“Be Grateful always for everything and everyone at every moment”
Jing-Si Aphorism by Master Cheng Yen
My family and I always grateful on what we have and we want to relieve others from suffering and bring happiness to others whenever we can.
During the 1st day of Chinese New Year, we went to old folks home to offer breakfast to elderly people. We hope we can bring a moment of happiness and joy to them in this auspicious day.
My gratitude to a group of friends who gave donation generously to buy groceries items to the old folk home.
The most touching effort was from my mother, she made steamed pumpkin bun for the elderly person.
My mom spent more than 4 hours to make the steamed pumpkin bun. Her only wish was to bring a slight happiness to serve breakfast to elderly people during the 1st day of CNY.
She can steam only 15 bun at one time. She took 5 times to make 75 buns. Amazing effort!
Yellowish bun, it’s similar to shinning blessing light from Buddha. May all beings be Well and Happy!
A basket of steamed pumpkin bun full of love, sharing spirit of happiness and joy.
Besides breakfast, we also gave Ang Pau, Wish them happy, Fortunate cookies and chocolate to cheer their life and make them smile…
Share your great love with others whenever you can. Don’t wait and Don’t give any excuses. It was great to see smiling faces from others and it was so blessed to give rather than receive.
“I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease.
It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.”
