This book is not only about the life story of Venerable Master Hsing Yun, founder of the Fo Guang Shan International Buddhist Order and the Buddha's Light International Association, but also the trials and tribulations that the Master had endured in bringing us a religion, which can be an essential part of our daily lives. This is a journalistic coverage of how Master Hsing Yun passed on the light of "Humanistic Buddhism" that he had received from his master in Mainland China to Taiwan and now to every corner of this world. Anyone who wants to know more about this charismatic Buddhist leader or his inspiring teachings should not miss this book.

About the Author:

Master Hsing Yun was born in Chiangsu Province, China in 1927 and entered a monastery near Nanjing at age twelve. He was fully ordained in 1941 and is the 48th patriarch of the Lin-chi (Rinzai) Ch'an school. In 1949, he went to Taiwan and subsequently founded the Fo Guang Shan International Buddhist Order. He later also founded the Buddha's Light International Association which currently holds more than 120 chapters and over one million members worlwide. Master Hsing Yun has devoted the last half century to transform this world into a pureland through the practice of Humanistic Buddhism. A prolific writer, the master's works are bestsellers in Taiwan. He is also the author of publications such as Being Good; Only a Great Rain; Humble Table, Wise Fare; Cloud and Water; and Lotus in the Stream.

Fu Chi-ying, a former reporter with the Commonwealth Publishing Company in Taiwan, was personally handpicked by Master Hsing Yun to pen the original text in Chinese.

Amy Lui-Ma is the English translator of this biography.

Review:

No future histories of Chinese Buddhism will be complete without reference to the influences of this leader. --Professor Lewis R. Lancaster, University of California, Berkeley
