The best family event for Memorial Day long weekend - English subtitled animation film. 介紹 5/29 長周末的最佳家庭活動.
[The movie] broke the record in Taiwan with more than NT$30 million ticket sales......
What kind of motivation and inspiration that made Master Jian-Zhen devote eleven years to sailing to Japan in order to teach the vinaya? With five failing attempts, Master Jian-Zhen finally arrived at Japan at his six trip. Even when losing his eyesight, he still held on his aspiration.
He opened a new chapter of culture exchange between China and Japan. Not only that Master Jian-Zhen laid the foundation for the vinaya sect of Buddhism, the Toshodai Temple he built also became an architecture treasure. And he was honored as the “Father of Japanese Medicine” for his contribution to Japanese medicine.

When & Where
Tzu Chi Foundation
Tzu Chi Foundation was established in 1966 by Venerable Dharma Master Cheng Yen, who was named by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in year 2011. The magazine paid particular attention to Tzu Chi's work in Japan after it was struck by the devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 11. While many organizations were still deciding on how to help, the volunteers of Tzu Chi already went to the front line of the affected areas to distribute relief goods and comfort those who had lost their homes and their loved ones.
