In 1993, Master Sheng Yen transmitted the Dharma to Dr. John Crook, a British national, who vowed to practice the Master’s teachings and sow the seeds of Chinese Buddhism in Europe. Practitioners in Poland invited Master Sheng Yen to give guidance on Chan practice for the first time in 1997. Twenty years on, these Polish disciples have continued to practice diligently under the guidance of Ven. Chi Chern and Dr. Simon Child, constantly honing their faith in Chan teachings.
Since his childhood Master Sheng Yen and his practice had always been inspired by Guanyin Bodhisattva. He established Dharma Drum Mountain as a “Dharma center dedicated to Guanyin Bodhisattva,” and often urged people to recite Guanyin Bodhisattva’s name, pray to Guanyin Bodhisattva, emulate and act like Guanyin Bodhisattva. Therefore, we produced this Master Sheng Yen Guided by Guanyin Bodhisattva motion picture series, with the first episode tracing back to the Master’s childhood and how he was first inspired by the Bodhisattva and thus aspired to emulate his compassion and wisdom.
Chinese people consider Guanyin Bodhisattva as the closest Bodhisattva to them. According to Lotus Sutra and Great compassion Dharani Sutra, it is an easy and encouraging practice to recite his holy name, which brings to mind of kind compassion or loving-kindness. He responds to all requests for help, and relieves people’s suffering when they recite his name and prays sincerely
