Discussion Topics

  1. "Everyone, the Buddha-Dharma that we are learning is inseparable from everyday human life. This word "human" in "human life" sounds very simple. The Chinese character has only two strokes. Being human, we all have emotions. These feelings can be very warm and gentle. Unfortunately, this state of simplicity and gentleness can become most complicated and perilous."   In what ways can you share how walking the Tzu Chi Path guards us and protects us from our life becoming "complicated and perilous"?
  2. "We are the Buddha's disciples, so we absolutely must make strong vows. We must rely on His teachings. Since we have the teachings, since we have a path, we must follow them. Even if we sincerely believe in the teachings, we still must walk the path."  When we become a disciple of Master as Certified Volunteers, we take refuge in Master.  In so doing, are we casting away our own religions?  Our we casting away our own spiritual beliefs or traditions?  Please share your understandings, doubts or realizations.

  3. "We are not simply walking by ourselves, we must teach others to walk as well."  How does Group Study (like SNN and other formats) do this? Please share your thoughts...
