修建寺院.安僧度眾

佛寶寺目前正在進行整修工程,已於2020年9月正式開工,預計在2021年完工。屆時將為讓大西雅圖地區忙碌的現代人,提供一處參禪學佛、紓解壓力、轉化煩惱、安頓身心的完善環境。更進一步覺照生命真義,找到自己本具的佛性,開創圓滿光明的人生。  

廣度有情.自利利他

法華經云:

「若人發心起塔、建寺、造像,

如是諸人等,如見無數佛。

自成無上道, 

廣度無數眾。」

現有建築

現有建築為1950年代的舊教堂,占地約97,000平方英呎,室內約25,000平方英呎。

護持三寶・圓滿福慧

以恭敬心布施供養,建設道場;護持三寶,弘揚佛法;助人親近三寶,了達真理,解脫煩惱,圓滿福慧,這樣的發心,勝過世間的一切物質享受。

Make the World a Better Place

整修內容

The renovation includes various spaces such as main lobby, meditation hall, lecture hall, dining hall, conference room, library, children’s room, etc., and entails optimization of all hardware to meet the current  functional needs and code requirements, such as high ceilings, comprehensive upgrades of mechanical, plumbing and electrical system and equipment, barrier-free facilities, addition of a new elevator and new landscaping, etc.  Our goal is to transform the existing church space into an environment suitable for meditation and the study of Buddhism. In order to give back to the community, Buddha Jewel also actively cooperates with the Shoreline City government on the street improvement as well as environmental conservation in line with altruistic principle supported by Dharma teaching, “benefit self also benefit others”. 

正法久住・淨化人心

《分別善惡報應經》云:「修建寺院、殿堂、樓閣供佛及僧,功德最為殊勝。」修建道場是無上大福田,祈願大眾把握殊勝因緣,發恭敬心、清淨心、菩提心護持三寶,使正法久住,淨化人心,促進社會祥和,功德無量。護持道場功德無量,殷望大眾把握因緣,出錢出力,共同成就此一歷史性的功德。

布施,能夠去除自己的慳貪、瞋恚,消業障、增福慧,對方得到我們的幫助,能夠度過困難,乃至得以聽聞佛法、去除煩惱。所以,布施法門既能自利、又能利他、又能莊嚴菩提之道。
