20171120傳承法髓注新血Inspiring New Volunteers to Continue Tzu Chi’s Work

Tzu Chi volunteer Pan Liao Ye, “In 1992, my donating member in Nangang said to me, “Sister Pan, the husband of my neighbor, Jinluan, suddenly passed away due to Fulminant Hepatitis.

After that, she can’t get over it and cries at home all the time. It’s like she doesn’t want to live anymore. After learning of the situation, I told Sister Jinluan, He didn’t mean to abandon you and the kids.

He worried his children the most because they have lost their father. So, the most important thing for you now is to live and be strong. Jinluan, how did you feel at the time?”

Tzu Chi volunteer Ong Jinluan, “It gave me strength.”

Tzu Chi volunteer Pan Liao Ye, “Why did you start recruiting donating members?”

Tzu Chi volunteer Ong Jinluan, “I want to reciprocate your help. So, I joined the fundraising work.”

Tzu Chi volunteer Pan Liao Ye, “People like her who is shy interacted with others because she wanted to reciprocate. So, she went to recruit donating members and became a commissioner.

Later, she recruited her daughter-in-law. This is her daughter-in-law, who was inspired to be a volunteer. Jinluan also inspired her two colleagues in the office to be certified.”

We see the volunteer Ms. Pan-Liao Ye. To help Jinluan, she accompanied her with sincerity and helped her overcome her grief. Jinluan is a wise person as she knows to repay people’s kindness.

The best way to reciprocate, she said, was to recruit donating members for Tzu Chi. This is the first time I heard of it, I was very touched. Because of this, she inspired many of her donating members to become volunteers.

Many people were inspired by Jinluan, and Jinluan was inspired by Pan-Liao Ye. People inspired by Jinluan went on to inspire others. When they visited Tzu Chi in Hualien, they needed transportation. That was the “Tzu Chi Express”.

Tzu Chi volunteer Pan Liao Ye, “At that time, we took them on the Express. I bought the train tickets for her; she invited over ten colleagues from her office to visit Hualien. We were all keen in accompanying our donating members.

Coincidentally, before the trip, I was asked to join an international disaster relief mission. I thought, “oh no, I need to take donating members to Hualien and Jinluan is so shy, but now I got this mission overseas. What should I do?”

Then, on the day of the trip, and I went to Taipei Main Station to accompany the 12 of them to Yilan. Then, I rushed back from Yilan by train to catch another train to the airport. And, on the train to Yilan, I introduced Tzu Chi to them, and asked volunteers I know on the train to help take care of Jinluan and the group.”

Tzu Chi volunteer Ong Jinluan, “We were all very touched.”

Tzu Chi volunteer Pan Liao Ye, “I feel that back in the days, when we accompanied donating members, we were all very mindful. Like Master said, when we accompany donating members, we hope to be their family’s wholesome friends.

So, we shouldn’t underestimate anyone’s strength. See, people as shy as her can serve as a commissioner, and accompany others. So, this is how we commissioner inspires many people.”

See, that was what commissioners did in order to accompany and inspire their donating members to visit Tzu Chi in Hualien. So, Tzu Chi commissioners inspired and recruited new volunteers with sincerity.

Senior commissioners passed on Tzu Chi’s spirit and values. I believe for our charity mission, our power of love will continue. Our sincere love and compassion will never end.

Our sincere love and compassion will never end. It will be ever-lasting. I’m very touched by this. We also see Tzu Chi volunteers care for each other. Look at our senior volunteer, a commissioner from the early days in Hualien.

Her badge number is 16. Look at these photos. She has kept older records of Tzu Chi well. This is not easy. She is in her nineties, and yet she is still passing on Tzu Chi’s spirit and values.

We should care for senior Tzu Chi volunteers more and inspire more young volunteers to join Tzu Chi, so we can continue Tzu Chi’s work in Taiwan. In the Ksitigarbha Sutra, the Buddha spoke of those who are already on the Bodhisattva Path, those who are about to be on this path, and those who have yet to be on this path.

Volunteers who are present here are already on the Bodhisattva Path, including the senior volunteers sitting in front of me. You are all the first-generation of Tzu Chi volunteers.

You are already on the Bodhisattva Path. You’ve all accepted Tzu Chi’s spirit and values and have been with me all these times. Tzu Chi’s missions of charity, medicine, education, and culture were established with our collective efforts.

We did not just establish them. We have been safeguarding them. We also see how time flies; how quickly children grow up. We saw a student, Mingkai, a recipient of our scholarship.

Tzu Chi volunteers have cared for his family since he was a high school student. Now, his mother has overcome her illnesses. Mingkai himself is energetic and optimistic.

Now, Mingkai is already in college and will graduate next year. He is a hardworking student. This is how Tzu Chi volunteers give with love. Not only do they do charity work, they also provide tuition assistance.

Currently, we are carrying out relief work in Mexico. Although we haven’t held an aid distribution, our spirit and power of love have already been spread in Mexico.

We’ve already held many training sessions for the locals. They heard how Tzu Chi volunteers sincerely care for others and give of themselves with love.

They also learned that life is full of suffering, and the most valuable thing in life is not material resources, but sincere love. The locals could tell that our sincere love is priceless.

They were so touched that they were inspired to be people who are willingly help others with their sincerest love. This is how we inspire the local people.

So, more and more people have joined us. Although some of them are affectees, they wish they can be the ones who help others. Therefore, volunteers, our charity work can be done meticulously and accurately.

Our aid may help their country and the whole society. Seeing this, we feel that our initial aspiration is truly important. Volunteers, you are like me; without your initial aspirations, Tzu Chi would not be what it is today.

We should pass on Tzu Chi’s spirit and values. Can we do this? Yes. Good. Thank you, and please doing Tzu Chi’s work with love and mindfulness. We need to take care of our senior volunteers, and recruit young volunteers and guide them. I give you my blessing. Thank you.
