Academic Discourse


After 40 years of hard work, the founder of Tzu Chi Foundation, Master Cheng Yen officially announced in 2006, the establishment of the "Tzu Chi Dharma Path", where the teaching is based on the Sutra of Infinite Meanings. The Master once said, “We belong to the Tzu Chi School of Buddhism. Tzu Chi volunteers should cultivate through their interaction with people to cultivate the innumerable dharma ways (cultivation methods).”

Since 2010, the Tzu Chi Foundation has held forums every two or three years as a way to introduce the philosophy and humanistic culture of Tzu Chi to the global academic institutions and religious institutions. Different topics were discussed during the academic conference and scholars from Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Britain, the United States and other countries were invited to the conference.
