Master Sheng Yen said, “Nung Chan Monastery is the origin of Dharma Drum Mountain. Without the Monastery, Dharma Drum Mountain would not exist.” This Between the Teacher and Disciple motion picture series was produced to allow more people to understand the spirit of DDM as it was first established. With narrations and dialogues and refined painting style, the series illustrates the early history of DDM. Its first episode traces back to 1965 when Venerable Master Dong Chu bought a plot of farmland in the Guandu Plain and started the practice of Chan in farming by modeling Chan master Baizhang in the Tang Dynasty.
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.
