This is the time of the year for all Tzu Chi volunteers to free themselves from their busy schedules and return to their spiritual home for a retreat and revitalize themselves through the training. The theme this year was, “Passing on the Jing Si Dharma Lineage for everyone to nurture their wisdom-life with a pure heart, and flourishing the Tzu Chi path for everyone to strengthen the spirit of working in unity and harmony with mutual love and concerted effort”.

The gist of Jing Si Dharma Lineage lies in diligence. While carrying out missions amongst the people, one cultivates inner calmness; and while helping others, one purifies one’s mind. Tzu Chi path on the other hand, advocates the practice of the Six Paramitas while serving humanity. Through these, one learns to count one’s blessings and guide others towards the right path.
