Vimalakirti Sutra addresses the core ideas of Mahayana including Pure Land, Non-Duality, and the Bodhisattva Path. Vimalakirti penetrated thoroughly into the doctrines and remained neither attached nor detached in worldly life. Using his own illness as opportunities to deliver inconceivable liberation in accordance with the karmic roots of ordinary people, Sravakas, and Bodhisattvas, he created the reserved pure land in everyone's mind.
Venerable Chang Chi graduated from Dharma Drum Sangha University (DDMSU) in Taiwan, studying Chinese Chan Buddhism. Currently, he is the Vice President for Academic Affairs of DMMSU. Before that, he was a lecturer in Chan Hall of the DDM headquarter, DDM Meditation Activity Department, and DDMSU.
