啟發學生本有的良知良能
Activating Students' Inherent Wisdom and Ability

一九九四年萬佛聖城暑期夏令營於七月五日至十五日舉行。七十多位男、女學員分別來自臺灣、加拿大、馬來西亞、中國大陸及美國本地。「辦好的教育」一直是宣公上人的最大心願。上人要辦的不是一般的教育,只教學生課本上的知識和謀生的學識而已,而是要教導學生明白做人處事的根本,及如何運用在日常禮節中,以啟發學生本有的良知良能,進而守禮守節,長大後成為社會國家有用的棟樑。

負責男校夏令營的顏校長表示,今年有許多學生家長早先就為小孩報了名,希望送他們到萬佛聖城,接受佛法的薰陶,體驗聖城的生活,見習佛教徒上殿過堂等禮節,練習靜坐,結交朋友。由於事先周詳計劃,男校所推出的一系列活動,贏得學員們一致喜愛。

據主辦這次女校夏令營的負責法師表示:今年的特色是以介紹基礎佛學為主,配合多元化的趣味課程,以發展學員的主觀智能推動力。

在萬佛聖城清靜優美的環境裡,兩週的活動於緊湊歡樂中迅速地度過,學員們滿懷感謝,相期明年再見!更有幾位決定申請入學,常住學習。許多家長希望校方明年能更早公佈活動消息,以便他們及早安排確定參加。

The 1994 Summer Program was held from July 5th to the 15th at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. Over seventy boys and girls from Taiwan, Canada, Malaysia, China and the United States participated. It has always been the wish of the Venerable Master to promote sound education. The Master's idea of education isn't an ordinary education, which only teaches students knowledge from textbooks or skills for making a living; rather, he wants students to understand the fundamental principles of being a person and managing business, and be able to apply them in daily life, so that they can activate their inherent wisdom and ability. Then they will act with propriety and integrity, and become useful citizens when they grow up.

Principal Gan, director of the Summer Program at the Boys' School, said this year many parents registered early, hoping their children would be able to come to the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, receive the transforming influence of the Dharma, experience life at the City, see and join in the Buddhist ceremonies in the Buddha Hall and dining hall, practice meditation, and make friends. Because of a series of well-planned activities, students all had a great time.

The Dharma Master in charge of the Summer Program at the Girls' School said that this year's program consisted primarily of an introduction to Buddhism , with various interesting courses to help students develop their inherent wisdom.

In the quiet and beautiful surroundings of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, the two-week program passed by busily and happily. Grateful students looked forward to coming back next year. Several students applied to enroll for long-term study. Many parents hope the schools will announce the program even earlier next year, so they can be sure to participate.
