Chinese New Year Festival of Light and Peace

Also known as the Spring Festival, it is one of the three major festivities and most emphasized in Chinese culture. Since 1980, Fo Guang Shan has held the New Year Festival of Light and Peace worldwide.

While maintaining traditional Chinese New Year Buddhist activities such as sounding the bell of peace, sutra transcription and prayers, Thousand-Buddha Prayer Service, and Light Offering Dharma Services, dynamic and interactive exhibits are also presented to offer a joyful, heartwarming, and happy atmosphere to the visitors. Through lighting up the lamp of compassion and wisdom in people’s hearts, it is hoped that darkness will be dispelled, brightness will illuminate, and peace, beauty, and virtue will be spread (FGS:Our Report 2014).
