Nan Hua is the name of the South African branch for the Humanistic Buddhist order, Fo Guang Shan, who has made it their mission to spread Humanistic Buddhism to all the continents on Earth.
Nan Hua acts as the central religious and administrative office for all Fo Guang Shan branches in Africa, which includes temples and centres throughout South Africa, Malawi, Tanzania and the Congo. The temple holds Chinese Dharma functions and Buddhist events that are held at the facilities, along with Western and Eastern Retreats.
Being a non-profit charity-religious organization, Nan Hua operates on donations made towards the spreading of Buddhist principles in South Africa and the drive to ease the suffering of people and promote a peaceful, moral life. This donation drive is called Dana, or generosity, and is intrinsic to the 2 500-year-old Buddhist tradition. Booking is essential.
