THE SAGELY CITY OF TEN THOUSAND BUDDHAS

 

Some Historical Photographs of the City of 10,000 Buddhas

The Founder of the Sagely City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, the
Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

I came to America to propagate the Buddhadharma and to rescue living beings from suffering and bring them happiness. "Ten thousand births and deaths and hundreds of difficult ordeals" is a perfect description of my life. I underwent countless hardships to establish the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. Don't let it be destroyed. When I came to America, I made a great vow: I wanted to be a sculptor who would mould living Buddhas, living Bodhisattvas, and living Patriarchs...If I can't transform all the living beings of the world into living Buddhas, living Bodhisattvas, and living Patriarchs, I'll never become a Buddha myself.
