观音基金会 Yayasan Guan Yin

观音基金会于1999年5月25日正式获得批准成立。

观音基金会的创办缘起于 1999年举办的《千手千眼》舞剧,这部由中马两国文化艺术工作者联手呈献的大型舞剧,成功在大马舞台创下十二场全程爆满的记录。

千手千眼》舞剧空前的演出成功,促成观音基金会全体理事会立愿,通过艺术演出的火花,凝聚庞大的义工团队力量,共同推动及赞助了多项慈善、文化、教育的活动。

观音基金会创办至今,在董事局,理事会及一群义工团队们的齐心协力领导下,本着学习及体现观音菩萨“千处祈求千处应”的慈悲济世的精神,长期为宗教、文化、教育及慈善方面尽一分绵力。

Yayasan Guan Yin (YGY) was incorporated as a non-profit making organization to promote and propagate Buddhism and to work closely with other Buddhist associations to foster compassion, tolerance, peace and harmony throughout our society. Besides spreading the message of kindness and understanding, it also sets out to organize charity events and activities to alleviate the plight of the needy and unfortunate.

Registered under the Malaysian Companies Act on 25th May 1999, the Foundation is presently located in Subang Jaya and currently enjoys a membership of about 1,000 followers.

Before its formation, a group of dedicated volunteers led by Datuk Tan Swee Lai organized the first ever large scale stage production titled “Thousand Arms Thousand Eyes Theatrical Performance”. This production featuring top class performers from China, supported by many local artistes, was a runway success with all 12 shows completely sold out. Inspired by this success, Datuk and this group of volunteers decided to form an organization to propagate the teachings of the Buddha and to spread his message of kindness and compassion to all. As a result of their determination, Yayasan Guan Yin was established to further promote their noble cause and undertakings to the well-being and welfare of the society.

Objectives

  • To further develop Buddhism.
