The Illustrated Jing Si Aphorisms

The Buddha says:

Health is the greatest blessing,

contentment is the greatest good fortune,

trust is the greatest relationship,

and nirvana is the greatest joy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ordinary people seek material fortune, while saints pursue the truth.

Money does not necessarily bring happiness. The greatest peace of mind comes with a clear conscience. Giving, helping others, and saving lives bring the most happiness!

 

A couple just got married at the Jing Si Abode.

Master Cheng Yen said, “The wedding ceremony is not the most important thing. The most important thing is that from today on, both the bride and groom have an additional pair of parents, and the parents on both sides have an additional son or daughter. Man and wife are “two birds in the same tree.” Since you have the deep karma to get married, from now on you should cherish this meaningful relationship. With one mind and one will, you should build a bodhisattva family together.
