Enlighten the value of life

Why do people live in the world?
60 years ago, an undergraduate once mailed this question to Einstein. The great physicist wrote bake to say, the true meaning of life is to meet others’ needs and live in harmony with them as far as possible. On this issue, the achievement of enlightened ancient Greeks and Oriental philosophers is far greater than our university now.
You should be how to spend your life? This problem requires a lot of thinking and self education consciously. ChuShan Institute is a Chinese traditional culture society, which can enlighten the value of life and help you to understand why and how to implement this.
The Institute preaches the classics of Oriental philosophers, leads us to live as the ancient way and communicate with the temple Chan master to gain wisdom. Everyone here lives in harmony and has gotten the heart pure, kindness and profound.
In my learning career here, I have read many classics of ancient China, such as Classic of triple-words, Hundreds of family names, Verse of one thousand words, Rules for Confucius students, etc. We also commemorate the folk festivals, cook Chinese foods. During these activities, we experience the sages’ true thought, get the temperament of them, our mood turn into gentle, amiable and joyful, our heart and appearance also become tall and handsome.
Every person studying in ChuShan Institute will get the enlightenment of life by the ancient saint. So, I think study here is very worth well.

How can this program be improved?

This place let me miss my family. I love it.

In ChuShan, I can know of the Modern China and the Ancient China. I love this Private House-Class of Chinese Traditional Culture.
On 1st October, we celebrated the birthday of Confucius and we learned the Classic Confucian teachings. It let me feel that I have become a smarter person. Meanwhile we tasted the delicious Chinese tea. I felt the peace of my mind. At last, We took the teamwork to prepare dinner and enjoyed it, like a family.
