Hsi Lai Temple 29048811ai2
The temple is affiliated with one of Taiwan's largest religious organizations, the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist order. It is one of the first branch temples the order has built, and is often called the "torch of Dharma" by order members. Hsi Lai was the site of the founding of Buddha's Light International Association, which was established in 1991.
The order also calls itself the International Buddhist Progress Society.
Hsi Lai Temple 1aadd7
The temple, like its mother temple in Taiwan, practices Humanistic Buddhism, which incorporates all of the eight traditional schools of Chinese Buddhism - especially the Linji Chan and Pure Land schools - to provide guidance deemed most useful to modern life.

Hsi Lai Temple 29234478zn7
In 1976, Master Hsing Yun, the founder of the order, represented a Buddhist group from Taiwan to participate in America's bicentennial celebration. Master Hsing Yun was asked by American friends to build a monastery in the United States. Therefore, Fo Guang Shan asked the Venerable Tzu Chuang (who, upon the inception of the temple, became the founding and first abbess of Hsi Lai Temple) and Yi Heng to plan and organize the construction of the temple in the Greater Los Angeles area. It was officially registered under the name of International Buddhist Progress Society.

Hsi Lai Temple 1aaacaa

The vows of Guang Shih Yin P'u Sa are indeed profound. With her heart of compassion and her power of wisdom, she avails herself to the prayers of sentient beings. Regardless of where we are, she never fails in granting thousands of calls for help and manifests herself in appropriate forms. She teaches and enlightens sentient beings accordingly, thereby ridding them of their worries and sufferings of Samsara (the cycle of birth and death). Like the ferry that rescues afflicted beings to the other shore, this sanctuary of Guang Shih Yin P'u Sa has become known as the Salvation Paradise.
