IBPS Houston Dharma Protectors

Make offerings to support the Dharma
Receive blessings, peace, and wisdom
May the Right Dharma remain with us forever
May Buddhism prosper and flourish in all realms

From its beginning, Fo Guang Shan Chung Mei Temple has actively provided various Dharma programs based on the objectives of Fo Guang Shan, to propagate Buddhist teachings through cultural activities, to foster talent through education, to benefit society through charitable programs, and to purify human hearts and minds through Buddhist practice. With the expansion of Dharma programs and the growth in the number of devotees, expenditures for utilities, insurance, and maintenance also increase. Therefore, years ago faithful devotees initiated the Dharma Protector Committee to assist the temple. May Buddha bless you and your family with peace and good fortune!

About VEGE PLAN A

The catastrophic calamity caused by global warming and climate change is not in a distant future. The late world’s most famous master of physics and astronomy, Hawking, in 2017, in Starmus Festival at Trondheim, Norway gave a warning to mankind again:”The earth will probably perish in 500 years or so.” In fact, Hawking had warned repeatedly that the earth is rapidly consuming energy, which will turn it into a fiery fire ball and lead to the destruction of mankind.

Hawking stated:”We are making the phenomenon of global warming irreversible.” However, Hawking is not entirely pessimistic. He said:”Although climate change is one of the major crisis, it can be prevented if human take immediate action.”
