Why make Offering?
Making shrine offering is an act of devotion which expresses appreciation and veneration to the Triple Gem.
The offering of flower represents the aspiration to achieve the body of the Buddha with the thirty-two marks and the teaching of impermanence.


Why make offering to the Buddha on the Fifteenth and Last Day of the Lunar Month?
Bhikshus (monks) and Bhikshunis (nuns) recite the Precepts twice a month, on the fifteenth day and the last day of the lunar month. Lay disciples are encouraged to follow suit to protect and maintain right mindfulness, uphold the Precepts and vow to attain Buddhahood. Hence, it is an auspicious day to make offering to the Buddha to express our gratitude to the Triple Gems.


Hall of Ambrosia Precepts / Vairocana Buddha
The Hall of Ambrosia Precepts is where Bhikshus (monks) and Bhikshunis (nuns) receive their precepts. As the precepts are like ambrosia that satiates one’s hunger and thirst, the hall is thus named the Hall of Ambrosia Precepts. The diligent observance of precepts helps one to purify one’s bodily and verbal karma and lays the foundation for the development of a tranquil and peaceful mind. This in turn enables one to cultivate wisdom, which liberates one from Samsara.
This hall is fronted by Vairocana Buddha who represents the Dharma Body of Shakyamuni Buddha. His splendid appearance is the result of cultivating boundless merits, virtues and wisdom over an immeasurable amount of time, culminating in enlightenment. Seated on a giant lotus flower, Vairocana Buddha is surrounded by four great Bodhisattvas namely: Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, Manjushri Bodhisattva, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva and Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, representing Great Compassion, Great Wisdom, Great Vow and Great Practice respectively. The eight fierce-looking Vajrakumaras guarding each corner of the octagon platform symbolising the Noble Eightfold Path, remind us to walk the path with strength and diligence. These Dharma protectors are wrathful towards the de­filements entrapping all sentient beings. On the walls and ceilings are exquisite depictions of heavenly beings offering alms, music and precious items to the Buddha out of respect and devotion.
甘露戒堂 / 卢舍那佛
甘露戒堂是比丘(出家男众)、比丘尼(出家女众)受戒的地方。戒律是引导道德行为的基本准绳。 因戒律犹如让人解饥止渴的甘露,故称为“甘露戒堂”。 精进持戒有助于净化个人的身、口业,并为培养一颗平静、安详的心打下基础,从而让人增长智慧,使之能从生死轮回中获得解脱。
此堂前方供奉的是一尊端坐在千叶莲花上的卢舍那佛。 卢舍那佛是释迦牟尼佛的报身,即报身佛。(所谓“报身”,指的是证得了绝对真理,获得佛果而显示佛智的佛身)。卢舍那佛的庄严相是历经无量劫的长久修行大圆满、大彻大悟,终证正果所得的果报。卢舍那佛端坐于盛大的莲花座中,被四大菩萨围绕着,分别是:观世音菩萨(代表大悲)、文殊菩萨(代表大智)、金刚手菩萨(代表大坚固)及普贤菩萨(代表大行)。八角形的莲台代表八正道(即离苦得乐之道,分别为:正见,正思维,正语,正业,正命,正精进,正念,正定),由八尊威严的护法金刚镇守,以勉励众生精进学佛、身心力行。护法金刚怒斥所有让众生陷入恶道的杂染。堂上的墙壁和天花板刻画着优美高雅的天人供养各种供品、音乐及珍贵礼品,以向佛陀致敬。
