Hsinhsing Monastery, one of DDM’s branching monasteries, derived its name from the Dharma, signifying “faith, aspiration, and deportment”.

Life is full of risks; there are risks in politics, industry and commerce, in the workplace, and even in the family. If we are prepared to face risk at all times, with no need to get excited or panicky no matter what happens, and don’t feel surprised when something good or bad happens, this is called “ ordinary mind.”

This ordinary mind corresponds to no-mind and is similar to original face. Ordinary mind does not think about gains or losses, about having more or less, of being a success of a failure; it is only concerned about doing what can or should be done. After undertaking something, if problems occur, one keeps a cool head and deals with the crisis with ease.
Dr. Vandara Shiva, the global renowned philosopher, the practitioner of environmentalism and the founder of Navdanya Foundation, visited Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts, DILA, and gave a special talk on the hot issue of “The Future of Sustainable Agriculture “on May 10th.

Over 200 followers and devotees of eco-friendly agriculture came to join from island wide.
