Seminar 4 The Mission of Medicine

An Angel's Tears...

"(Tzu Chi) Nurses are White Angels who wipe away their own tears...."


"....what makes the White Angels more moving is that they never forget their duty, which is the basic Buddhist Principle: "I always hear the sufferings and offer help the first." 


They always place patients before themselves. 


Thus although nurses do cry, they will always try to gain control over their emotions, not break down in front of their patients, and fulfill their duties diligently....


....what strength keeps them going?  There is a deeper meaning value underneath, and this is what we need to explore more...."
