Go into the gate of the Buddhist temple and you will see a building called the Temple of Heaven. Tianwang Temple is dedicated to the four heavenly kings and Maitreya Bodhisattva; The four kings are law enforcement, protecting this Dojo. Do you know what it really means?
The first is the king of the East. "Hold" is to maintain; The "country" is the country. The most important meaning in the country is "responsible for all points." We are self-cultivation and family, that is, we are responsible to ourselves, to the family, to society and to the country; Who you are, who you are. We are dedicated to our own work in our own posts, and each of us is responsible and responsible for his own duties. This is what he said and taught us. What the king of the country holds in his hand is a PIPA(musical instrument), which also means Dharma. What does that mean? Responsible due diligence must be done just right, can not exceed, can not fail, this is the middle way. Confucianism talks about moderation, Buddhism talks about the middle road. Like a string, if you are too tight, it will break; It is too loose to play, and must be adjusted just right, that is to say, we must be in proportion to people, to things, to things, to do just right, it means!
The second is the king of growth in the South. "Growth" is, in modern words, progress; Advance with the times, do not advance or retreat. Confucian teachings are new, new and new, and they are always seeking progress; The Dharma talks about refinement, not only to progress, but also to be pure. During progress, we must hold on to purity. This is what Buddhism has given us. So Dharma always stands at the front of the time, that you do not seek progress how to do, the whole society is progressing, you fall behind, will be eliminated.
Therefore, virtue must be improved, wisdom must be increased, skills must be improved, talents must be improved, and even our quality of life must be upgraded every day. This is the Dharma. Dharma talks about asceticism, which is at the stage of study. Because what the Buddha is talking about is to teach us to enjoy ourselves from suffering. Don't make a mistake. We are going to suffer from happiness. This can not be found in the Dharma. Therefore, asceticism is in the stage of study, as if we are studying in school, the stage of study is to be bitter, and we enter the society to benefit the people. This time is to get pleasure from suffering; Not only do we enjoy ourselves, help the whole society, and help all the people to enjoy ourselves, but we must not make a mistake. Asceticism is a stage, not a permanent one. You must know this.
The king of growth is holding a sword. This sword is also a symbol of Dharma. It represents the sword of wisdom and can break troubles. Worry is like silk and like chaos, so it is quick to cut loose. Only wisdom can solve all the complicated things. It means this.
The third and fourth are the Western King of Heaven and the Northern King of Heaven. The first two are the goals of our studies. We must be responsible for our due diligence, and we must be new and new. So how do we do that? These two heavenly kings taught us -- to read more and listen more, the so-called "read thousands of books, travel thousands of miles." Wisdom comes from here! To read, read the Buddhist scriptures; We must go everywhere to see and inspect, as we say now, sightseeing and inspection. What is "light"? The customs of that place, the customs of that place. We go to see that we all understand the strengths of others, we study; People's defects, to reflect on whether we have. We can take the long, short, to build our country, to build our society, is not this the world's best country, the best society! This is not imaginary, it is to ask you to go to investigate, to study. It can be seen that Buddhism is indeed very practical for us, and it is not empty talk; Teach us to see and listen more, to grow our own knowledge and to grow our own knowledge.

Then Guangmu Tianwang took a dragon in his right hand, or sometimes the statue was made of a snake. What do dragons and snakes stand for? It means unpredictable. This is about people, society and the world. It is very, very complex. It is often changing. You have the wisdom to control it, to control the situation and to be able to handle it.
In the North, there are many kings. He has an umbrella cover in his hand. What does an umbrella mean? The umbrella is to cover, that is, the Environmental Protection we speak today, to cover the dust, not only to see more, listen more, but also to protect their own physical and mental integrity, not tempted, not contaminated. So if you really understand, really understand, as soon as you go into the temple of the king of heaven to see these statues, it will teach you a lesson. This lesson really protects your own physical and mental health, your personal happiness, your family's happiness, social harmony, the country's prosperity and prosperity, and the peace of the world, all of which are true. You must be aware of its expression-the interest of teaching. It's art education.
