IBC First Convocation: Message from the Rector Venerable Professor Dr K L Dhammajoti

(IBC, August 20, 2008)

Today, we are here making history in holding the first ever Convocation Ceremony of IBC. As the Chinese saying goes, "Every undertaking experiences difficulties at the beginning." IBC is a new undertaking, and its founding members, staff and students have all gone through considerable difficulties in arriving at this victorious stage. On this special occasion, while specially congratulating the first batch of graduates, I must express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have contributed in various ways to the success of IBC: Its founding members, past and present Rectors, Vice-rectors, Chairmen and members of the IBC Council, past and present chairmen and members of the Academic Committee, all staff members, well-wishers and supporters.

Compared to the glorious days in the past, monastic institutions of all great religions in the world are experiencing spiritual decline to varying degrees. Buddhism is no exception, even if it could claim to fare better comparatively. Today, we often come across frustration expressed by the younger intelligent monks that genuine spiritual inspiration is hard to come: There are few monastic teachers who are at once great Buddhist scholars and profoundly spiritual and therefore truly inspiring. In brief, we might speak of a crisis of spiritual leadership in the modern materialistic world. The big question, then, is: How to produce a new generation of Sangha members who can at once inspire themselves as well as others learning the Dharma from them?

Such a question, no doubt, is more easily raised then answered. So far, no easy solution seems to be at sight. On the one hand, the "Sangha educators" need to understand that the younger Sangha members are living in a world which is a far cry from ancient India, and experiencing new (at least in form) psychological responses and facing new challenges. Accordingly, they cannot simply imitate the ancient conditions. On the other hand, the fundamental Buddhist values cannot be compromised. There are also various other difficulties, such as the obstacle of sectarianism which prevents mutual inspiration among worthy Sangha members belonging to the different traditions.

Nonetheless, difficult though it is, we must now make a start urgently. In the midst of our own imperfections as teachers in the monastic order, we must at least strive to make it possible for those younger Sangha members who are seeking a conducive environment to integrate both their intellectual learning and spiritual yearning, both prajñā and śraddhā.

Emulating the spirit of the great ancient Nālandā University in India, IBC was founded with the vision of establishing a unique training ground for the Buddhist Sangha. This ideal entails, among other things, the emphasis of a non-sectarian Spiritual Community -- as opposed to a mere institutionalized Group truly committed to the Triple Gems, and integrating scholarly Buddhist studies with spiritual praxis. In simpler terms, it means adding a spiritual dimension to scholastic pursuit (ancient or modern), and practicing the Buddhist ideal of kalyāna-mitratā. It is for this reason that, in addition to providing quality teachings of the university system, we specifically insist on the communal living of a harmonious Sangha, with morning and evening devotion and meditation in the total context of the spiritual life. We have no doubt a lot to learn from trials and errors, a lot of difficulties to overcome, and a long way to go. Let us all remain ever mindful of this vision and struggle together for its realization with Dharma-joy (dharma-prīti, dhamma-pīti).

第一届毕业典礼 - 校长 法光法师发表文告
(本校 2008 年 8 月 20 日)

- 此篇文稿乃简要翻译本校校长 法光法师 于本校第一届毕业典礼的发表文告。。

简辑法光法师文稿如下 :

今天,我们终于在这里举行了深具历史性的第一届毕业典礼。诸如华人传统中所说的:“万事起头难”。国际佛教大学是一所新兴学府,其中各委员、职工、师生们,都经历了艰辛才达到今日的成就。在这个特别的日子,我要祝福所有第一届的毕业生外,更要对所有过去及现在参与建设大学的委员们衷心致谢。

比起过去辉煌的时刻,全世界各大宗教的寺院组织都面对不同程度的精神修行素质的下滑。佛教也不例外,尽管比起其他宗教还算较好些。现今,我们常常由于年轻一代僧侣未能表现出良好的精神修行素质而感到沮丧。少数寺院里的教师,他们是伟大的佛教学者,并且拥有深厚的精神修行,这是很令人鼓舞的。换句话说,在我们现在这个物质生活的年代,精神修行出现危机了。最大的问题是:如何培育新一代的僧侣一方面自强不息,另方面可以成为人们的师表?

无疑的,这个问题可以轻易的得到答案。然而,眼前却还未有更好的解决方案。另一方面,教师必须清楚知道我们的新一代出家众已经跟古印度距离很远,至少在形式上他们经历新的心理反应,以及面对新的挑战。因此,他们不能再单纯的效仿古代的情况;然而,佛教的基本价值观也不能因此而妥协。这里面存在各种不同的难处,例如不同的佛教传承及教派就会互相妨碍。

我们必须面对自己的缺陷,刻不容缓的努力为这些年轻僧侣提供良好的修行环境,以协助他们开发智力与实践佛法的精神教育。仿效古印度那烂陀大学的精神,国际佛教大学的发起就是为了提供一个独特的训练场所予信徒。这个理念,须要没有教派分歧的大众僧团精神、衷心信仰三宝、教行合一。

简单说,我们要实践精神修行,实践慈善的佛教理念。正是这样,大学除了重视教育素质外,我们更特别坚持大众僧团生活的和谐,除了早晚课,精神修持的生活中还必须有止观的能力为引导。无疑的,我们有许多错误,从错误中学习;有许多困难须要克服,有很长的路要走。让我们紧记这个目标,共同努力,为它的实现而法喜充满。
