Special Announcement

F.G.S Hsi Lai Temple Lunar New Year Parking(Free Shuttle Service)
The 2015 Lunar New Year Festival is coming soon. In the past, a considerable number of visitors have come here on the first few days of the festival. This has caused a lot of inconvenience to many because we do not have a large enough parking lot to accommodate all our New Year visitors. Therefore, this year we have loaned one overflow/offsite parking lot for February 19, 20, 21, 22. 28, and March 1. It will only take you 3 minutes to drive there from the Tem pe.

We are delighted that you have shown an interest in Chinese culture and in Buddhism and have chosen to visit us. Our founder, Venerable Master Hsing Yun is recognized world-wide for his dedication in promoting Humanistic Buddhism which embraces all traditions and schools and stresses the salient teachings of the Buddha, which are relevant to and essential for the well being and progress of humanity in modern times. We at Hsi Lai are committed to serving as a bridge between East and West so that the Buddha's teachings of kindness, compassion, joyfulness, and equanimity might be integrated into our lives and of those around us to the benefit of all and that we might learn the ways to cultivate the wisdom to clearly understand the true nature of all things.

Since 1958, the parade has been under the direction of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

Over 100 units will participate in the Southwest Airlines® Chinese New Year Parade. A San Francisco tradition since just after the Gold Rush, the parade continues to delight and entertain the many hundreds of thousands of people that come to watch it on the street or tune in to watch it on television on KTVU Fox 2 or KTSF Channel 26, 6:00-8:00 p.m., on Saturday, March 7, 2015.

Nowhere in the world will you see a lunar new year parade with more gorgeous floats, elaborate costumes, ferocious lions, exploding firecrackers , and of course the newly crowned Miss Chinatown U.S.A. and her court. A crowd favorite is the spectacular 268' Golden Dragon ("Gum Lung") It takes a team of over 100 men and women from the martial arts group, White Crane to carry this dragon throughout the streets of San Francisco.
