Hua-yen Buddhaverse / Hua-yen Concert

Mindfulness Immersive Experience Hua-yen Buddhaverse


The new Arts Tech Hua-yen Buddhaverse 2022 is a presentation of pujas with Arts Tech, as well as a journey of Hua-yen through sounds and images. With the use of immersive projection, 3D LED screens and audio, and the specially designed “mindfulness through movement” method, an immersive world of the Hua-yen is created. “Mindfulness through movement” encourages subtle movements such as breathing, eyes and mouth movements among the audience. Combined with the imagery in Venerable Thích Nhất Hạnh’s texts and the chanting of the Hua-yen scripture, it allows the audience to easily achieve a state of balance between the mind and body.


‘The digital world is made up of the digits ‘0’ and ‘1’ upon which an infinite digital world is thus created. The inspiration for the multimedia design of the performance Hua-yen Sutra originates from the concept of ‘One’ and ‘Many’, or ‘Unity’ and ‘Diversity’, in the World of Hua-yen.” Mathias Woo, the Director’s note, Hua-yen Sūtra (2007)


Hua-yen Concert – Reveal Insights of Interbeing through Sounds


At the Grand Theatre of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, a live concert, Hua-Yen reveals Insights of Interbeing through Sounds. Mind and Light, the key words of Buddhist philosophy, are brought to life by Naamyam – the Cantonese narrative singing performance – reinterpreting the signature theme songs from the theatre series Hua-yen Sūtra: Minds as Skillful Painter, The Ten Directions Are But One Thought, Song of Meditation, etc. Hua-yen offers multiple interpretations of the ancient Siddhaṃ script through a live performance that includes the art forms of singing, chanting, Cantonese Naamyam, and a live band playing Chinese and Western music, giving shape to the Hua-yen Avatamsaka world with a diversity of sounds.
