THE SAGELY CITY OF TEN THOUSAND BUDDHAS

Dharma Realm Buddhist University (founded in 1976)

DRBU School Song

The Buddha-nature fills up everywhere to the ends of empty space.
The continual generations of sentient beings pervade the Dharma Realm.
Living beings become Buddhas; Buddhas in turn transform their fellow beings.
The ten thousand dharmas are made from the mind alone!
The ten thousand dharmas are made from the mind alone!
United in our single goal, we revive the Sagely teachings.
Sharing bitterness, courageously standing together in the Way.
We will be open and fair, unselfish, and above all, straight minded.
Washing clean the defiling dust in the pool of the seven jewels,
Until finally, in the pure, clear light of the ten thousand Buddhas—Wonderful Enlightenment!
The ten thousand dharmas are made from the mind alone!
The ten thousand dharmas are made from the mind alone!

Sangha & Laity Training Programs (founded in 1982)

Founder’s Principles

Freezing to death, we do not scheme.
Starving to death, we do not beg.
Dying of poverty, we ask for nothing.
According with conditions, we do not change.
Not changing, we accord with conditions.
We adhere firmly to our three great principles.
We renounce our lives to do the Buddhas’ work.
We take responsibility to mold our own destinies.
We rectify our lives to fulfill our Sangha’s role.
Encountering specific matters, we understand the principles.
Understand the principles, we apply them to specific matters.
We carry on the single pulse of the patriarchs’ mind-transmission.
