台灣南部佛教聖地——佛光山

:::

1976 / 8月



佛光山位於高雄縣大樹鄉境內高旗公路畔麻竹園,四周一片突起丘陵,面臨下淡水溪,風景綺麗。佇立山上,俯瞰一片蕉林,青山翠谷,阡陌縱橫,山光水色,綠意盎然。佛光山佔地約五十甲左右,原係一座荒山,民國五十六年五月十六日,有位星雲上人,因感於台灣需要一所佛教大學暨十方叢林,於是廣籌經費,著手佛光山闢建工作。迄今九年,可說已經粗具規模。

目前完成的建設工程,有東方佛教學院校舍、朝山會館、大悲殿、國際兒童村、以及各處亭台、環山道路、放生池,接引大佛。正在以及以後將陸續興建的還有禪堂、念佛堂、藏經樓、法堂、戒壇、大願塔、佛光精舍、普門中學、佛教文物陳列館、極樂世界。在現有建築物中最引人注目的,就是接引大佛,豎立於佛光山東山之上,高一百二十二台尺,佛像周圍有六尺高的小型接引佛像環繞,共計四百八十尊,猶如一座佛城,誠屬不可多見的盛景。

Fo Kuang Mountain--Torch of Buddha


Beside the Kaochi Highway in Tashu Hsiang of Kaohsiung County, Fo Kuang Mountain stands as the torch of Buddha. Facing the Kaoping River, it is higher than all the other points nearby. It provides a clear view of the nearby banana plantations, green valleys and the criss-cross paths on the farmland. Fo Kuang Mountain, which covers 50 chias of land (48.5 hectares about 121.3 acres), was originally a desolate place. On May 16, 1967, Monk Hsinyun felt that Taiwan needed a Buddhist College. He raised funds and started the construction work at Fo Kuang Mountain. Now, after nine years, the college has a good foundation.

So far, the construction works that have been completed are: the classrooms of the Oriental Buddhist College, the Union Building, the Great Mercy Temple, International Children's Village, many pagodas, a pond where turtles are released and a statue of Buddha facing the entrance. Now under construction or planned are: meditation room, library, place for taking vows, ritual room, "big wish" tower, monks' dormitory, Pumen High school, and Buddhism cultural display museum. The most impressive feature is the statue of Buddha at the college entrance. It stands on the east side of the mountain top, 122 feet tall surrounded by 480 statuettes of Buddha. This Buddha city is very spectacular.
