Introduction

Lastest release date: Feb 12, 2015

「There is no one I do not love, there is no one I do not trust, and there is no one I do not forgive.」The aphorism comes from Dharma Master Cheng Yen who harbors a persistent soul of beauty and goodness. In 1966, Master Cheng Yen established Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation which practices the philosophy of relieving suffering, giving happiness, helping the poor, and educating the rich. For several decades, Tzu Chi Foundation has been growing under the Master’s loving and caring support. Nowadays, Tzu Chi people around the world reach out to the disaster areas, and relieve the suffering and agony of people in need. All the Master’s followers, uphold the vow to be bodhisattvas, carry out tasks with compassion and wisdom, and stand firmly to the grand will– that is to purify people’s heart and mind, bring peace and harmony to the society, and make the world free from disasters.
