Jing Si Aphorisms

E-mail Print PDF
Timeless and easily comprehensible, Jing Si Aphorisms serve as a food for thought and spiritual nourishment for people as they are faced with the daily challenges of busy, modern day life.

In May 2012, an earthquake struck northern Italy, damaging many buildings. Many people were left homeless and had to take shelter in tents. Tzu Chi volunteers in Europe mobilized and travelled to Italy several times to provide relief and aid to those affected by the quake. This thus leads to the making of an introductory pamphlet on Tzu Chi in Italian and the publication of “Jing Si Aphorisms” in Italian for the first time, along with English, French and German. 

The book contains the four languages, and with Chinese verses included in the Appendix. The contained 125 aphorisms are selected from “Jing Si Aphorisms One” and “Jing Si Aphorisms Two”.

" Material objects were meant to be tools for us to use. Yet, lacking wisdom, we are perpetually discontent, and we thus become enslaved by material objects. "
