Sangha and Laity Training Program

僧伽居士訓練班

The Sangha and Laity Training Programs was founded by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua in 1982. These programs were designed specifically to train Sangha members and laypeople interested in working for Buddhist groups. It is also a means of raising the quality of the Sangha and developing talented Buddhists who value both doctrine and application, thereby perpetuating the Proper Dharma and the wisdom of the Buddhas.

宣公上人於一九八二年創辦⎡僧伽居士訓練班⎦,專為培養欲從事佛教事業之僧侶及居士而設;也為提高僧眾素質,造就行解並重之佛教專才,令正法久住,以續佛慧命。

Besides studying the three major types of Buddhist teaching (Sutras, Vinaya, and Shastras), the curriculum also places special emphasising on living a life of purity in a monastic setting.

課程除學習佛教三大教理--經、律、論,特別注重躬行實踐清靜的道場生活。
