一、購置位於加拿大溫哥華金佛聖寺東側,具地利之便的停車場。

二、位於加拿大卡加利(Calgary)華嚴聖寺的擴建設計方案,由董事會審核後,建議就地基及結構進行評估,以鑑定其所能承受之最高層數,並依據其負荷量,重新規晝擴建方案。(此項採取唐代建築風格的擴建經費,於十二月會議通過。)

四、提供經費爲萬佛聖城兩所女校粉刷外觀。

五、成立「公共健康委員會」(由比丘恆律、比丘尼恆良任顧問;委員包括比丘尼恆賢、恆頤、恆護、恆選、沙彌尼恆定、居士朱建和、易果參、果通(Fran Laughton)、果須(BarbaraWaugh)、易果涵)研討傳染疾病的相關法規及醫療檢驗等事宜,並向董事會提交報告。

六、核准法界佛教大學二000年一月至六月預算。

七、「千禧年資訊危機(Y2K)」議題由鄭溫仁居士提出討論,提醒各位特別注意以下事項:

  1.法總各分支機構應於一九九九年十二月最後一星期內,備妥其銀行戶口報表的複印本。(法總各道場自備資料以證明戶頭結餘,防範年初銀行系統不測之誤。)

  2.所有電腦資料應以磁碟、光碟存檔,建議存二份備用檔。會計程式的數據尤易遭受侵害。

  3.儲備飲水及食物以防年初不時之需。

  4.勿於除夕外出旅行。避免於假期間外出旅行,迴避人多之處。(此亦爲美國政府所發佈的警告。)

八、位於澳洲爲法總而捐贈興建的中心已準備就緒,待法總人員接收啟用。法總男衆法師將於二000年二月底前往常住。

九、一九九九年十二月十一日星期六,佛經翻譯委員會於柏林根市國際譯經院舉行會報,就歐洲語、中文、英文及雙語出版的進度提出報告。何親翰居士與楊親玉居士發心測試兩座佛經翻譯委員會的網站。一爲運作網站,提供有心人士查詢佛經翻譯委員會各企劃案的進度,及尋找適合本身參與的工作項目。

此站網址爲:www.snetworking.com/bttsinfo;另一測試網站(目前尚無網址)將提供網上行銷佛經翻譯委員會出版文物之用。

 

In October, 1999, the Board of Directors of DRBA passed a resolution mandating that a report be written to all members of DRBA bi-monthly. The report is to record all the major decisions reached, policies decided upon, committees formed, and other pertinent business. This is the first report, which covers the October 10, 1999 meeting.

1) A resolution passed to purchase a parking lot located strategically to the east of the new Gold Buddha Monastery.

2) A design plan outlining the expansion of Avatamsaka Monastery in Calgary was shown to the Board. A recommendation followed to investigate the foundation and structure to determine how many stories they will support and then to redesign to expand to the maximum. [Note: At the December, 1999 meeting the Tang dynasty style expansion was reviewed and financing was approved for the project.]

3) A resolution passed to finance the construction of soccer field/basketball courts for both the boys' and the girls' schools at CTTB.

4) A resolution passed to finance painting the exterior of the two girls' schools at CTTB.

5) A Public Health Committee was formed [composed of Heng Lyu Shi and Heng Liang Shi as advisors; Heng Hsien Shi, Heng Yi Shi, Heng Hu Shi, Heng Hsuan Shi, Heng Ding Shi, John Chu, Terri Nicholson, Fran Laughton, Barbara Waugh, and Ocean Epstein] to investigate the laws, medical tests, etc., involved in contagious diseases and to report to the Board on those matters.

6) A resolution passed to approve the DRBU Jan-Jun 2000 budget.

7) Y2K issues were discussed by Mr. William Jeng. Everyone should take special note of these.

  1. DRBA branches should get copies of their accounts' bank statements during the last week of December 1999 (so that if banks have trouble over the new year, DRBA Way-places will have records to show their account balances.)
  2. Save all data on all computers to disk, zip, CD. Best to make two back-ups. Accounting programs' data will be especially vulnerable.
  3. Acquire some drinking water and a supply of food in case there are problems in the first days of the new year.
  4. Don't travel on New Year's Eve. Avoid travel & large crowds over the holidays. [This is also a US government warning.]

8) Report that the new center [donated and built for DRBA] in Australia is now ready for DRBA members to occupy. DRBA monks will go there to reside in late February 2000.

9) BTTS held a meeting Saturday, December 11, 1999 at the International Translation Institute. Reports on European language, Chinese, English, and bilingual publications were given. John Hall and Lucie Yang volunteered to pilot two web sites for BTTS. One will be a working site, where interested people can go to check on the progress of BTTS projects and to find jobs they might wish to do.

The site address is www.snetworking.com/bttsinfo. The second pilot involves on-line sales of BTTS publications (no address yet).
