The state of one's mind tends to be susceptible to temptations and stimulations in the external environment, thus creating emotional fluctuations ranging from uneasy feelings to severe loss of equanimity. If one employs the safeguard of protecting the spiritual environment when situations arise, one can simply maintain calmness and inner stability, or go deeper to become free and at ease.

Nung Chan Monastery
With Joined Palms
Compete neither against yourself, nor with others!

At 8 a.m. on November 4, Nung Chan Monastery kicked off its first “Water-Moon Chan Run” at the booming sounds of the drum. This event, which included sitting meditation session and walking meditation activity, also attracted participants from Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, who made a special trip to join and witness this innovative way of “meditation in sports” in Taiwan. The some 600 runners found the process a most rewarding experience in itself.
Social and environmental phenomena such as low birth rate, aging population, unequal distribution of wealth, extreme weather from climate change, disruptive innovation and more are breeding anxiety and unrest in our modern lives. How can DDM fulfill its role as a stabilizing force in society?
Seeing All Sentient Beings in One Single Person

At 2 p.m. on October 29, DDM’s Zaiming Monastery City Branch organized a meeting to introduce the Master Sheng Yen's Chronicle. The guest speakers included Ven. Guo Xian, director of DDM Cultural Center, and Lin Qixian, an associate professor at National Pingdong University and author and editor of the book. Along with over 170 participants, they together used the opportunity to remember the Master’s teachings, thoughts, words of wisdom and actions of compassion.
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.
In 2007, Master Sheng-Yen proposed campaigns on the “Six Ethics of the Mind” to herald in a new era.

Focusing on the protection of the spiritual environment, the campaign encompasses six domains: family, life, school, environment, workplace as well as ethnic groups.

For the past ten years, in close collaboration with the Dharma Drum Fellowship system and its branching monasteries, the DDM Humanities and Social Improvement Foundation (HSIF) has developed multiple ways to vigorously promote the “Six Ethics of the Mind Campaign”, adapting to social dynamics and changes. Here, the DDM takes pleasure in sharing with you, all the efforts made over the years and, the aspiration to promote the “Six Ethics of the Mind” in the future.
