Discussion Topics

  1. Can our environments where we engage in our cultivation be improved? Do we have calmness…like Master feels at Dawn?
  2. Master discusses the true meaning of being enlightened as being able to thoroughly understand people, matters and truths.  When we learn about these, what happens to our perspective in life? What happens to our minds?
  3. Some have said… Buddhist philosophy teaches not to have any desires…hence, we should have no desire to attain Wisdom…or recruit Tzu Chi members…or take Action to improve other people’s lives… why is this deluded thinking?
  4. When Master tells us something, she asks us if we feel something…we say YES…she then replies “have you done it yet?”  Why is acting and experiencing so important in Tzu Chi?  Without this…what do we lose?
  5. How does Master display Gratitude to HER teacher?  What can we learn from this?
