History of Tham Wah Wan Temple
(Than Hsiang KL & SDE)
昙华苑

Tham Wah Wan Temple (Than Hsiang KL & SDE) was co-founded by the four late Dharma brothers “Xu Yue Zhi”, “Cai Hong Qing”, “Koh Ben Ming” and “Wu Yi Hua”. The temple was built by Master “Ping Xian”, together with Dharma brothers “Wong Pin Zheng” and “Teoh Pu Liang”.

昙华苑的创建人是由已故许悦治护法居士,已故蔡宏清护法居士,已故柯本明护法居士,已故吴一花护法居士而协建人则是品献法师,黄品正护法居士和张埔娘护法居士。

In August 1993, Venerable Master Wei Wu was on a Buddhist propagation mission road show to “Fo Zhong” on a theme “Rediscover the Love that is Lost”. During the Dharma talk, Master Wei Wu proves his compassion in action by making a commitment to establish a series of welfare activities which are to be promoted in Kuala Lumpur for the people who requested for it.

在西元1993年8月,唯悟法师来到马佛总巡回弘法会,主题为“把爱心找回来”。在弘法会上,师父慈悲的精神落实在行动上,决定于雪隆一带推广福利工作,让这儿有需要帮助的人,感受到人间处处有温情。

The very next day, a group of Buddhist fellowship journeyed to the Thang Siang Foundation for a meeting with Ven Wei Wu. They immediately establish a committee comprising a group of 9 members. It was led by the Penang Welfare team leader, Dharma sister “Mei Er”. After a series of discussions and brainstorming the committee formulated a programme which was to be started as welfare activities in Kuala Lumpur.

在师父的一番开示之后,隔天就有一班佛友去参与檀香基金会的会议,以了解详情,并立刻成立了9人小组。当时还是由槟城福利组组长的美娥师兄指导下,了解个案的处理方法,并且开始了吉隆坡的福利活动。

In the beginning when the welfare programmes were in the stage of planning, several Buddhist members and Dharma brother “Xu Yue Zhi” established a friendship with Venerable Master Wei Wu . Buddhist members felt grateful to the Venerable for lending the premises to them. In return the Buddhist members contributed their effort to organise other activities at the Tham Wah Wan Temple. Under leadership of the capable Venerable Zhen Xin they started cleaning up the temple and maintaining the compound.

在开始筹备福利工作的当而,由借用场地的缘起,众佛友和当时昙华苑的其中一位创建人之一许悦治居士,建立了友好的关系。众佛友因感恩许悦治居士慈悲借用场地,并回馈了他们的服务给昙华苑。例如,众佛友(由真信法师的带领〕帮忙清理寺庙等工作。

The positive contribution shown by the Buddhists members and the adherence to the philosophy and conviction of the Than Hsiang Foundation the temple activities increases. The responsibilities of the temple was shouldered by Venerable Master Wei Wu. On the 2nd. of September, 1997, an official opening ceremony was held. After this ceremony a series of activities were organised. All the activities were based on the four principles of Than Hsiang Foundation called the Than Hsiang Conviction, that is for “The young to learn, the strong and healthy to serve, the aged and sick to be cared for and the departed to find spiritual destination”. Welfare activities got a strong foot hold in the community. Activities such as volunteering to help at old folks homes, free "hotline" telephone counselling and consultation on welfare, organised Dharma talks, youth Buddhist camps, training for Buddhist volunteers and English and Chinses Dharma classes were organised on a regular basis.

由于这一班佛友义工的积极和努力,加上许老居士也认同檀香基金会的理念。最终决定把寺院委托于释唯悟法师。 1997 年 9 月 21 日是释唯悟法师的晋山大典。法师晋山之后,一系列的活动更陆续而来。这一系列的活动都是朝着檀香基金会的四大宗旨进行。秉持“少有所学,壮有所用,老有所依,终有所归”的理念,福利工作便渐渐茁壮成长。此福利工作包括了探访修行户,服务老人院及关心老菩萨的起居生活,提供爱心线电话辅导,举办讲座会,筹办青少年生活营,培训义工,中英佛学班及共修等。

These activities establishes loving kindness in the community and opportunity for fellow Buddhist to practice the Buddha’s teachings and thus reaping the merits of cultivating wisdom and virtues.

以上的福利活动不只让受惠者感受到人间的温暖,更提供机会于佛友义工们去实践佛陀的教诲以达到修福又修慧的菩萨道。
