Temples & Shrines

Taoism is multifaceted and can be practised anywhere. Cultivating oneself through the Taoist arts transforms body, mind and spirit. While the Taoist arts are practised at all our locations and are the foundation of the Taoist path, temples and shrines offer practitioners the opportunity to express particular Taoist traditions, especially rituals and ceremonies. A temple or shrine is open to everyone, regardless of background or belief. Each one is centred around an altar to one or more deities, who represent aspects of the teachings such as wisdom or compassion. Members of the public are welcome to visit, pay their respects and take part in the activities provided, such as the ceremonies and festivals that occur during the year. Temples may also include memorial altars where plaques in honour of the deceased are installed by family and friends to ensure their loved ones are cared for in the afterlife.

Part of the International Centre in Orangeville, Canada is the Three Religions Temple. This main temple houses deities from Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism. There is also a Dau Mo Shrine, a Chi Wo Tan Altar, and a Memorial Hall, Columbarium and Cemetery for paying respect to the souls of the deceased as well as caring for their remains.

Located on Steeles Avenue, this temple is dedicated to Wong Dai Sin, a Taoist Immortal who is particularly well-loved in Hong Kong. Although he was a simple shepherd boy, he displayed great virtue and was able to cultivate immortality by practising the Taoist arts. This architecturally-innovative, Governor-General’s Medal-winning building, which opened in 2015, has quickly become an important landmark and gathering place for people who wish to participate in the services that regularly take place here. This temple also includes a Memorial Hall. Memorial plaques are available to anyone who wishes to commemorate a loved one.

About Wong Dai Sin

Wong Dai Sin is a Taoist immortal who is particularly well known and venerated in Hong Kong as well as communities in Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces. According to his story, although he was a simple shepherd boy, he displayed great virtue and was able to cultivate immortality by practising the Taoist arts on Mount Chisong (“Red Pine”) in Zhejiang. Afterward, he became known for “helping all and promoting goodness.”With this temple, we hope to help spread his spirit of sincerity, perseverance and compassion and provide a place for all who wish to benefit from the practice of Taoism.

In the heart of Toronto’s traditional Chinatown, the D’Arcy Street Temple is an active and vibrant temple and Memorial Hall. It was the home of our founder, Master Moy Lin Shin, in his final years. It hosts regular ceremonies and festivals as well as other events drawing visitors from the local community as well as from around the world.
