On November 22nd and 24th, 66 students from Christchurch Christ’s College, the oldest private boys’ high school in New Zealand, visited Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple Christchurch to experience Humanistic Buddhism. 

They were led by the College’s Chaplain, Reverend Cameron Pickering, who has already arranged multiple such visits.

On arrival, the teachers and students were guided by BLIA South Island Committee Kokwei Low on a Temple Tour. Afterwards, Venerable Nengchang shared the story about Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s One Stroke Calligraphy and guided them to experience the beauty of Chinese calligraphy.

Following this, they watched the video of The Life of the Buddha and learned about the values of Three Act of Goodness and the Four Givings. The students also gained insight into the Buddhist concept of Dependent Origination, which Kokwei Low illustrated by comparing it to a seed’s dependence sunlight and rain, a comparison that deeply resonated with the students.

Teacher Charlotte expressed her gratitude for the chance to join this educational trip and praised the Temple for its facilities and inspiring educational approach. Teacher Kate, impressed by the Temple’s environment, expressed a wish to revisit with her family. Before leaving, the students thanked the Temple staff with a lotus hand gesture. Reverend Cameron Pickering also expressed his gratitude to the Temple for providing a tranquil learning environment, and for broadening the students’ horizons so that they may become a useful person and contribute back to society in the future.
