Welcoming and Embracing the year of 2018 -
DDM wish you A Year of Peace and Freedom from Troubles!
At 11.50 p.m. on February 6, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake hit Hualien, on Taiwan’s east coast, damaging many buildings and causing some in the city of Hualien to cave in or tilt. The public shows their care and love for the affected, especially as the Chinese Lunar New Year in nearing. Dharma Drum Mountain Social Welfare and Charity Foundation immediately mobilized volunteers in the Hualien area and organized relief efforts, while keeping constant contact with local authorities to assess the needs for required personnel and material.
Peace and Freedom from Troubles:

By ceasing bad acts and doing good deeds, our heart will be at peace.

By embracing the world with equanimity,
we will be free from troubles.


DDM Abbot President Venerable Guo Dong would like to wish you a happy new year, with peace, well-being, and prosperity.

2017 has become history. Over the past year,the results we’ve worked hard to cultivate will not go in vain. They’ll prove to be a solid foundation for us to walk towards the coming year. We should cherish and harbor gratitude for what we already have as a foundation, without feeling any attachment or regret.

The best mindset to welcome the New Year is to return to zero. This state of zero requires us to live in the present moment,starting from afresh. “Zero” also symbolizes the pure and perfect wisdom. Therefore, we say “to live in the moment is to experience buddha in the present.”

If we can have a moment of purity in thought, we’ll instantly experience the perfect wisdom in that single thought-moment, and in the meantime live in the pure land.

Traditionally, the custom of Lunar New Year greetings is a way for people to express their wishes and greet each other during the Lunar New Year, conveying the message of leaving the past behind to welcome a better future.
The Chinese New Year or the Spring Festival is one of the three major festivals celebrated by those of Chinese descent. (The other two are the Dragon Boat as well as the Mid-Autumn Festivals.) Celebration begins on the eve of the New Year and ends with the Lantern Festival.
On Dec 22th – 23th, 2017, at GIS NTU Convention Center in Taipei city, Sheng Yen Education Foundation held the “Third Forum of Buddhist Education”, in accordance with the founder of Dharma Drum Mountain, Master Sheng Yen’s aspiration to propagate quality Buddhism learning, offering a chance for collective insights from fourteen representatives of academic and religious fields of Buddhist Education.
During the Chinese Lunar New year holidays, it is a traditional custom that people pay respects to Buddha and attend Buddhist prayer rituals in Buddhist temples with their whole family, praying for the blessing from Buddhas and hoping for peace and success in the coming new year.
To cultivate talent through loving care, and to encourage children at disadvantage who still strive for achievements. DDM held its 31st Reward Ceremony of “Talent Scholarship.”

Chan and Pure Land both are sensible paths of dharma practice. Even during the process of practice, one can readily reap plenty of benefits for the body and mind. In the past, there have been much misconception by many, that since the goal of practicing Chan is enlightenment, without enlightenment all efforts are in vain; and that since the goal of practicing Pure Land is to cut off the cycle of birth and death, before one reaches the pure land of ultimate bliss [sukhavati], who knows what, if any, effect there is.

Actually, whether you practice Chan or Pure Land, you can get benefits everywhere, any time in your daily life. And you can become enlightened as well as reach the Pure Land. Those who are enlightened definitely would be able to be born in the Pure Land. Those who have not yet been enlightened but have vowed to be reborn in the Pure Land would be able to be born in the Pure Land, while those born in the Pure Land definitely would become enlightened.
