Forty years ago, when the Chinese Buddhist Association was founded, it called for Buddhists all over the country to "respect the land and enjoy the love". It is hoped that Buddhists will not only devote themselves to material civilization, but also promote the spiritual quality of the people. The "Buddhist Jiayan Calligraphy Collection" published by the "Chinese Buddhist Culture Publishing Co., Ltd." happened to use the calligraphy of various calligraphers to engage in the business of "the solemn land and the good fortune".

The "Buddhist Calligraphy Collection" compiles 108 good words from Buddhist scriptures, discourses, and quotations that are beneficial to self-cultivation and life. Sixty-one contemporary calligraphers are invited to write them. Among them are elders over 90 years old. Professors and experts with arduous tasks, it is rare that they all happily give orders to express the connotation of Buddhist teachings and philosophy of life through rich and varied calligraphy.

The book is accompanied by concise text to clearly introduce the source of the calligraphers and the good words, so that readers can appreciate the calligraphy and understand the philosophy of self-cultivation and purify the soul. This book won the "Hong Kong Best Printed Book Award" in 1993.
