20170528深切託付救病苦Harboring Love and Gratitude in Practicing Medicine

In the past six years (of medical school), the help we received was tremendous. Not only professors guided us with great dedication, total strangers also bequested their bodies to help us learn. Sometimes I wonder why we’ve received so many well wishes and help from others.

How do we reciprocate their well wishes and help? So, from now on, we will turn their well wishes into the motivation for our medical practice and treat each patient with great care. I am very happy to see this group of future doctors. When I placed the stethoscopes around your necks, I was thinking that your shoulders carry my great wish, as in the future, many people in sickness will need you, who are about to graduate and enter the medical profession.

When treating patients whose suffering needs your mindfulness and love, you need to reach out your hands to help them just like I reached out mine to place the stethoscopes around your necks. (At those moments) I really wanted to tell you, “Your shoulders must be strong in order to take up the responsibility of caring for people in suffering and transforming their sickness into health and sorrow into happiness.”

These are my great expectation of you. I want to thank the parents for trusting Tzu Chi’s education system. Your child chose to study medicine and shoulder the great responsibility of caring for patients in the world. This is possible because of your support.

I also want to thank teachers and professors for their dedication. I’ve heard many times from the chancellor, professors, and superintendents praise, “Our students are pure-hearted, and they study hard. Each of them has high aspirations.” I often hear them praise you.

In the national medical licensing exam this time, you’ve passed and ranked among the top. I hope that even though getting high scores is very important, as it shows your studiousness, what’s even more important is that as you entering your internship you need to learn from doctors in the hospitals.

When doctors teach you how to practice with love in a clinical setting, you must respect and learn from them. In the past, you’ve learned so much from your teachers. In the future, when you work in a hospital, you must be grateful to the doctors for they give of themselves to treat patients while dedicating their efforts to teaching you.

You have to mindfully learn from them. They are role models not only because of their skills but also their heartwarming love for patients. When meeting patients, a doctor’s good image can start healing process psychologically. The kindness and loving care of doctors are the best medicine for patients.

Therefore, having kindness and expressing love are both very important. After graduation, you will enter a hospital to practice in the profession you have been aspiring to. The moment of realizing your dream is right in front of you. However, it entails a lot of hard work. In Tzu Chi, we don’t think it as hard work but blessing (because) being able to serve others is the most blessed, especial when we serve with sincerity.

When patients are struggling to live, they suffer pain in their bodies as well as fear in their hearts. If you can alleviate the pain in their bodies and ease their fear in their hearts, to them, you give them a second chance to life. In Buddhism, this is call creating merits. It is also an act of kindness. An act of kindness can create merits. This is something that you’ve learned to do. Your aspiration of serving people has come true.

In fact, your becoming a doctor can help these in suffering. In doing so, the merits created by you will also go to your parents. Hence, you‘re repaying the kindness of your parents. When you have become a doctor and devote to serving humanity, this is your greatest accomplishment, the greatest honor to your parents, and the greatest comfort to your teachers. This is repaying the kindness of your parents and teachers.

Serving patients is repaying the kindness of all living beings. Indeed, there are a lot of people supporting you here. Right from the start of your medical program, Tzu Chi moms and dads have been giving you love and support like a family. For all these years, they have been with you to give you genuine support.

So, you have to always remember that those with gratitude are the ones with most love in their hearts. Those with most love make meaning out of their life by carrying out acts of kindness rather than just talking about it.

Students, I sincerely give you my blessings, I also thank Tzu Chi moms and dads for their loving support. I also thank the parents for their successful parenting. And I thank all the professors. I would like to also ask the doctors to continue guiding the students, as their teachers and serving as the role of a father to support you continuously.

So, you must exhibit the spirit of learning, strive towards your goal in life, and study hard as learning never stops.

Take the oath of service: When I practice medical practice, I solemnly swear to dedicate myself to serve all mankind. I will take the health of my patients as mu utmost top priority. I will, to the best of my ability, uphold the hospital’s honor and noble tradition.
