Question: Why do we need to come to Kaimyo-in so often?
问:为什么我们需要经常来开妙院?

One of the important purposes of our practice is to attain Buddhahood in order to establish an unshakable high life condition which will enable us to attain true happiness. It is indispensable for us to come close to the Buddha’s life in order to attain Buddhahood.

The Buddha’s life exist in the ultimate object of worship, the Dai-Gohonzon, at the Head Temple in Japan. Thus to come to Kaimyo-in is a way to approach the Buddha’s life because in Singapore, the Kaimyo-in is the nearest place to the Dai-Gohonzon as the wooden Joju Gohonzon which is established for all Singapore people is enshrined here.

答:我们修行是为了要成佛,从而拥有稳定的生命境涯,得到真正的幸福。如果要成佛,就一定要紧紧依偎着佛的生命。佛的生命存在于最崇高的本尊,也就是位于日本,大石寺里的大御本尊。在新加坡,开妙院是离大御本尊最近的地方,因为为了所有新加坡人而安奉的板的常驻御本尊就在开妙院。因此,来开妙院能让我们更接近佛的生命。
