Chung Mei Temple Water Drop Teahouse

Water Drop

The Water Drop Teahouse serves as a resting place for visitors in most of the Fo Guang Shan temples.

The origin of the name is based on the generous mindset of our founder, Venerable Master Hsing Yun, who vows to “repay a drop of water’s worth of kindness with a gushing spring”. Only a grateful life can become a rich life.

The Idea of the Water Drop Teahouse

  • With a beautiful Chan garden view, the Water Drop Teahouse is the perfect place for sipping a cup of tea and relaxing after a busy day. We can attain peace of mind or a spiritual awakening through the most ordinary activities, such as drinking tea, eating and putting on clothes.
  • This is also a peaceful environment where you can relax, or engage in lively conversations with your friends. The place where tea is served is a place of peace and harmony.
  • You can also enjoying well prepared vegetarian meals with friends and family. Besides ordering from the menu, you can also request a Dinner Banquet (for 6 or more people) for any special occasion. To reserve your banquet table, please call or email to inquire about the cuisine and dates available.
  • Venerable Master Hsing Yun said that “Well prepared vegetarian cuisine not only taste delicious, but also inspire joy and appreciation.”

Positive growth.

Nature, in the common sense, refers to essences unchanged by man; space, the air, the river, the leaf. Art is applied to the mixture of his will with the same things, as in a house, a canal, a statue, a picture. But his operations taken together are so insignificant, a little chipping, baking, patching, and washing, that in an impression so grand as that of the world on the human mind, they do not vary the result.

The sun setting through a dense forest.

Wind turbines standing on a grassy plain, against a blue sky.

The sun shining over a ridge leading down into the shore. In the distance, a car drives down a road.

Undoubtedly we have no questions to ask which are unanswerable. We must trust the perfection of the creation so far, as to believe that whatever curiosity the order of things has awakened in our minds, the order of things can satisfy. Every man’s condition is a solution in hieroglyphic to those inquiries he would put.
