Fung Ying Seen Koon

Fung Ying Seen Koon was established in 1929 as a Quanzhen Longmen School Daoist temple. We worship several significant Daoist deities, such as Taishang Laojun, Patriarch Lü Dongbin, Patriarch Qiu Chuji, Dipper Mother, Sixty Taisui, Guanyin and Numinous Officer Wang. As a Daoist temple, FYSK not only provides various religious services to the public, but also offers great support in all kinds of charitable activities. Satisfactory achievements could be found in four main sectors, they are elderly service, healthcare, social service and teenage education. Fung Ying Seen Koon is the agency member of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and the charitable religious organization of the exemption from tax by the recognition of the Hong Kong government.

The main works of Fung Ying Seen Koon are as follows: the establishment of Hong Kong Taoist Orchestra, Daoist Culture Centre Database of Fung Ying Seen Koon (, Taoist TV (; the publication of Daoism Studies periodical, the Series of Fung Ying Seen Koon Daoist Culture; co-organizing secondary and primary schools; establishment of kindergarten, study rooms, integrated services centre, neighbourhood elderly centre, Chinese medicine mobile clinic, community health centre; to cooperate with Chinese University of Hong Kong and Shanghai Conservatory of Music to establish Centre for Studies of Daoist Culture and Fung Ying Daoist Music Studies Fund respectively.

In the training of scripture chanters, Fung Ying Seen Koon upheld gender equality in the pursuit of Dao, and amended its statutes in 1966 to allow for the admission of women as apprentices from the Chong generation onwards. From then on, both men and women trained in scripture chanting and chanted at altars with no further need to seek recruits elsewhere. From the 1980's onwards, formal classes in scripture and liturgy were held, overcoming the barriers imposed by the face to face master-disciple mode of teaching in the past. From 1992 onwards, regular training courses in scripture chanting were held, recruiting not only ordained disciples within the temple, but also believers and interested individuals from the general public. It has groomed a considerable number of gaogong masters and batches of scripture chanters, nurturing new blood for the continuation of the musical tradition of the Hong Kong Quanzhen School.

The E-database of Hong Kong Quanzhen Temples Taoist Ritual Music was founded by Fung Ying Seen Koon in 2016 with the financial sponsorship from the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust. Fung Ying Seen Koon is the operator of the database and aim to preserve the Hong Kong Daoist ritual music by this project.
