20th Anniversary of Quang Duc Monastery



You're holding, in your hands, the book recording the activities leading to the 20th Anniversary of Quang Duc Monastery. This book was not launched immediately after the celebration of the 20th Anniversary, due to many Dharma task commitments. However, we are very happy to officially launch it today - on the occasion of the 15th Winter Retreat, for All Sangha of the Unified Vietnamese Buddhist Congregation in Australia and New Zealand, to be held in Quang Duc Monastery from 1st to 11th July, 2014.

This book is offered as a sincere and humble gift to the Monks, Nuns, benefactors and friends, near and far. This book will also be distributed free to the National Library of Australia in Canberra and all public libraries across Australia as a humble gift from the Quang Duc Monastery to the Australian and Vietnamese community.

Twenty years is a long period in a human life, especially for Buddhist followers, rushing to escape from Samsara, the circle of birth and death, no time to waste on the journey to, or from, our spiritual home. Twenty years have passed, our first generation had to suffer and make sacrifices to build infrastructure and to build a solid foundation for the next generation of Vietnamese in Australia. Thus, in the last twenty years, in the process of preserving and protecting the Dharma lights here, we are sure that we couldn’t avoid having some misunderstandings with others - the sorrow and suffering. Due to the future and developing of Buddha-Dharma, we ask that you please be tolerant and compassionate with us for any inconvenience we may have caused.

The Editorial Board, we would like to sincerely thank the Most Venerable Monks, Nuns, the Australian Federal, State & Local governments, as well as other organizations, which sent us letters of congratulations on the occasion of the 20th Birthday of Quang Duc Monastery. All letters are published in this book, in addition to much poetry, literature and song lyrics ... to praise the virtues of the Buddhists of Quang Duc Monastery as part of its efforts to spread the Dharma in this southern land, Australia.

Please put your hands together and pray for the Vietnamese Buddhism in Australia, as day by day it grows stronger, to carry the light of wisdom and enlightenment to everyone and every home.

Brief History of Buddhism , by Andrew Williams, The History of Buddhism spans from the 6th century BCE to the present; it arose in the eastern part of Ancient India, in and around the ancient Kingdom of Magadha (now in Bihar, India), and is based on the teachings of the unsurpassed supremely enlightened Shakyamuni Buddha (also Gautama Buddha), (Born as Prince Siddhārtha Gautama). This makes it one of the oldest religions practiced today. Buddhism evolved as it spread from the northeastern region of the Indian subcontinent through Central, East, and Southeast Asia. At one time or another, it has influenced most of the Asian continent.

Buddhism in America Before Columbus, Hui Shen was a Buddhist monk and missionary who lived during the latter half of the 5th Century AD to the early part of the 6th Century. From all indications he was born somewhere within the landlocked area adjacent to China which now days would be considered Afghanistan. Although not much is known of his early years it is known that he dedicated his life to Buddhism and spreading the word of Buddhism far and wide --- most notedly to America, known as Fu Sang in Chinese.

In India in the 6th century BC, Sakyamuni, "a wise man of the Sakya tribe", had been meditating under a tree when, suddenly, he was struck with the comprehension of all things. He became Buddha, meaning the « Illuminated ». His message, based on a pragmatic philosophy, taught how to free oneself from all needs in order to achieve illumination. After the death of the Enlightened One, his disciples – a few monks – began to spread his teachings all over India, from Ceylon to the Himalayan. Fearing man’s penc

Unlike most other NESB or CALD communities, the Vietnamese came to Australia in large numbers within a rather short period of time when the host multicultural society was still in its infancy. Their presence as an Asian visible minority was really a test to the strength of Australia’s political leadership and tolerance of the population at large. Initially without any intra structure of support, Vietnamese Australians learned to adapt themselves to the new social and cultural environment to become a vibrant community with tangible and intangible contributions to Australia. In future growth however, Vietnamese Australians appear to face a challenge as today’s new settlers from Vietnam bear little commonality in life experience and outlook with the essentially Vietnamese refugee community of the past few decades.
