Immerse yourself on Golden Square Rooftop at the incredible Wisdom and Light experience. Go on a journey and learn all about spiritual leader Venerable Master Hsing Yun, the founder of the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist organisation, and famous for his writing, teachings and one-stroke calligraphy. This experience will fuse light, art and sound with digital technology in the heart of Melbourne CBD. This event will start on September 1, and end on October 2.
Wisdom and Light
When you hear the gongs of the temple bell, step through the temple gates and explore the wisdom and artwork of Venerable Master Hsing Yun. Through immersive projections, you’ll trace his journey from a young boy born in poverty, to the leader of one of the world’s largest Buddhist organisations.
After that, step into the gallery, and see rare, authentic and valuable one-stroke calligraphy. Then, try out an interactive calligraphy writing activity.
Relax in the illuminated Lotus Flower Sanctuary, then enjoy vegetarian food from Nobu’s former Head Chef. Hot and cold non-alcoholic beverages will also be available for you to drink.
The experience will take about 90 minutes, and the exhibition will be open every day from 10am to 10pm.
