Blessing for 2021 from Abbot President, Ven. Guo Huei

Blessing from Dharma Drum Mountain for 2021

People all wish to live a life of peace and well-being, but how do we find the inner tranquility and attain the true happiness of ease and peace, in this constantly changing world?

Having chosen "Peace and Ease" as its annual theme for the year 2021, Dharma Drum Mountain wants to encourage the general public to always treat others with compassion, thereby being at peace at all times; and apply wisdom to bring peace to themselves, thereby having freedom wherever they go. Also, we should keep an even mind in looking at all the favorable and undesirable situations, as well as the gains and losses in life, while applying a mind of empathy, tolerance, and loving care to safeguard each other and show concern for all sentient beings.

Through this film, let us learn the Buddhist wisdom of living an unobstructed life inspired by Master Sheng Yen's words of Dharma, and, also, we'd like to invite everyone to make a resolution to be the master of our own mind, transforming our adversity into true compassion and insight for the benefit of self and others, thereby living a life of brightness, enjoying peace and ease.
