Longquan Monastery Information Center, established in July, 2011, is a department specializing in information technology for monastic and Buddhist development. It originated from an IT project in 2011 for building a modern system for the long-term and systematic storage the articles and teachings of Ven. Master Xuecheng. Under the merciful guidance of Ven. Master Xuecheng and the leadership of Master Xianxin, the centre follows the principle of “seeking ultimate value beyond the life of technology” and has become a platform for not only IT development, but also religious practice of volunteers as well as a communication platform for people from all walks of society.

Staff of the centre consists of full-time and part-time laities and volunteers who mainly come from various fields in the IT industry, including program development, product design, software testing, system maintenance, and project management etc. As many of them are Buddhists believers, they study Buddha dharma sincerely while busying with the project.

The centre holds regular project team meetings every weekend, and Buddhism studying classes for joint cultivation. Furthermore, such group activities as computer skill training, laboring, gathering, and hiking are also organized on an irregular basis.

Since the opening of the center, more and more people come to the center for visits, communication and study. In 2014, two IT Dhyana Camps were organized, where many IT preofessionals went through an unforgettable spiritual journey of farming, Zen meditation, lectures and exchanges. Through the activities, the participants gained a better understanding of the true meaning of Buddhist culture and the profound traditional Chinese culture.

The information center has opened a door of computer technology for promoting the ancient and profound Buddhism in modern world, as well as a window for the youth to learn Chinese Buddhism and Chinese traditional culture so as to recognize their social responsibility and obtain ultimate belief. We hereby welcome more and more people sharing the true spirit of Buddhism to put your goodwill into practice with us together by contributing your IT expertise to explore the true meaning of life and ultimate value of belief.
