Chung Mei Buddhist Temple

Chung Mei Buddhist Temple was built on 2001 as part of the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist society, that propagates the teachings of the Buddha around the five Continents. The temple served as a center for Buddhist devotees to continue propagating Humanistic Buddhism and the Fo Guang Shan’s Four Essence, in order to establish the Pure Land on earth. “In Buddhism there is the concept of the pure land. A pure land is a realm created through the power of the Buddha’s vows to ease the suffering of living beings,”Hsing Yun writes. “Humanistic Buddhism seeks to create a pure land on Earth.”

Instead of a secluded area in the forest, Chung Mei Temple is located at Stafford, within the Houston– Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area in Texas. It enjoys the serenity and quietness of the forest, but also conveniently accessible by city visitors. The name “Chung Mei” means Mid America, hence the location, which serves as the bridge between East and West coast, as well as Eastern religion and Western culture.
