Main Altar of the Grand Hall

Main Altar of the Grand Hall

The Grand Hall of the True Buddha Vijaya Temple consists of a twenty seven foot high ceiling, with the focal point being the lively and magnificent Tantric altar. When one enters the Grand Hall, this altar gives rise to a pious and devout heart.

The Grand Hall is lined with eight grand dragon pillars standing majestically at the sides of the Grand Hall. Above, a twenty five foot in length and width grand ceiling caisson is suspended above the Grand Hall.

The center of the ceiling caisson is carved with the syllables of the Root Guru Mantra wheel so that every sentient being who has the affinity to come into contact with it are able to receive the blessings of the buddhas and bodhisattvas.

The main altar in the Grand Hall features the Buddhas of the Five Directions, Shakyamuni Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Vijaya Buddha Mother, Padmakumara, Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Manjushri Bodhisattva, Vajrasattva, Padmasambhava, Maha Cundi Bodhisattva, Yellow Jambhala, Yamantaka, Acalanatha, Ucchusma, Four Heavenly Dharma Kings, Hayagriva, Skanda, Sangharama, Wealth Deities of the Five Directions, Earth Deity, and others. Their dharma appearances are lively, and solemn.
