The mission of the temple is to promote Humanistic Buddhism but it also aims to benefit and is open to the non-Buddhists, as they believe "through education and teaching people how to lead good lives." Even before its official opening, the temple had provided community courses such as Chinese calligraphy, Chinese language, yoga and martial arts, as well as providing a venue for crime prevention talks and meetings.

Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday- 09:00 to 17:00 hours. Closed on Public Holidays.

Location: 16 Stancombe Road, East Tamaki 2016, New Zealand
