Introduction


Huafan University is founded by a well-known Buddhist educator and artist, the Ven. Master Hiu Wan, who particularly advocatedChinese Culture”, “Enlightened Education”, “Integration of Arts and Daoism” and other similar lines of thought.  The Department of Buddhist Studies was established in 2008 in pursuance of Master Hiu Wan’s ideology, which was Buddhism based on Chinese Culture as the foundation for teaching and featuring the special characteristics of Tiantai Studies.  The teachings and contemplation of Tiantai Study is the most complete system in the Chinese traditions.  In addition, Ven. Master Hiu Wan is also a successor to the Tiantai School lineage.  Many of our University’s academic staff have Tiantai expertise, hence the central focus of our Department's curriculum is mainly Chinese Buddhism and the Tiantai Studies, emphasising the simultaneity of understanding and practice, the inclusive embracement of all Schools.  Our Departmental staff have expertise in “The Saddharma-Pundarīka Sūtra (The Lotus Sutra)”, The Avatamsaka Sūtra (The Huayan Sutra), “The Śūrangama Sūtra (The Lengyan Sutra)”, the study of Chan (Jp. Zen), and Dunhuang Studies.

 

 

       The Department utilises the amalgamation of resources from The College of Liberal Arts, The College of Arts and Design, The College of Industrial Engineering and Management and the University-industry cooperatives in promoting courses in Buddhist Thanatological (Life and Death Education) (including palliative care, the training of clinical religious workers), Buddhist Arts and Literature, and Temple Management.  These courses integrate tradition and modernity, in developing the diverse abilities of our students in order to adapt to modern societal trends and in meeting the human resource demands of the Buddhist community.
