Tzu Chi volunteers selflessly contribute through a mindset of gratitude, expressing their sincerest care and support to each and every individual in need.
The shared goal of Tzu Chi volunteers is to cultivate sincerity, integrity, faith, and honesty within while exercising kindness, compassion, joy, and selflessness to humanity through concrete actions. Transcending the bounds of race, nationality, language, and religion, they serve the world under the notion that “when others are hurting, we feel their pain; when others suffer, we feel their sorrow”. Not only do the volunteers endeavor to promote the universal value of “Great Love,” they also fully employ the humanitarian spirit of Chinese culture to its utmost.
Tzu Chi Foundation’s “Four Major Missions” consist of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanity. Adding the efforts in Bone Marrow Donation, Environmental Protection, Community Volunteerism, and International Relief, the undertakings are now collectively known as “Tzu Chi’s Eight Footprints”.
“There is great strength when everyone does good deeds. There is good fortune when everyone creates blessings.” ~ Dharma Master Cheng Yen
In 1991, founder of Taiwan-based Tzu Chi Foundation, Master Cheng Yen received The Magsaysay Community Leadership Award from the Philippine Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation. This is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Asia. Along with the award came a prize money of US $30,000 (worth approximately Php 825,000 then) which the Master distributed to two beneficiaries - the victims of the China flooding and of the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The award paved way to the exposure of the Master’s compassion to the Chinese community in the Philippines.

If we mindful, the truth is near us; otherwise, the truth is distant.
Optimism and pessimism are on. By changing our thoughts, we can turn pessimism to optimism.
Do not let the environment influence our mind. We need to improve the environment with diligence and perseverance.
Rather than searching for a path, search within own mind; instead of asking for directions, ask our heart.
Only by being mindful can we realize our true nature.
The body can tire but the spirit must not tire, for the spirit is the fountain of wisdom.
Physical illness is not frightening; what is frightening is illness of the mind. Lacking material goods is not devastating; what is devastating is poverty of the spirit.
It is better to have a big heart than a big house.
Natural disasters are caused by human wrongdoings that originated from the human mind.

Happiness and optimism are excellent vaccines against spiritual viruses.
Simplicity in living is a blessing; simplicity in thinking is bliss.
The three prerequisites of good spiritual health are; optimism, understanding, and love.
Think not about things one cannot do; worry not about things beyond one's reach.

We need to cherish current circumstances and be at ease with their passing to avoid disturbing our mind with worries.
To prevent spiritual calamities, one needs to learn how to nurture a resilient and healthy spirit.

A regretful heart is laden with worries; a willing heart gives with joy.
Clear away the haze covering the mind to reveal one's beautiful nature.
Do not reject or resent those who do not have a good affinity with us. Do not be overly attached to those who have good affinity with us.
When one's mind is free of attachment, one will feel a great sense of harmony.
The best way to live a long life is to uphold the right views and avoid covetous thoughts.
So-called "hard times" do not refer to the length of time that passes, rather that time passes slowly because the heart is saddled with burdens.
The hearts desires are the causes of life's greatest miseries.
A broad and open heart is a heart of kindness; simple and pure mind is a mind of beauty.
Spiritual disabilities are devastating, while physical disabilities are not.
The way to keep our mind unpolluted is to let bygones be bygones.
With a tranquil and peaceful heart, the road is smooth. With a broad and open heart, the road is wide.
Be a spiritual farmer who cultivates fields of blessings for oneself and others.
A strong mind can carry our missions without fear of external pressure.
So long as one is optimistic and determined, no challenges are too hard to bear.
We can choose to bear grudges or forgive. With a change of thought, we can tolerate everything.
Self-reflection reveals the most alluring sceneries of our mind
