mental Health Association of British Columbia and has been trained and certified by Strength-in-Unity to bring attention to stigma surrounding and resolving issues of mental illness and the malpractices of the psychiatry industry.

Find the truth. Be the change.

From the Founder and Abbot of Avatamsaka Buddhist Monastery of Canada

Ven. Sakya M. Longyen

Have a nice life!

LET IT BE KNOWN THAT ON THIS DAY,

The Venerable Longyen Sakya did hereby coin the new form of Buddhist greetings.

The Venerable says, “Just say, “Buddha Be!” to each other. “

SO LET IT BE WRITTEN.

SO LET IT BE DONE.

The Meaning of Life


In and of Life, only this moment is true.  When the conditions that make up this very moment is gone, life becomes an illusion.  So at each and every moment, we have to live seriously; for each and every thing we do, we must do so seriously; and for each and every person we meet, we must treat them seriously because “conditions come and go and when they are gone, illusions set in and the truth is no more.”  Do not let yourself regret what is deemed to be too late.  Time passed is past, and we can only look to the future.  The most precious and the very thing we need to cherish is this very moment — Life is a serious of kSaNa (in Sanskrit (क्षण ), and the meaning of life is to make every single moment count.

Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of the Sentient World


Avalokiteshvara yidam

禪觀有情世界
在日常生活中體驗諸行無常
在起心動念中覺證諸法無我
在一息尚存中成就涅槃寂靜
在法界遷流中了悟緣起性空
Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of This Sentient World
Experience the Impermanence of all actions in our everyday life.
Wake up to the fact that all thoughts and intentions are void of substance.
Be one with and listen to the harmonious unstruck sound of silence of Om in Nirvana before you breathe out your last and final breath of life.
In the never ending shifts and flows of the Dharma realms wake up and come to the inner-standing and realisation that the original nature of all causes and conditions is substantively void.
From your humble gardener Venerable Sakya M. Longyen

Harmony


To be in harmony, at least one must be able to accommodate, tolerate, concede to, and accept others insofar as the ocean can contain all waters running into it and as space can permeate all things.

One must also be agreeable and be able to integrate, assimilate, and fuse all things past and present.

Therefore, harmony is more easily attained within and less without.

Do you agree?
