A Few Years ago, Venerable Hui Xian, Who was then the Abbot of Fo Gaung Shan Malayisa , was assigned t new Delhi India establish the shan Malasysia, was assigned to new Delhi India t establish the Delhi Fo Gaung Shan Cultural And Education Centre in Order to Cultivate the seeds of Bodhi there. He was also tasked to set up a Sramanera School to recruit and children and teenagers who are descendents of the Sakya clan, and eventually administer the Sramanera precepts and conduct the tonsure ceremony for them.

These Children and teenagers who are descendents of the Sakya clan do not know Chinese at all and have no idea what Buddhism or in particular Mahayana Buddhism, is about. In Order to realise Master Hsing Yun’s mission, Venerable Hui Xian has to teach these Sramaners very diligently. to teach, he was to be harsh and yet well meaning at heart , be firm or accommodating , reward or disciple the Sramaners.

As Venerable Hui Xian will be Publishing the Sramaneras’ diary into a book , I am most happy to contribute to this foreward.

It is hoped that by educating young boys, imparting to them he doctrine of Humanistic Buddhism , nurturing and developing their skills and talents, that they will one day propagate Buddhism widely sot that the Buddha’s Wisdom will be everlasting.

The Sramneras at the sramanera School have to undergo strict training. They have to learn not only the Buddhism as a monk, the Sramaneras must have good linguistic skill . Hence , they have to learn Chinese, English , Pali and Hindi as part of their essentials linguistic training.

Other than formal schooling , the Sramaneras have to learn and practices yoga , Taiji, Chinese martial arts an others skills. As such, they train continuously , starting from the moment they wake up it their sleeping time . As Fo Gaung shan is a training centre for the cultivation of Bodhisattva Fo Gaung members have to practise diligently to bring benefit and happiness to others . The Sramaneras therefore have to be good and performs who are able to sing, know sign language, perform traditional Indian instruments and Chinese ion dance. Such is the extent of their training programme.

These Young sramaneras, who have to learnt Chinese diligently , Cultivate morality , Sramaneras, who have to learnt Chinese diligently cultivate morality , concentration and wisdom, and eradicate thoughts of greed , hatred and delusion, have to undertake this path to monkhood . In Order not to Waste each precious day, the Sramaneras are encouraged to pen down their thoughts on their daily cultivation as an offering to the Triple Gem. Fifteen Sramaneras’ writings are selected to be published in this Sramanera Diary , Which serves to record their journey of cultivation.

As we see these Sramaneras grow up , we can also observe how they practise diligently from what is written in the Sramanera Diary. We wish that their Bodhi Aspiration will grow up and strengthen further. We hope that they will return to India to once again propagate and revive the profound teachings Sakyamuni Buddha there.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
