Upon ascending this role, Ven. Dr. Hui Dong of University of the West will be appointed the new abbot of Hsi Lai Temple.

Venerable Hui Chi was born in 1964. He arrived at FGS in 1986 and received the full precepts at the triple platform ordination at Hsi Lai Temple in 1988. In 2004 he was appointed abbot of Hsi Lai Temple. In 2012 he was elected chairman of the FGS Religious Affairs Committee, and in 2013 he became the 9th term abbot of Fo Guang Shan.

There will also be five Vice Abbots:
Ven. Hui Chuan, presently Chairman of FGS Domestic Supervisory Council
Ven. Hui Lun, former Managing Director of Anle Vihara in Taitung
Ven. Hui Kai, presently the Vice Chancellor of Nanhua University
Ven. Hui Chao, presently FGS Cultivation Center director

Congratulations Venerable!

Could this be a first for a foreigner holding an important official position in a Taiwanese monastic order?
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

I wish having the kind of background Ven. Huifeng has in his spirituality were more the rule than the exception in the discourse of those who guide others in their spirituality. I looked up Fo Guang Shan on the Wiki and that reaffirmed my wish there were room in public discourse for the official voice of more than the Top Three voices of spirituality, and those all Abrahamic, ("Fear ye Canaan!"), with Tenzin Gyatso allowed to bicycle along after the big floats, just ahead of the people with brooms sweeping up the fertilizer.

Congratulations Ven. Huifeng!!! :twothumbsup:

But all these years of study and practice, and all they can do is put you in charge of vice? :smile:

Seriously, is is a big deal for you to be recognized by the Chinese for your Dharma and academic accomplishments.

We are most fortunate to have you on DW.

Best wishes for you with your new responsibilities,

Congratulations, Ven. Huifeng!
:bow:
Your path to this position seems stranger than most but that, IMHO, is a very good thing: every organisation needs the renewal provided by people of different backgrounds.

Congrats venerable!
If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true of false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.
