20170630守護生命擴大愛 Broadening Our Heart to Create Blessings

I have witnessed our volunteers’ firm commitment to Tzu Chi and how they care for their local community. In Xindian District, Taipei, because of everyone dedication, earnestness, and forming good affinity with people, we have the good affinity to have this land. This land has saved many people’s lives. In the beginning, we encountered many difficulties, such as finding doctors. It was truly not easy! Going through all these years, we can say that we are blessed.

We are fortunate to have Supt. Chao. He is very mindful. When we first met, he spoke about his vision for our hospital and what he would like to accomplish. He told me that he wanted to take good care of the Tzu Chi family members. Of course, besides caring for the health of Tzu Chi volunteers, doctors’ responsibility is to safeguard lives and protect people’s health with love. That’s the goal of our hospital.

There are a lot of sufferings in the world, and sickness is the worst of all. We established our medical mission to relieve people’s sufferings. Seeing our medical team giving of themselves sincerely and selflessly, not only were medical personnel moved, I was also much moved.

Our volunteers serve as hospital volunteers and become the bridge of communication between patients and doctors. With their help, our hospitals show Tzu Chi’s values and spirit. I am truly grateful and moved. With sincerity, uprightness, good faith and honesty, we sincerely vowed to deliver all living beings.

With a heart of sincerity, we wish to alleviate people’s sufferings. We have achieved doing the right thing. So, we need to continue doing it for time to come. To have our missions carried out perpetually, we need to be upright. With an upright mind, we can eliminate all of our afflictions. Even though we hold different views and opinions, we all share one goal and have the correct direction.

With uprightness and the same goal, there won’t be a lot of afflictions and ignorance. To get rid of our ignorance, we must have an upright mind. Some people may be capable, but they also have to harbor a heart of great compassion and be gentle and forbearing. Being gentle means one should humble oneself be grateful to others all the time and respect others’ opinions, so that everyone can work joyfully.

Thus, having an upright mind is not closing our heart. Even though we have compassion and are willing to volunteer with Tzu Chi, if we keep our heart closed, our heart will be very limited. Only when we open our heart can we embrace the world. Therefore, we have to open our heart.

We have to eliminate all our afflictions and learn the Dharma. We need to have faith in the Buddha’s teachings. It is very important to listen to my Dharma talks and then practice the Dharma in daily life and in our interactions with others. We can’t help others if we don’t have the Dharma. We must learn the Dharma and use the teachings to help others. To do this, we need to have correct faith. We must have faith in the Dharma and use it in our daily life.

We should broaden our horizon. If we keep to ourselves and regard our views as absolute and argue with others that we are right, we won’t see others’ good points. Then, our views will be biased.

All in all, learning the Dharma broaden our heart and strengthen our faith, so that we can connect with others and be accommodating. Only then can we gain blessings. All our volunteers are creating blessings in the world. I’m creating blessings. You are also creating blessings. You and I together can multiply our blessings

If we only see ourselves right and do what we want to do, some people will have different views and won’t agree with us. Then, we cannot further our blessings or let others create blessings with us. Hence, we should combine everyone’s strength and blessings. So, we should have correct faith, be accommodating to others, and help others based on the Dharma. These are all essential.

We want to attain Buddhahood, but without practicing the six paramitas, how can we attain Buddhahood? If we want to fulfill the conditions for attaining Buddhahood, we have to practice the six paramitas. To practice the six paramitas is to deliver all living beings. If we don’t inspire and help our fellow Tzu Chi volunteers, how do we do that for strangers?

This time, some overseas Tzu Chi volunteers came to Taiwan and they saw the solemn Jing Si Hall in Xindian. The whole building was very clean and comfortable. The Jing Si Hall in Xindian was very inspiring to them. Moreover, they brought back with them what they had learned in Taiwan.

The Jing Si Hall is solemn because local volunteers keep it dignified. It is also a ground for spiritual cultivation to inspire people. So, we need to be grateful to volunteers for cleaning this place and keeping it dignified to inspire people at all times. When people visit the place, their hearts can be purified as the Jing Si Hall serves as a place that can inspire people.

Having this Jing Si Hal in Xindian, we ought to cherish this blessing. Tzu Chi is in its fifty-second year, and we will pass on Tzu Chi’s values and spirit here. I hope that more people can visit here so that they will know Tzu Chi’s history and understand how Tzu Chi has been serving Taiwan and local communities. This is how we spread our Jing Si Dharma lineage and broaden the Tzu Chi Path.

As the first generation of Jing Si disciples, we should think about making good use of the Jing Si Hall in Xindian and its exhibitions to pass on our Dharma lineage. The longer our Dharma Lineage exists, the broader Tzu Chi Path will be. We need to be mindful in doing this.
