Lingyen Mountain Temple Tour & Lunch

Thanks to Lily for arranging this interesting experience. We went there last year and loved it! The temple is located along a stretch of No. 5 Road between Blundell and Steveston Highway in an area known as the “Road to Heaven”.

Schedule: Temple tour at 11am followed by lunch, by donation. We will not be collecting funds, this is a by donation event. Usual donation is $10 and up.

All items will be vegan, but no menu is given in advance. Imagine you are a monk or nun, graciously accepting what is offered. Last year was a nice variety of items.

Carpooling is encouraged. Please post if you are driving and from what location so that those seeking rides can contact you. If you're looking for a ride and you see someone offering, please click on their name and then click on "send email" on their profile, so that emails to the entire group are kept at a minimum.

    Enjoyed the tour and the sincere dedication of the volunteer guides. Interesting to learn more about the life of a Buddhist monk. The food was great, also served by dedicated volunteers.

    I loved everything. All of it. Every moment. And the meal was so good, maybe because I was hungry and a little cold and the beings serving us our meal were so generous in their care of us, I felt it, you know that moment when you are warm and safe? I tried very hard to do good but I ate ALL of my food and was thankful.

    Used to play regularly at Mylora/No.5 golf course next door, before it closed, but had never set foot in the Temple till today. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, well organized with vegetarian lunch in the end. Thank you, Lily as always. Was a very pleasant afternoon.
