About the Author
Venerable Master Hsing Yun was born in Jiangsu Province, China in 1927. He has studied at various renowned Buddhist institutions such as Qixia Vinaya College and Jiaoshan Buddhist College. Soon after his arrival in Taiwan in 1949, he became the chief editor of Human Life, a Buddhist magazine. In 1952, his efforts in establishing Buddhist Chanting Groups strengthened the foundation for his subsequent endeavors in the promotion of the Dharma. The Master founded Fo Guang Shan Monastery in 1967, with the primary goal of promoting Humanistic Buddhism through Buddhist education, culture, charity, and propogation of the Dharma. Since then, over two hundred branch temples have been established in major cities around the world. He has also set up art galleries, libraries, publishing houses, bookstores, mobile clinics Buddhist colleges and universities including University of the West, Fo Guang University, Nan Hua University, Nan Tien Institute and Guang Ming College. In 1977, the Fo Guang Tripitika Editorial Board was formed to compile the Fo Guang Buddhist Canon and the Fo Guang Dictionary of Buddhism. Many other works in Buddhism have also been published. Master Hsing Yun has dedicated his life to propogating Humanistic Buddhism. As a global citizen, he continues to foster joy and harmony, oneness and coexistence, respect and tolerance, and equality and peace throughout the world. When he founded the Buddha's Light International Association in 1991 and was elected president of its world headquarters, he was closer to realizing the ideal of having "the Buddha's light shining throughout the three thousand realms, and the Dharma water flowing across the five continents."
