20171111點滴聚愛心大富Spiritual Riches of the Heart

I will be donating this bag of corn flour. I don’t have much of it, so it’s only a small bag. It’s the same with laundry detergent. We will give a little bit of it to our care recipients. When we bring the detergent, we will also help them wash their clothes.

You don’t have much income yourself, why do you want to be a Tzu Chi volunteer?

Although I am poor, there are others who are poorer than me. If I help those people, God will bless me. Moreover, whether I receive anything from it, I want to help those who need help.

I am very touched by our local volunteers in Africa. Although they are poor and lack material goods, they are not defeated by poverty. They bring forth their love to help people in need. They don’t have a lot of food, but they are willing to eat a bit less, of forego a meal, to help other people.

By accumulating small bits of effort to help others, they become the richest among the poor. I am very touched.

We should care for and look after each other. We always bear a heart to help others. When there’s food to eat, we eat to be 80% full. We save the 20% to help those in need.

Their spiritual riches is really touching. When locals aspire to become Tzu Chi volunteers and are willing to serve, they can enroll in Tzu Chi’s training program. When they have completed the first stage of the program, they can register for the next training course.

During the course of training, they have to transform themselves by upholding precepts and learn the Dharma. The volunteers are truly very diligent.

Even though they cannot understand the language I speak, they are very sincere and very diligent. For many years, they have persisted in learning the Dharma through multiple layers of translation. They take the English subtitles of the Wisdom at Dawn program and translated it into the local language.

Despite this, the volunteers have taken the essence of the teachings to heart. They accept the teachings. After they learn the Dharma, they put it into practice. It is very touching.

Tzu Chi’s local volunteers in seven countries in Africa all have touching stories. Some places lack resources and volunteers don’t even have chairs to sit, such as Mozambique. A Taiwanese entrepreneur, Mr. Chen, donated a plot of land to Tzu Chi. It has many mango trees. The volunteers take shade under the trees while sitting on the ground.

Although they don’t understand Taiwanese, they are able to sit for many hours just to listen to my teachings. Through translation, they accepted the teachings and found it to be useful when applied in life, which changed their life direction. They even turned my teachings of the sutra into skits and presented them.

They presented a skit on the great white ox cart, as well as the adaptation of the Sutra of Profound Gratitude to Parents. They use stories of local volunteers in the skits. It is truly remarkable. They take my teachings to heart. It is quite touching. Do they understand my teachings? They do.

Not only do they take the teachings deeply to heart, they also practice them in life. I am very touched by them. They are very pious. They can do this because of their unwavering faith. This group of volunteers were inspired by Denise Tasi, a Taiwanese who married a Mozambican. After living there for a few years, she wondered why she married so far away from home. After learning about Tzu Chi’s work, she felt compelled to do something. So, she went to South Africa to learn from the volunteers there. The local Tzu Chi volunteers in South Africa gladly agreed to help her. This is why they travelled to Mozambique to help her.

In the beginning, they met many difficulties, but slowly, they inspired many locals to be volunteers. After many years, the volunteers developed unwavering faith to walk the Bodhisattva Path. They is why I am very touched by them, these volunteers who are so far away.

Tomorrow at 9 PM, Da Ai TV will air stories about volunteers in Africa; they will air them in several parts. This documentary took 45 days to shoot, and it will enable us to see their way of life and how they remain firm to their aspirations. They are truly living bodhisattvas.

Although they are materially poor, they are spiritually rich. Despite having difficulties, they still carry out “peaceful practices”. Their stories are truly touching. All in all, there are many touching stories.

Because volunteers cherish this land, they continuously give of themselves to protect it. We see many female volunteers protecting our Earth. They drive on dangerous roads in the mountain and make several trips throughout the day to collect recyclables. It is truly touching.

With love and care, we should join our efforts together, and give Great Love to the world. With mindfulness and love, we comfort people in need and pave the path inch by inch to make it smooth so that we can all be in harmony. I am very touched.
