How Far Can a Penny a Day Take Us?

Transient though life may be, one’s contributions will live on; as love knows no boundaries, its spirit will always remain. (Jing Si Aphorisms by Shih Cheng Yen).

During the Chinese New Year, I traveled to Taiwan. As part of my sightseeing tour, I visited the Pu Ming Temple in Hualien County that Master Cheng Yen, a Buddhist nun, helped grow, imrpove and advance. The temple was located on acres and acres of land where the volunteers both room and board, but also where they grow their own food. During this New Year, they fed up to 3,500 visitors — the indigent and those with no family to take them in during the holiday. This is a far cry from the early days in the mid-1960s when Master Cheng Yen started her journey in Hualien.
