Biography
Venerable Master Cheng Yen was born in a small town called Chingshui in Central Taiwan in 1937. When she was twenty-three years old, she left home to become a Buddhist nun. The Master has always led a simple and virtuous life. In her frugality, she made candles and bean powder to maintain a living. In 1966, she established the Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation, and for more than forty years this organization has concentrated its activities in the major missions of charity, medicine, education, culture, environmental protection, community volunteers, international relief and bone marrow donation. In 1991, the Master received the Philippine Magsaysay Award, the “Asian Nobel Prize.” Living a simple life with only the basic necessities, the Master has actively pursued her work of helping the poor and educating the rich.
