2012矗立大埔 李嘉誠捐10億建全球最高觀音像

繼大嶼山天壇大佛後,本港明年底將出現另一佛教地標。

在大埔桐梓興建中的全球最高戶外青銅觀音像及慈山寺,工程進行得如火如荼。本刊獲悉,該七十六米高觀音像由生產「神舟七號」金屬軟管、鑄造天壇大佛的南京航天晨光公司承造,蓮花座剛率先運抵本港安裝。

這項歷時八年的建寺大計,傳聞獲得篤信佛教的長實主席李嘉誠發心並低調支持,其名下基金會捐出全部建設經費,涉資逾十億元。

慈山寺由香海正覺蓮社社長覺光法師出任主席,他接受本刊訪問時說,觀音像位置風水佳,坐北向南,與天壇大佛遙遙相對,可祝福香港,令社會更祥和。他又讚揚李嘉誠為弘揚佛法出錢出力:「李生有這個佛心是很不可思議,他一個人出錢,給全世界人禮佛,並無求回報。」

在大埔桐梓興建中的全球最高戶外青銅觀音像,高七十六米,將成為慈山寺最矚目的建築。整個慈山寺興建大計,傳聞獲長實主席李嘉誠捐出逾十億元支持。

記者連月走訪洞梓山一帶,當車子駛近汀角路三門仔,離遠已看見觀音像的支架,雖然觀音像仍有待鑲嵌,但因其高聳入雲、佇立山下,遠看已甚具氣勢,一海之隔的吐露港公路也看到其貌。

進入慈山寺的唯一通道是洞梓路,每日不停有泥頭車及工人進出,似乎忙着趕工。沿着洞梓路一直行,到達分叉口轉右,則進入一條小山路,不遠處便是慈山寺地盤入口。

現場所見,該段山路已被擴闊,兩旁亦設有行人路及街燈。「去年已將大埔林村一棵老樹搬入去,應該會放在藏經閣旁,由於棵樹好大,當日運送過程都好大陣仗。」一名工人透露。

鍾靈毓秀寶地

慈山寺附近有多條鄉村及屋苑,在寶富花園住了超過十年的吳太,見證了觀音像的施工。對於觀音像即將落成,她感到十分興奮,「我屋企都望到觀音,將來這裏有寺院、大雄寶殿,應該是風水好地。」

慈山寺地盤約五十萬平方呎,原為已荒廢採泥區,但此處背靠八仙嶺,面向船灣淡水湖,據知覺光法師等人覺得這裏屬「鍾靈毓秀之寶地」,於是○三年向城規會申請興建慈山寺及七十六米高的觀音像,較天壇大佛還要高出一倍。
