2018佛光山大學校長論壇114日於佛光樓國際會議廳舉行,會後參訪時段,館長如常法師特別先向校長們介紹佛館發展目標,並分享佛館舉行的展演活動,例如2018國際書展暨蔬食博覽會。

參訪過程中,眾人對創辦人星雲大師創新的弘法深感興趣,如觀音殿祈求甘露法水、金佛殿抽法語解疑惑,隨後也前往佛光山宗史館認識人間佛教五十年來的發展。在佛教地宮還原館,校長一行更對於星雲大師為了保存人類文明與世代傳承,特別建造48個地宮的創舉深表敬佩。韓國東國大學副校長李觀濟更表示此行從星雲大師的人間佛教獲得深刻的啟發。

隨後星雲大師也出席佛光樓國際會議廳,分享自小就與外婆學習佛法,至今一生所做就是和尚;雖然沒上過學,還是有尊敬的老師,那就是「孔老夫子」,孔夫子的理念、論著對他一生有極大的影響,並讚嘆校長如至聖先師孔子,希望來自各國的校長多能與山上互動,讓教育更能確實落實。

On the 4th of November, the 2018 Fo Guang Shan University Presidents Forum was held at the Fo Guang Building International Conference Hall. After the final conference session, the delegates were given a tour around the Museum compound. Before the tour, Venerable Ru Chang, Director of the Buddha Museum, briefed the delegates on the developmental goals of the Museum and introduced upcoming activities including the 2018 International Book Fair cum Vegetarian Expo.

During the tour, the guests were interested in how Venerable Master Hsing Yun, Founder of Fo Guang Shan, propagated the Dharma through innovative means, such as asking for blessed water in the Avalokitesvara Shrine and picking Dharma words in the Golden Buddha Shrine. In the Historical Museum of Fo Guang Shan, they saw how Humanistic Buddhism was developed over the past fifty years. Inside the Museum of Buddhist Underground Palaces, they saw how through innovative means, human civilization would be preserved and left for future generations. Kwan Jeh Lee, Vice President of Dongguk University, Korea, remarked that he was truly inspired by Venerable Master Hsing Yun in his propagation of Humanistic Buddhism.

After the tour, the delegates were greeted by Venerable Master Hsing Yun at the International Conference Hall. Venerable Master said that he has come to know about Buddhism through his grandmother and has dedicated his whole life to monasticism. Though he has never received full education, he has a role model -- Confucius. The teaching of Confucius has a huge influence on his life. He compared all university presidents to Confucius, and encouraged all delegates to interact with one another in order to actualize the ideals of education.
