On Oct 21, 2018, a Puyuma Express (普悠瑪) derailed near Xinma Station in Suao, Yilan, (宜蘭蘇澳新馬站), killing at least 18 people and injuring nearly 200.

Venerable Chang-Fa (常法法師), Director of DDM Lanyang Branch Monastery, along with local volunteers immediately went to visit the crash site and gave solace to those sent to hospitals. Volunteers also provided a deathbed chanting service for the deceased, at Suao Branch of Taipei Veterans General Hospital (台北榮總蘇澳分院).
At the invitation of Dharma Drum Mountain (DDM), Zarko Andricevic, one of the Western Dharma Heirs of DDM’s Founder, Master Sheng Yen, and the Founder of Dharmaloka in Croatia, led a 7-day Bilingual Silent Illumination Chan Retreat at DDM World Center for Buddhist Education on September 23-30, 2018.


More than 130 practitioners enthusiastically partook in the retreat, of which about half were foreigners, coming from the US, the UK, Germany, France, Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mainland China and Hong Kong; as well as many local Taiwanese participants.

Sutras-transcription and group practice increases merits;
To enclose to the Dharma brings a calm mind!


Let’s Write!! Sutra-transcription!

In the “Tattvārtha” chapter of the Yogācārabhūmi Treatise <瑜伽真實義品> truth is called “reality” (S. tattva; C. zhenshi). Four broad categories of reality are discussed:
Who was I, before I was born?"

Hua-tou, which means asking a sentence without special meaning. Yet you need to ask this sentence all the time, for example, “What is Wu (Non-Being)”, “Who is the one that was reciting the Amitabha Buddha’s name?”
In collaboration with Columbia University, Sheng Yen Education Foundation has established the world’s first permanent Sheng Yen Professorship in Chinese Buddhist Studies in the U.S. in 2007. Ever since then, the worldwide visibility and public understanding of Chinese Buddhism has continued to develop, including other universities.

Looking back at the accomplishments made over the past 12 years, four senior officers from Columbia University were brought closer to Master Sheng Yen and Dharma Drum Mountain during their visit to Sheng Yen Foundation on Aug 14, 2018. They aspired to cooperation between the two sides to jointly propagate Chinese Buddhism studies and develop its global communications.
“Well-adorned is a peacock with splendid feathers, yet it is no better than a goose that can fly long distances; Wealth and power a common person may possess, yet such blessings pale in comparison with those of the ordained.”

At 10 a.m. on September 2, the sounds of the bell and drum resonated across Dharma Drum Mountain World Center for Buddhist Education. More than 3,000 representatives of monastic and lay practitioners of DDM from home and abroad participated in the succession ceremony of the sixth abbot president of DDM, which was broadcast online in real time. In the ceremony “Inheriting the Past and Inspiring the Future,” participants celebrated the inaugural of Ven.
