Meditate to the sounds of Tao Fong Shan
Imbued with the love of the Lord, Tao Fong Shan has opened and manifested the mind of God since 1930. Over the past 90 years, Tao Fong Shan has been through decades of untold hardships with people of Hong Kong.
In good and bad times, the Big Cross continues to stand and shine through the dark from the hill of Sha Tin, symbolizing and reminding people of the Lord’s wish to bless this land. The tranquility from above contrasts the overwhelming streets at the bottom. Speak the way of God, it tells that it is Christ’s way to give blessings and way of life to people through the gospel. Blow with the wind, it signifies that the Spirit moves with the wind, quietly moistening the living things of God, completing the stories of people with God in the nature of Tao Fong Shan. We welcome you to take a moment and join us, slow down, relax your body, and meditate to the sounds of Tao Fong Shan.
Follow a narrow footpath you will find a narrow doorway, inscribed by Rev. Wang Ching Ch’ing, the Narrow Gate. On each side, wrote “True happiness will not be achieved by the many that enter through the broad road” and “very few enter through the narrow gate that leads to life”. We encourage you to slowly walk along the narrow pathway and gaze at the couplet, pass through the Narrow Gate and self-examine, where are you on the path of life?
Located beneath the Christ Temple, the Lotus Crypt was completed on Pentecost in 1932. Near the entrance to the left, you will find a small confessional. In the past, the founder of Tao Fong Shan Rev. Karl Ludvig Reichelt would lead his students in confession every Saturday and followed by 1-hour devotion in the Crypt.
