Liew Kim Shin, 53, has bravely taken the opportunity to be a sign language performer for the Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance sutra adaptation performance. To him, the chance to learn the Dharma is very rare and precious. As he understood more about karma through the songs, he slowly allayed his worries, repented for his past and rewrote his present life’s script.

Four sutra adaptation performances of Dharma as Water will be held on July 4 and 5, 2015 at Bukit Jalil Stadium. The costs for the performances are estimated to be high, hence Tzu Chi KL & Selangor Entrepreneurs initiated a fundraising programme, appealing for sponsorship through purchase of lotus lightings.

On October 22, 2014, Deepavali, about 2,600 Tzu Chi volunteers from Central and Southern Malaysia attended a three-session large-scale sutra study on “Dharma as Water” at the KL Tzu-Chi Jing Si Hall. Guided by volunteers-in-charge, the attendees learnt the verses in the sutra, followed by their sign language interpretations, in preparation for the grand sutra adaptation performance next year.

Next year, Tzu Chi volunteers from Central and Southern Malaysia will be presenting the Master with a gift. In an effort to promote the Dharma and purify the mind, volunteers have been aggressively inviting the public to partake in the sign language interpretation of the “Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance” Sutra. Through fellowships and group cultivation, everyone has been led into the Dharma and experienced the joy of Dharma.
