Venerable Master Hsing Yun has been a Buddhist monk for over sixty years and has spent his life as a monastic working to promote Humanistic Buddhism.

He is the author of many works including Being Good and Chan Heart, Chan Art.
Introduction
In Buddhism, when a young man enters the monastic order as a novice monk he is called a qinxi. Qin means "diligence," and indicates that he will diligently cultivate the "threefold training" of morality, meditative concentration, and wisdom. Xi means "quiet," which indicates his goal to quiet his afflictions by eliminating greed, anger, and delusion: These afflictions are life's greatest enemies, and the threefold training is the method by which we can eliminate these afflictions.
However, the threefold training does not belong only to monastics, but to all Buddhists everywhere. All great sages and bodhisattvas have undergone the threefold training, and it is a teaching that is shared by Mahayana, Vajrayana, and Theravada Buddhism alike.
The Buddhist scriptures themselves share a common structure with the threefold training. The Tripitaka, the core of the Buddhist canon, is divided into three divisions: sutra, vinaya, and abhidharma. The sutra
