Wu Sheng Monastery
Wu Sheng Monastery is the headquarters of the LJM Buddhist Society. Chan Master Hsin Tao founded the monastery in 1983, after a long and rough retreat in caves. Wu Sheng Monastery is the upper monastery of Ling Jiou Mountain, and it keeps the looks of the natural state, humble and modest, in realization of the “love earth, love peace” philosophy.
Sangha is the pillar of Buddism, the sum of all teachings. Infrastructures such as the main meditation hall and the main vihara are the cultivation, learning and living space for sangha.
Here is the sacred place for worshipping Buddha, hearing the Dharma, and meditating. Please do not frolic, burn joss paper or evoke supernatural spirits.
