MOST RECENT

A beautiful Buddhist temple and monastery (with a very long name) far away from the usual tourist trail. I had this place all to myself and it was beautiful!

#VenerableHongChoon was instrumental in shaping Singapore's Buddhism scene, particularly in the #MahayanaBuddhism. He became the second Abbot of #kongmengsanphorkarkseemonastery in 1943 and helm the abbotship for more than 4 decades. Under his leadership, #KMSPKS transformed from 2 shrine halls into a #monastic facility. He initiated the Great Compassion Prayer on the 27th of every lunar month and propagated the Dharma widely.

His contributions, beyond KMSPKS, includes holding the key appointment in #SingaporeBuddhistFederation and several other Buddhist temples in Singapore. The Thai King, Bhumibol Adulyadej, conferred him the title of Highest Monk, Phra Ajancin Bodhi Sangvara Sinhanakom Kanachan in 1987.

Venerable passed away on 25 December 1990. As a remembrance for his great compassion and wisdom, a relic stupa and a memorial hall has been constructed in the monastery. (Credit: wikipedia)

Trivial info: The Great Compassion Prayer is held on every 27th instead of 15th so that devotees get more opportunities for their devotional prayer practises.
