The Order Assembly has been responsible for playing the role of the top legislative organ in the religious group that sees fair play in developing and operating it since it was organized when Order's Charter was announced on January 1970. The Order Assembly that has been held more than two times per year is located in Guinsa Temple, the headquarters. And it usually decides and passes projects and budget and settlement of the religious project through discussion.
The term in office of the members of the Order Assembly is 4 years and the fixed number of the assembly is 30 persons. The special thing is the fact that 1/3 of the members consists of believer members. It shows that four classes of the persons who follow Buddha's teachings and compose the Buddhists Priesthood participate in duties of the religious group as they are. Participation of the believers who cultivate themselves morally or religiously is not limited to the Order Assembly but is deeply involved in operation of small temples managed by the headquarters. The point that the believers who cultivate themselves morally or religiously participate in business of the religious group is Tiantai Buddhism's advantage that cannot be found in other religious groups of Buddhism.
Tiantai Buddhism has practiced the three indicators by making Buddha's bright teachings a milestone since
it was rebuilt.
It has improved its status as the religious group that has been with the four classes of the persons who follow Buddha's teachings, practiced farming by day and practicing asceticism by night, and strived to concentrate on practice asceticism and tactics since it was rebuilt.
The Order Assembly of Tiantai Buddhism has put Jongjeongyeha on a pedestal until the 16th Order Assembly has been opened since the first central Order Assembly was created in B.E. 2513 (1969) and has put its heart and soul into committing itself to its duty as the legislative organ and representative body.
The members and all the members of the Order Assembly including myself will carry out their duty in the future. Again, I wish wisdom and happiness will be provided with all the people who make an alliance with Tiantai Doryang(道場) built in this cyberspace. Thank you.
