The Buddha attained enlightenment around 2,500 years ago, then taught, revealing universal truths about existence and offering guidance on how we can all awaken our Buddha Nature and achieve liberation from the inherent suffering in life. Venerable Master Cheng Yen continues this noble path of teaching the Buddha Dharma, skillfully revealing how this ancient wisdom is as relevant today, as ever.
The Buddha taught that on the path towards enlightenment, we must develop both wisdom and compassion. Dharma Master Cheng Yen’s teachings can help us understand and develop these qualities.
