Yun Hwa Sangha

Dear Sangha member,

We want to share with you a very important development that has been taking place in our Monastery. Supreme Matriarch Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim has chosen the location of the Buddha statue for the Buddha Project, and the ground preparations have now begun. The statue of the sitting Buddha will be called the Wisdom and Prosperity Buddha and will rise to a height of 100 feet (30.5meters). By helping to eliminate poverty and bring wisdom to this globe, the Wisdom and Prosperity Buddha will bring about world peace and protect the entire world. Supreme Matriarch Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim explained that this world needs the energy of wisdom and prosperity to overcome the problematic situations that cause so much discomfort to people around the globe. Supreme Matriarch Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim is a world peace worker and everything that Dae Poep Sa Nim does is for that purpose. That is why this Wisdom and Prosperity Buddha will help to change the energy of the entire world in a very positive way, making it possible for everyone to live in peace together.

Dae Poep Sa Nim explained that energy-wise (feng shui wise), the Big Island and in particular the Mauna Kea Mountain, is the most important energy point of this globe. Therefore, it is the perfect location for erecting the Wisdom and Prosperity Buddha to protect not only our globe but also to maintain the correct universal balance. The Big Island not only has the world's longest continuously erupting volcano. It is also home to the Mauna Kea Mountain which, from its base to its peak, is the tallest mountain in the world. In addition, the Big Island’s position in the middle of the Pacific Ocean makes it, for energy reasons, uniquely situated for this project, especially since our planet is constituted of about 71% water and 29% land. This very special location on the earth is one of the reasons why astronomers have put some of the largest telescopes on the globe at the summit of Mauna Kea.

Scientists describe how our planet is directly affected by the sun and the other planets of our solar system, as well as meteors, comets and further celestial bodies. These scientists are concerned and worried about many potential dangers to our globe from these planets, comets or meteors that could eventually come into a collision course with our planet. A good illustration of that is a comet which passes closely by the earth, leaving behind dust or particles from that comet which affect our globe as a whole, sometimes even bringing diseases and affecting the DNA of living organisms on earth. Dae Poep Sa Nim understands the concerns and worries which such a scenario can generate. However, building this Wisdom and Prosperity Buddha will help to shield our planet from such potential danger and catastrophes, thus creating a universal balance.

Dae Poep Sa Nim teaches that prosperity comes from virtue and virtue, in turn, originates in wisdom and action. That is why Dae Poep Sa Nim decided to erect here in the Lotus Buddhist Monastery, this one hundred foot tall statue of a magnificent, peaceful and powerful sitting Buddha which will emanate wisdom and prosperity from the middle of the Pacific Ocean to reach the entire globe and beyond. As Dae Poep Sa Nim stated in the Daily Sutra of April 5 (#8335), "Buddha’s good and prosperity energy will benefit everyone, bringing much prosperity. This is like being in a network. For as you know, even a small source of energy benefits all others on the same circuit. This Buddha will benefit and bring peace to the mind, eliminating all ignorance in order that we become wiser."

Dae Poep Sa Nim is working endlessly to bring peace to this world. As Dae Poep Sa Nim's students, we are deeply grateful that Dae Poep Sa Nim is erecting the Wisdom and Prosperity Buddha for the benefit of every living being and the entire universe. Thank you so very much, Dae Poep Sa Nim, for Dae Poep Sa Nim’s boundless love, care and great compassion for us all.
