Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, LBSM library,

04-11-1993 宣公上人攝於長堤聖寺圖書室前


According to our founder, Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, Long Beach Sagely Monastery is the Way-place of Earth Store Bodhisattva, hence the large Earth Store Bodhisattva's statue in the back of the Buddha Hall. 


The couplet on the sides of the front entrance reads:

Long Beach Sagely Monastery where Dharma rains equally moisten--its Way contemplates the past and present;


Los Angeles' Dragon Palace where sweet dews universally nurture--its virtue matches Heaven and Earth.

As you enter the Buddha Hall, to your left is a side hall from which Venerable Master Hsuan Hua used to lecture to the packed Buddha Hall.  Now his picture hangs on the wall behind his Dharma seat.
