At the summit of Wonderful Enlightenment Mountain,

Dragons fly about and lions dance,

Within the inherent Buddha nature,

Dwell in samadhi, at ease like an immortal.

Another version of translation:

Dragons soar and lions dance at the summit of Wonderful Enlightenment Mountain,
Rest in samadhi and be free like an immortal in your inherent Buddha-nature.

—by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua


妙覺山建計劃工程監督委員會於616日晚間曾於萬佛聖城大殿簡報,指出2016年因溼地面積擴大,因此申請將工程預定地向北移400呎,於該年11月獲縣議會通過此項建地許可(use permit)修正案。第一期工程與新佛殿用地經北移後,得以位於工程預定地的最高點而遠離溼地,更符合環保精神



On June 16th, the construction oversight committee for the Wonderful Enlightenment Mountain Project gave a short presentation in the CTTB Buddha Hall. They pointed out that in 2016 there was wetland expansion that required the team request to move the project 400 feet north. This was approved. The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors voted to issue a revised use permit in November, 2016. Buildings of the first construction phase and the new Buddha Hall will now be located on the highest point of the proposed construction area and far away from the wetland. Hence, they are much more environmentally-friendly.

2017817日,獲得整地許可(grading permit)。但因已接近雨季,縣政府規定每年10月中旬至次年4月中旬不得整地,因此將整地工程延至20185月。多年來眾所期盼的妙覺佛教學院興建計劃,在法總四眾弟子一心一德共同努力之下,終於在今年展開第一期工程的施工,逐步實現「為法界眾生興建一座智慧與慈悲燈塔」的願景,並以此初步的成果作為 宣公上人百歲誕之獻禮。

The grading permit was received on August 17th, 2017, but as the rainy season drew, Mendocino County specified that no grading work would be allowed from mid-October to mid-April during the rainy season. Hence, the grading work was delayed until May 2018. This year, the well-anticipated Wonderful Enlightenment Mountain Project finally began its first stage of construction because of the collected effort made wholeheartedly by the fourfold assembly of the Dharma Realm Buddhist Association. Step by step, we are realizing the vision of “building a beacon of wisdom and compassion for all living beings of the Dharma Realm. We are presenting this preliminary accomplishment as an offering in honor of the centennial of Venerable Master Hua’s birthday.
