The Philosophy of Being Second comprises inspiring snippets of first person narratives written by Master Hsing Yun,a Chinese Buddhist master, with over 60 years of practice. The world that appears in his mind is perpetually filled with brilliance and perfection. He is content to be "the second", being guided by those above while guiding those below. He believes that to succeed one needs to start as the "number two". Rather than insisting upon being in the spotlight, one should work according to circumstances.He who devotes himself to helping others succeed, even while working hard to actualize himself, truly becomes his own master.

Many people have asked me, "What has empowered you to overcome all adversities without resignation?" I attribute this to my sensibility. Because I am easily moved by a person or an event, the world that appears in my mind is perpetually filled with brilliance and perfection. It gives me tremendous encouragement to move forward.
