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.

To elevate one's character, one needs to embrace everyone and rejoice in their achievements and admirable qualities.
Strive not to compete with others but to strengthen our resolve.
We need to be firm in our moral ideals and empower them with courage and persistence.
To elevate one's character, one does not need power but rather loving care.
One becomes virtuous as one learns from giving.
Composure is the ability to avoid becoming angry at the insults of others or smug from praise.
One must first engage in self-scrutiny to earn the trust of others.
With determination, one will move forward. Without determination, one will fall back.
Ideals should be far-reaching; actions should be practical.
Character building starts with trustworthiness.
What is manifest on the outside can reveal one's inner character.
No matter how knowledgeable a person is, the most important things are to remember one's roots and look after one's character.
We only have room for gratitude in our heart, not grievances.
To be happy, first make others happy; to be successful, first help others become successful.
Determination and great vows are the forces which create happiness in life.
Conquering ignorance is superior to conquering a hundred peaks.
Realize and apply the Buddha's teachings in our daily life, for it is through interacting with the world that we cultivate ourselves spiritually.
The first step towards enlightenment begins with the first vow we take to help all living beings.
The act of repentance is tantamount to the purification of the heart, like a clear stream flowing over the heart cleansing away its defilements.
Always observe propriety at heart and evil shall find no breeding ground within one's Buddha nature.
Only by opening one's heart can on give with great compassion and gain true wisdom and virtue.
Realize the Buddha's teaching through daily life experience. Realize worldly Dharma through human interactions.
To be a real life Bodhisattva, one must first undergo spiritual self-cultivation.
The Buddha's teachings are not only to be studied but realized through actual practice and compassionate acts of giving.
Loving others and loving oneself is to have a Buddha heart or a Bodhisattva heart.
Ordinary people are governed by their karma, while the enlightened ones dictate their own life.
Instead of asking for blessing from Bodhisattva, we should search within our own heart.
Be grateful and compassionate at all times. Enlightened compassion is selfless love.
Live with Buddha in one's heart, Dharma in one's action, Zen in one's Dharma.
Great love manifest itself through practicing great compassion; wisdom manifest itself through transcending worries.
Kindness and compassion bear neither regret nor complaint; joy and equanimity are free of want and worry.
Gratitude is wisdom; giving is compassion.
Vegetarianism cultivates perseverance, compassion and wisdom.
