筹建教育慈善大厦及筹募基金

Print PDF

大马佛总为全国性的佛教组织,创立于1959年4月19日,旨在发扬佛教教义,推行佛教弘法、教育、慈善、青年活动及社会福利事业。自从佛总大夏于1971 年建竣以来,随著会务的推展,原有建筑物已不敷应用,加上佛总属下周日义学园与正化幼稚国,迄今仍借用寺院场所教学,发展受到局限;马来西亚佛学院院所狭 窄,教室与宿舍不足,设备尚有待改善,赠医施药及针灸部也挤在旧建筑物后部一隅之地,对逐年增加得病黎已拥挤不堪。

为配合会务发展,以及社 会之需求,大马佛总计划兴建教育慈善大厦,筹措教育基金,以加强佛教教育、培育人才、弘扬佛法,以及扩大赠医施药服务。在这个娑婆世界里,人类不能免於生 老病死痛苦;人与人之间的妒嫉、嗔恨、斗争、天灾人祸的灾害,致使人们限於苦难中。佛陀为度众生,提倡教化,开导愚知,悲心拔苦,同登乐土。大马佛总秉承 佛陀的教悔,创办马来西亚佛学院,开设佛教函授班、成人佛学班、黄昏教育班、高初级普通科补习班、电脑班与科技班,以及幼稚园,而为佛教寺院庵堂佛教团体 栽培佛教人才,续佛慧命,造福人群。

佛总在柔佛新山承办隆华老人院,收容二百令名贫老与残障者,每年费用约五十万元,此外,更配合大马肾脏病护理协会,为病黎提供协助,同时,经常拨款协助贫 困家庭并对无能力处理善後事务者,给予家庭救济,或施棺作佛事:访问与资助慈善团体,也是我们的工作。为了协助贫老病黎,佛总每年开支逾二十万元,开设赠 医施药所,免费提供医药服务,同时,输血团与援助团,也为那些急救及等待治疗的贫困人士而设。 为了更积极推行上述工作,较大的硬体建设,以及稳定基金的筹措,乃当前急务,因此,有必要仰仗各地佛教团体与信众以及社会热心人士全力支持,方克有济。我 们衷诚吁请各佛教国体、寺院庵堂、诸山大德、十方善信不分宗派与门户,共同发挥佛教教徒的同体大悲精神,凝集大家的力量,为我佛教大发慈悲,则佛教幸甚, 四众幸甚!

我们也恳请善长仁翁,同发胜心,概捐善款,聚沙成塔,集腋成裘,赖众而易举,般若良因,善植于今朝,菩提妙果,同期于来世。
 
 

THE RATIONALE FOR RAISING BUILDING FUNDS FOR PROPOSED WISMA EDUCATION & CHARITY (E&C) AND E&C FUNDS FOR MBA

Established on 19 April 1959, Malaysian Buddhist Association (MBA) is a nation-wide Buddhist organization. Its main objectives include promoting Buddhism, education, charity, youth activities, social welfare activities and the spreading of Dharma.
MBA's current premises was built in 1971. As a result of flourishing activities over the years, MBA and its ancillary bodies are faced with floor space constraint which hinders their development and growth. Cheng Hua Kindergarten (CHK) and Sunday School for Children (SSC) are temporarily housed at other monastery. Classrooms and hostels for Malaysian Buddhist Institute (MBI) are lacking and the facilities need improvement. Buddhist Free Clinic with Acupuncture Unit (MFC) is squeezed in a corner at the back of the building, thus making it difficult to cope with the increasing number of patients.
In line with our expansion and society's needs, MBA is planning to build a 15-storeyed new building and to raise the building and E&C funds in order to boost Buddhist education, to groom upcoming generations, to spread Dharma and to expand MFC.
In this Saha world, human beings are not able to refrain from the suffering of birth, old age, sickness and death. Jealousy, hatred, rebellion, natural disasters have brought about sufferings to mankind. To save all living beings, Buddha has propagated his teaching, such as to extinguish greed, anger and delusion, and to be reborn in the Pure Land. MBA aspires to continue with the great mission of the Buddha. Besides setting up MBI, CHK & SSC, MBA provides correspondence courses in Buddhism, Buddhism courses for adults, evening & tuition classes and computer & IT classes. By doing so, MBA nurtures new generations for Buddhist organisations and this in turn will benefit the society at large.
In Johor Baru, MBA operates Long Hua Home (LHH), which houses a population of about 200 old folks and handicapped persons. LHH's annual operating cost is estimated at RM500,000.
MBA works closely with the Malaysian Renal Care Association which provides nursing care to kidney patients. Free medical services, via MFC and Blood Donation & First Aid teams have also been set up. MBA pays about RM200,000 annually in aid of the poor and elderly patients. It sponsors funeral related expenses, performs rites for the dead and helps the bereaved family members. MBA also conducts frequent visits and extends financial assistance to charitable organisations.
To carry out the above tasks more positively and effectively, better facilities coupled with a stable source of funds are our immediate priorities. In view of these, we sincerely appeal to all Buddhist organisations and devotees, irrespective of sects, to be strongly united, to extend loving kindness and compassion and contribute generously to this fund raising exercise. We also wish to appeal to all philanthropists to contribute generously towards this meritorious deed.
May you be well and happy. May Buddhism prosper and all sentient beings soon reap the wonderful Bodhi fruit.
