New Year Festival of Light and Peace

Every Chinese New Year, Fo Guang Shan hosts the New Year Festival of Light and Peace as well as the Light Offering Dharma Service, while its branch temples around the world host the latter, in the hope to provide the opportunity to light up the devotees' own light of compassion and wisdom.

Venerable Master Hsing Yun's New Year greetings to the public in 2024 is "May You Be Free as Cloud and Water, Auspicious and Joyful."
