Dharma Instructor Lotus Jianhui has been spreading dharma in Indonesia for more than ten years, helping Jakarta Vihara Vajra Bumi Nusantara (印尼雷藏寺) with a variety of activities. He is well rounded and highly respected by fellow True Buddha disciples. He`s been involved in translating the Grand Master`s books into Indonesian as well as proofreading the translated works for many years. And Dharma Instructor Lotus Wenfu from Vihara Satya Buddha Purnama (圓月堂) has been working with Daden to promote and market the Grand Master`s books in Indonesia for years. He`s very experienced in dharma teaching. Both of them have had great success in their extended services in Indonesia. They both decided to enter monkhood at the Ling Shen Ching Tze Temple and the renunciation ceremony was presided over by the Grand Master on Saturday, November 1st, 2008 before the group practice.
On the afternoon of November 3rd, Grand Master transmitted the Vajra Acharya empowerment to the new monks in the Tantric Quarters. The former Dharma Instructor Lotus Jianhui is now known as Acharya Lian Fei. The former Dharma Instructor Lotus Wenfu is now known as Acharya Lian Zhu.
True Buddha Foundation (TBF) expects the new acharyas to deliver sentient beings and teach True Buddha dharma in Indonesia. TBF also hopes they will dedicate to fulfilling the sacred duties in representing the Grand Master in disseminate His teachings and extending the lineage of True Buddha dharma.
