The Founder of Fo Guang Shan Grand Master Hsing Yun
In addition, nine art galleries, twenty-six libraries, more than three publishing houses, twelve bookstores, the Cloud and Water Mobile Clinic, over fifty Chinese language schools, sixteen Buddhist colleges, three Secondary Schools and four Universities have been established. A Children’s Home, Fo Guang Nursing Home and Fo Guang Shan Charity Trust were also established in 1970, 1975 and 1987 respectively to nurture the young. The Buddha’s Light Television network was established in 1997, and the first Buddhist daily newspaper ‘Merit Times’ was launched in 2000.
For more than a half century, Master Hsing Yun has devoted his efforts to transform the world through the practice of Humanistic Buddhism and to realise his vision, “Let Buddha’s light illuminate three thousand realms and Dharma water flow across the five continents”.
Learning Ch’an is to apply your own mind; so you must investigate and study the real self.
In the pursuit of learning, have a joyful attitude. In the face of advice, keep an open mind.
In taking on responsibility, have courage. In dealing with others, remain respectful.
