20171201發心立願鋪大道To Devote Ourselves to Paving the Bodhisattva Path

We have many newly certified volunteers here for their certification today, thanks to the senior volunteers for accompany them to Taiwan on this journey. However, it is not enough to just accompanying them until they are certified. From now on, the senior volunteers must share their experiences with them, and always provide care and support.

Once joining Tzu Chi, everyone should be united. We should be of one heart and one mind. That is the meaning of unity. From now on, everyone should emulate the Buddha’s heart and carry out my missions, share experiences, and encourage each other.

We also hear Tzu Chings from Singapore.

“Dear Grandmaster, your children have returned.”

This is the code phrase between the Tzu Chings and me. Tzu Chings have great potential. No matter which country they are from, they’ve completed their volunteer training, and at the certification ceremony, they will say to me, “Master, your children have returned.” Today, many Tzu Chings have returned.

These Tzu Chings have already started working. They have their businesses and their careers. Now they are aspired to help with Tzu Chi’s missions. They are ready to commit themselves to the missions as they are working. They are on a right direction in life.

When I hear them say they aspire to take on Tzu Chi’s responsibilities, I’m truly comforted. You are all the first-generation of Tzu Chi volunteers. Volunteers, now that you are certified, I want to tell you that we need to pay attention to the world around us and care about people in the world. As Tzu Chi volunteers, we need to care for all in the world, far and near, and give of ourselves.

It is the first generation of Tzu Chi volunteers who began serving as living bodhisattvas and carrying out the Buddha’s spirit by reaching out to people in need and help them. After you go back to your country of residence, I hope that, every one of you can inspire countless people to volunteer. Each second id the one and only second of your life; seize each second earnestly and take good care of your mind. Do not let your thoughts go astray at any moment; do not allow any second to be wasted.

In Tzu Chi, our view on religion is to provide people a life’s goal and a lifetime education, because learning is a never ending process. It is the same for life education. In joining Tzu Chi, we learn about religious cultivation and having a purpose in life. Apart from learning the teachings, we need to cultivate ourselves. We need to cultivate good conducts, and we should stay faithful to the teachings. This is the direction in Tzu Chi.

All in all, the goal of Tzu Chi is correct, and its teachings provide a correct lifelong education for everyone, one that is (so profound) that we’ll never learn all of it one lifetime Being born in this world, we don’t know where we are from nor where we are going. We are quite lost.

He even gambled away his mother’s grocery money and his father’s stock earnings. In the end, his wife left him also due to his gambling. From then on, he went about life without any purpose. One day, by chance, he walked into the Jing Si Hall. He has been with Tzu Chi ever since.

Thank you, Master. Thank you, my Tzu Chi brothers and sisters. Joining Tzu Chi changed my life. Thank you, Master, for creating Tzu Chi. I know now that one cannot wait to do good and be filial. I am grateful to my parents for having taken care of me. From now on, I will live up tp my filial duties and devote myself for alleviating other’s sufferings. Thank you.

His transformation is truly touching. He was so addicted to gambling that nothing else mattered to him. Yes, his confused life was completely transformed as soon as he joined Tzu Chi. He has been very diligent since the beginning, and is now a certified volunteer. Such awaking and thorough transformation does not come easy.

As we learn the Buddha’s teachings, we need to apply them in our life. This is the true way of learning the Dharma, and the Dharma is inseparable from our life. So, by practicing the Dharma in our life, we become living bodhisattvas.

The Buddha came to this world to teach people to walk the Bodhisattvas Path. The Buddha’s purpose of coming to this world was to teach people to walk the Bodhisattvas Path. We are fortunate to live in the times of Dharma and be able to help those who are in suffering. Every one of us should dedicate ourselves to alleviating people’s sufferings and then share the Dharma with them.

This is how we apply the teaching of the Sutra of Innumerable Meanings in our life. We are indeed fortunate. The Buddha’s teachings have been passed down for over 2,500 years. As we practice the Buddha’s teachings with a common understand, common consensus, and collective action on the Bodhisattvas Path how fortunate are we!

Everyone, we should cherish the direction of the Bodhisattvas Path. Bodhisattvas create the path, and people pave it. The sutra shows us life’s principles, pointing to us the right path to walk on. In create the path, we need to make sure the direction is correct, to pave a smooth path in the world.

I give my blessings to everyone. I hope everyone can aspire, make vows, and take action to practice what you have learned here in your country. Then you can inspire more people to walk the Bodhisattvas. I want to give my sincere blessing to you all and encourage you to be diligent every day, pave the path with love at all times, reach out to people to inspire them, and cultivate both blessing and wisdom. I give you my blessings. Thank you.
