Sharing the international trend of spiritual development

At 2 p.m. on November 12, former Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Defense and an international strategic expert, Prof. Lin Zhongbing, was invited to the Xinguang (“spiritual light”) Lecture Hall at the City Branch of Zhaiming Monastery, Taoyuan, to share his views in regards the development of international affairs, based on years of observations. He talked about the revival of spirituality, currently a rising trend in the world, which corresponds to the idea of the Protecting the Spiritual Environment campaign that Dharma Drum Mountain has long since been promoting.

The trend can be observed in scientists, corporate management styles, and in terms of rapidly changing international geopolitics. His talk offered some 100 participants a broad perspective about the global movement on spiritual renaissance.
