Master of Love and Mercy: Cheng Yen[edit]

Blue Dolphin Publishing, 1995, by Yu-ing Ching, ISBN 0-931892-27-9

  • Love and Mercy transcernds races, nationalities and geographical distance. (p. vi)
  • All lives deserve to be respected, and all beings need to be loved. It ought to be easy for us to feel the pain experienced by the bodies other than our own and grant happiness to those who are but strangers. (p. 3)
  • We are all human beings, the best of us a saint, but never a god. We can follow a saint's conduct and imitate his behavior, but it is unnecessary to worship him. (p. 7)
  • Life is a journey; we board an express train at birth and head for the unavoidable destination of death. The scenery drifts by, and the only meaningful thing we can do is to be good and kind to our fellow passengers. (p. 13)
  • A happy person creates a happy home, and from that is able to contribute to his country and finally the world. (p. 18)
  • To study Buddhism under me is to adopt a new way of life. (p. 20)
