In 1984, H.H. Living Buddha Lian-sheng, the founder of True Buddha School (TBS), instructed the late Master Lian Xuan to gather the TBS disciples in Singapore and establish a local cultivation venue. In 1986, Yuan Zheng Tang was officially registered as a society and this was Singapore’s first and only TBS Chapter at that time. The chapter was registered as Ling Xian Jing She Yuan Zheng Tang Mediation Center at Mangis Road.

In 1987, Yuan Zheng Tang moved to Andrew Road, then to Hougang Street 21, and relocated again to Level 5 at No. 9 Geylang Lorong 29. In 1993, the chapter was renamed as Yuan Zheng Tang of True Buddha School to reflect the TBS lineage. In 1998, Yuan Zheng Tang managed to purchase a freehold unit at Level 4 in the same building (No. 9 Geylang Lorong 29). The chapter shifted into the new unit during the tenth day of the sixth lunar month, which coincides with the birthday of Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava). With this establishment, Yuan Zheng Tang has secured a permanent cultivation venue which can host up to 300 people, for the TBS disciples in Singapore.

Since its establishment till today, Yuan Zheng Tang has always been upholding the values of TBS – Honor the Guru, Respect the Dharma, Cultivate Diligently – such that fellow practitioners can cultivate the True Buddha Tantra to perfection, until they attain complete bodhi (enlightenment). Every year, Yuan Zheng Tang organises one to two Dharma ceremonies for blessings, eradicating calamities, and bardo deliverance, which greatly benefits both human and nether realms.

On 13 Dec 2008, Yuan Zheng Tang had the honour of hosting the Kalachakra Ceremony personally presided over by H.H. Living Buddha Lian-sheng at the Singapore Expo Center. The event attracted a total of 60,000 devout believers locally and from all over the world.
