Nan Tien Temple is a Buddhist sanctuary complex situated in Berkeley, on the southern edges of the Australian city of Wollongong, around 80 kilometers 50 mi south of Sydney. Nan Tien is one of the branch sanctuaries of the Taiwanese Fo Guang Shan Buddhist request, established in 1967 by Hsing Yun, which has more than 120 branches around the world. The sanctuary is one of the biggest Buddhist sanctuaries in the southern side of the equator.
It was established by and developed under the protection of the Mahayana Buddhist association known as Fo Guang Shan, and finished in 1995. The association itself was established in Taiwan in 1967 by Venerable Master Hsing Yun and has 120 branches all through the world. Fo Guang Shan Buddhism is established in the Mahayana custom which accentuates that Buddhahood is inside everybody's potential reach.
Fo Guang Shan supporters endeavor to bring Buddhism into day by day life and portray their rationality as "Humanistic Buddhism". The site of the Australian branch's sanctuary was supposedly picked by Hsing Yun because of its closeness to Mount Kembla, which is said to have a propitious likeness to a supine lion. It neglects both Mount Keira and Mount Kembla. The land was given by the Australian government.
