This book is written by Chinese American author Yu-ing Ching through interviews with Master Cheng Yen, the master’s monastic disciples and her foster mother, as well as Tzu Chi’s staff, volunteers, and aid recipients. The author engages readers with her thoughtful and intricate writing style, enabling the latter to gain an understanding of Master Cheng Yen’s life from childhood to young adulthood, how the sudden passing of her father became an important turning point in her life, and her eventual decision to pursue a monastic life. With her unshakable faith and determination, the Master never wavered in the face of adversity and difficulty. Extending her love for her family to the world, she made a vow to bring relief and aid to the poor and suffering, and to nourish their minds with compassion and wisdom.


The book offers some insight into how a great religious leader and philanthropist who is revered by millions worldwide actively works to accomplish her noble mission of “helping the poor and educating the rich.” At the beginning of each chapter and within sections of each chapter, readers will find inspiring quotes from Master Cheng Yen. These timeless words of wisdom not only serve as food for thought, but also offer invaluable guidance.
