Morning Volunteer Assembly



Every morning at 7 AM, Dharma Master Cheng Yen hosts the Morning Volunteer Assembly in the Jing Si Abode, located in the rural outskirts of Hualien, Taiwan. With the help of modern satellite and internet technology, staff and volunteers in more than 50 countries serving in all the different missions of Tzu Chi can attend this assembly live. Master often says that she is deeply grateful to have all the volunteers working together with the same vision and all she can give them in return is Dharma.

In this daily video conference, Master reviews the latest world and Tzu Chi news and offers her insight into the underlying universal principles at play as evidenced by these events. She also wants to help the audience see clearly how Buddhism is helping our world by bringing back the pure love in people's hearts.

Her words of wisdom and deep compassion for all living beings inspire the audience to stay committed to their path of cultivation as well as make practical and real contributions to the world. Many staff and volunteers attend this daily assembly faithfully because it is where they find their life wisdom for daily living.
