Venerable Master Hsing Yun is the founder of the Foguangshan Buddhist order (originated from Taiwan.). His Dharma name, Hsing Yun, means 'star cloud' whilst foguangshan means “Buddha's Light Mountain”. After enduring poverty and oppression during World War II, he devoted his life to revitalising Buddhism so that it belongs to people – not just reclusive monastic orders.

Venerable Master Hsing Yun is an energetic and dynamic person from humble beginings, within his own lifetime he has developed a global organisation – the Buddha's Light Internatioanl Association (BLIA) that has libraries, temples and free health clinics around the world in over 200 locations. He is recognised as a world Buddhist leader alongside peers like the Dali Lama.
