Find Your Inner Power

When you come to the Buddha Museum, someone will always warm up to you with "Jixiang", which means "Auspicious Greetings".

Why do they look so happy? What are the benefits to volunteering? These questions are on the minds of many.

The answer to this question lies in walking the talk.

Venerable Master Hsing Yun says, ""Given its common sense of purpose, many people are willing to generate the aspiration to commit their physical and mental effort, so long as what they do benefits the needs of the whole. Many private enterprises cannot achieve such a feat.""

Apart from interacting with visitors from all over the world, volunteers also get to develop new interests through various forms of services and activities."

As I prepare for visitors’ entry into the majestic Buddha site and guide them on their way to the Big Buddha,

I carry out my duties with the spirit of Three Goodness and Four Givings, and I keep in mind the Four Means of Embracing and the Six Paramitas.

By doing so, I am precisely propagating Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s concept of Humanistic Buddhism.

-- Sophie Wu
Being a volunteer here, has brought me so much, in new-found friendships, understanding Humanistic Buddhism,

and delving in those incredible exhibitions. I feel so fortunate to have been given an opportunity to be part of all these.

-- John van Gogh
