20170821濟弱扶傾再造福Giving Help to Those in Need to Create More Blessings

Universiade is now taking place in Taipei. Athletes from various countries have come to Taiwan to partake in this event with an open heart. This is also an honor for Taiwan.

We hope that everything goes smoothly and safely, and that all athletes from around the world will be able to complete their competitions safe and sound, and return to their countries, filled with happy memories of Taiwan. This will be most wonderful.

Besides harmony among people, we also pray for good weather, which is something that we’re worries about. Indeed, there are a lot of natural disasters in the world nowadays.

For instance, many south Asian countries, such as India, Bangladesh, and Nepal, are still troubled by floods. In Sierra Leone, three areas are severely affected by floods. In one area, many people lost their lives in mudslide. Life is indeed impermanent, and the land we live on is fragile. Life can be lost in an instant. With the climate so imbalanced now, we need to be more vigilant, sincere, and pious.

Men can never conquer Nature, but we can unite together to express our piety. I hope, with our sincere piety and pure heart, we can nurture compassion and loving-kindness. This is the only way to have a world free of disasters.

Two days ago on Saturday, we held prayer concerts in the National Chung Cheng University in Chiayi. This was a gathering of love. I am really grateful for this. Why do we hold these concerts? It’s to bring people together and inspire love in them.

Performing artists including singers and actors came from Taipei to perform. Professor Song, a physician, also sang on stage. I’m very grateful to our Da Ai TV for making this event possible. Each performance reminded people to be vigilant and to live with sincere piety. When seeing suffering in the world, and count our blessings. We must live with vigilant care and sincere piety.

We must also be grateful that we are safe and well. Besides cherishing our blessing, we need to create blessings. When seeing suffering, count, cherish, and create blessings.

A small donation can help many people. The most important is do so with sincerity. There were three concerts in one day. Even though it’s just for one day, the preparations for the concerts took weeks. Participants practiced and rehearsed over and over again. Tzu Chengs from Yunlin and Chiayi were very dedicated in rehearsing. The volunteer in charge of instructing others was so dedicated that he continued to practice even after his wrist was inflamed and his feet developed blisters.

They practiced the movements very well. They were in unity with their movements. Such unison came from putting time and effort into practice. Supt. Lai and many doctors of the Dalin Tzu Chi Hospital also participated in the performance. About 50 hospital staff stayed after work to rehearse. When researching, it was not only to bring their movements in unity but also bring out their religious spirit.

Also, Supt. Chien of the Taichung Tzu Chi Hospital is in the drum team. They gave three performances in one day. We really look forward to kindhearted people giving a little to help people in suffering.

Just by gibing a little won’t affect their own life. But, with just a little, they can really help people all over the world. There are many people suffering in the world waiting for us to give them a little strength so that they can turn their life around and have some support to be on their feet again.

Just by giving a little, they can start a new life. It’s like the bone marrow of our body. For blood cancer patients, by giving them a little bit of bone marrow, they’ll be able to produce blood on their own. Our body works this way.

It’s the same with Mother Nature. For people who are suffering, by giving them a little help, they are able to transform their life and get back on their feet again. Take the example of Syrian students in Turkey. Volunteer Alaadin Zican, “We got scholarship from Tzu Chi, we decided to do something good in these special days. Planned ourselves to ten groups, and visited around 50 families from the poorest citizens in Sultan Gazy.” Syrian refugee child Abdul Aziz, “I want to go to school, I don’t want to work. If I don’t go to school, I have no future.”

“If you get the chance to go to school, you must study hard every day, Can you do it?” Syrian refugee child Mohamad, “Yes, I can.”
“What do you want to say?" Syrian refugee child Mohamad, “I want to help my dad.” Volunteer Mohamana Nour,” We are grateful to have the opportunity to participate in these visits. Seeing these families struggling, I feel sad. But, I believe there’s love in the world. I am grateful that they show me suffering so I learn to cherish my blessings even more.”

While the Syrian children are growing up, we give them warmth and care to let them know that hatred won’t solve their problem. Otherwise, they won’t have love nor hope. we need to eliminate hatred in these children’s hearts, plant seeds of kindness in them, and let them know that there are many kindhearted people around the world helping them. This is to nurture their gratitude, develop goodness, love, and wisdom in them. By giving them an education, they learn to be compassionate and sensible. All these are very important. This is the power of love.

We also see volunteers from Germany who went to Serbia to care for the refugees. When Tzu Chi volunteers saw refugees wearing worn-out shoes, they quickly bought slippers for them. There are so many refugees at the borders. Because of the unrest in their country, they left their country and dispersed in many countries. In the same way, Tzu Chi volunteers have been dedicated to helping refugees in other countries.

Tzu Chi volunteers in Canada have told me that they have been helping Syrian refugees who have gone to Canada. All in all, there are many people in suffering. When a country is safe and well, it is a blessing. We should live every day with gratitude.
