The growing sprout of Tao in USA started from Elder Shih's spontaneous of thought. Many years ago, Elder Shih Chin-shin went to Brazil for Tao affairs. On his return trip to Taiwan, he stopped by Los Angeles. For several days, he stayed in Temple Host Zheng's residence. During these days, Elder Shih saw many Asian American resided in San Gabriel Valley (southern California). He told his associates:" I hope that we can spread and share Tao with all the people here." Everyone was inspired and motivated by his thoughts. Afterward, all gathered the funding and purchased a large house in Monterey Park. The holy temple was established and named Tienshin Temple.
Master Lin, Yin-wen
Master Lin Yin-wen was in assigned to be in charge of newly establishment of Tienshin Temple. Propagation of Tao eventually grew to 30 participants. In the later years, due to the old age of Master Lin, he returned to Taiwan. In 1990, Master Lou was assigned for the Tao mission in Tienshin Temple. Afterward, Master Liang and Master Wu Zong-fah also participated the Tao affairs for several years.
