Namo amitabha!

On Friday night, Chun Nee, Cheng Ghee and I went to a very virtuous place, which is monastery. The purpose of the visit was not for praying or anything. Just got to know from Cheng Ghee that the monastery was nicely decorated for the past Chinese New Year celebration. The purpose of the visit was to have some snapshots. The monastery is called Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zen Monastery is located at Jenjarom, near Banting, Selangor. It was about 30-45 minutes drive from Bukit Tinggi, Klang. Before reaching there, my mind was still thinking that the monastery is not much difference with any other monasteries that I went before, either in Malaysia, Singapore of Australia. Upon reaching there, I could see the lights that were decorated on the roof. By just looking at the lights, I could imagined how big the monastery is. Chun Nee and I were really mesmerized. Both of us were huge! Ok, to be honest, I never put any high hope before I went there. So, I was really fascinated by this monastery. Thought this kind of monastery can only be found in China. Two thumbs up for this FGS Dong Zen. Here are some of the pictures that we managed to take. No much time for us to walk around as it is closed at 10.00pm and we only arrived there at around 9.15pm.

One of the building which is decorated with all the tang lungs.

The moving Buddha. These Buddhas will run on the rail and stop at certain point. See the kuan yin on the left? The kuan yin will sprinkle "holy" water to the crowds.

The wishing candles. It is said that these candles will bring harmony to the family and it is also said that if you often lit these candles, it is believed that your eyes will look very nice.

Hoping that my family will live peacefully.

The lotus shaped candle that I lit.

Tang lungs, tang lungs and tang's just everywhere.

The big Buddha at the back.

The big Buddha again.
