Venerable Master Bo Yuan is an important figure in Buddhism in Malaysia. Not only is he one of the major contributors, he is also a celebrated poet and an accomplished calligrapher. Bo Yuan entered monkhood at the age of 19 and came to Malaysia in 1961. Apart from propagating the Dharma by preaching and literary works, the late Venerable was also noted in the Arts Circle for his calligraphy and Chinese brush paintings. His creative works earned him the “Spiritual Ink” 神墨碑林 and “Poetic Sage” 詩聖碑林 award of China.
