2014 has been an interesting year. Everyday, every month was filled with different kind of stories, experience and people. Carefully observed, you must have met those kind of people that inspired you, gives you a new meaning of life. With this opportunity, I would like to introduce you to one person that really matters in my life and maybe in the future in your life too. This Person is the one that fulfill my spiritual needs. This Person is not only limited to one’s religion or spiritual point of view. This Person welcomed every kind of religions that exist in this world. This Person holds dear this world, everyday thinking about saving this world, everyday thinking about how to make this world a better world. Let me introduce you to Her.
Her name is Master Cheng Yen. She’s the founder of Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation. This Foundation never discriminates about religions, race and etc. This Foundation has been in more than 100 countries giving help and relief. This Foundation has its branch and offices in more than 53 countries. In fact, This Foundation is the first non-China Foundation that allowed in China. Master Cheng Yen often called “Mother Teresa of Asia”.
Before April 2014, what I can do is watching Master Cheng Yen gives a daily talk in TV or by reading the books She published. I have never dreamed of getting a chance of meeting him in person. But ! The opportunity really came. On April 2014, me and my family got a chance to visit Hua Lien, Taiwan to meet Her in person. When you met Her in person, you feel you are meeting a really wonderful person. She has a different kind of aura. Her existence felt so warmth yet so peaceful. You can feel that you are meeting with someone with so much wisdom and peace in Her.
I’m really felt honored to meet Her. 2014 seems to be a blessed year for me. So, what about yours? Which wonderful person have you met this year? Share with us so we can be inspired too 🙂
