April 20, 2020 marks the eighth anniversary of Tian-Jin Temple.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Tian-Jin Temple in the journey to contribute to the community and promote Chinese traditions and culture.
Within these past eight years, we have had hundreds of volunteers devote their time to help us meet our goals. We would not have been able to support the community through our initiatives without the collective efforts of our volunteers.
Tian-Jin Temple originated from Taiwan 34 years ago, when Master Chen Yutang from Kaohsiung City started building a religious platform for individuals to learn about and participate in Taoist rituals. We give our gratitude to Master Millie Chen and Teacher Yu, both of whom have worked hard to recreate the dream here in Canada, and launch programs, services, and activities to aid the community.
We take pride in our Temple's mission to help, to save and to salvage as best we can. Despite the hardships and challenges, our teachers dedicate their hard work and valuable time to upholding our mission. They mentor and guide us on our journey to make a difference in the lives of others.
Under the leadership of Master Millie and Teacher Yu, we together as a team, carry forward the spirits of Kuan Kung and Pu Sha to bring harmony and stability to the world.
In particular, beyond religious offerings, Tian-Jin Temple in Canada has invested considerable effort in community service, following the mission to do our best to support, help, and enlighten all who are in need.
TJ Living is a subsidiary to our non-profit organization with a mission to serve the greater public through our services and programs.
Following Taoist principles, Tian-Jin Temple regularly offers activities for the general public to partake in self-improvement and self-care through religious or spiritual practices.
The temple aims to actively promote the academic and cultural status of Taoist learning and introduce traditional Chinese culture to the community.
Tian-Jin Formation Drums and the Eight Generals Performing Troupe are frequently invited to perform at festivals and galas to showcase the traditional art of drumming and the spectacular costume designs.
We aslo actively collaborate and cooperate with other ethnic cultural organizations to promote multiculturalism.
Again, thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that make up the joyful and loving family at Tian-Jin Temple. We appreciate all the support we have received in the past 8 years, and look forward to more memories to come!
