The Chu Un Buddhist Temple was set up in 1988 through the endeavors of Paterno and Rosita Luym. The sanctuary was worked in memory of the mother of Paterno, who was a sincere Buddhist. The couple ventured out to Kaoshiung, Taiwan to look for help from the monastics of Fo Guang Shan to run the sanctuary in Cebu.
Finding Inner Peace At The Chu Un Buddhist Temple
This was encouraged by Mrs. Xia Su Ying, a great companion of the couple living in Taiwan. Fo Guang Shan is a universal Chinese Buddhist religious development situated in Taiwan.
The exacting significance of the name Fo Guang Shan is "Buddha's Light Mountain." On the other hand, Chu Un basically implies appreciation and sympathy. At the point when the sanctuary was finished on September 1, 1990, the late Head Abbot Venerable Hsin Peng alongside certain devotees played out a decontamination service of the sanctum.
