Tzu Chi Foundation

Tzu Chi Foundation was established in 1966 in Taiwan under the direction of Dharma Master Cheng Yen. Four different missions caring for the needy, medical mission, education and humanism were rolled out since then, and it took one decade for each mission to become established in our society. The missions are the core of Tzu Chi Buddhism in Action philosophy. These missions have attracted many people both Buddhists and non-Buddhists to follow the path of Buddhism in Action worldwide. In the current fifth decades, Dharma Master Cheng Yen teaching continue to adopt Buddha’s original teachings contain in the script originated from 2000 years ago. Shakyamuni Buddha tells us—because living beings’ heart are full of greed, hatred and ignorance, our heart and mind make us take the action and every action we take has its consequences;  The action of each and every one of us has the collective impact and consequences—Dharma Master Cheng Yen reiterates: since untraceable time, mundane have accumulated many impurities in the hearts. Our mind is like a mirror which has layers of dust and impurities settled on it, this mirror can no longer reflect objects clearly, no longer shows us life’s true principles; we confuse right and wrong, and do improper things and create the negative karma. Dharma master Cheng Yen painstakingly delivers her answer to this challenges by telling us that the only way we can save the world is to transform the hearts and minds of humanity, to purify our heart by spiritual practice conjoint with Buddhism in Action to remove karma and increasing spiritual lives.
