Fo Guang Shan’s recognition of the value of culture can be seen through its support of the visual arts. Fo Guang Yuan art galleries can be found in different FGS temples worldwide to follow Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s idea of promoting Humanistic Buddhism through art. It is the Venerable Master’s hope that through the different exhibitions, people will develop an appreciation of both traditional and contemporary forms of arts and be able to reflect on the virtues and profundity of life.
The Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery at FGS Mabuhay Temple is located at the building’s 3rd floor. It has served as a venue for different art exhibitions including Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s One Stroke Calligraphy exhibit in 2012.
