Spreading the Dharma
Venerable Master Hsing Yun proclaims, "In order to accomplish the common goal of attaining the path of enlightenment together, we, as devout members of BLIA, shall diligently propagate the Dharma to benefit others. Only through the complete understanding of Buddhism and its values will the awareness of human suffering be realized. Eventually, society will experience the blessedness of true cultivation. Only through the virtues of compassion and wisdom, and the willingness to help others will the multitude and ourselves be blessed with ultimate happiness."
