Sheng Yen Education Foundation
Sheng Yen Education Foundation (herein referred to as “the Foundation”) was established on January 18, 2006 with the approval of the Taiwanese Ministry of Education. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the ideals of “uplifting the character of humanity and building a pure land on earth,” as advocated by Master Sheng Yen, by purifying people’s minds and society through education. Therefore, the Foundation is dedicated to the promotion and propagation of Master Sheng Yen’s thought and ideas. As the Master’s thought and ideas focused on the realization of building a pure land on earth, throughout his life, the Master endeavored to incorporate the Buddhadharma into the daily life of modern people, in hopes of uplifting their life andcharacterthrough the Buddhadharma. We hope that religious and academic circles, as well as those individuals who are interested and aspiring in this course, can all join in the efforts to explore, research, and implement this vision.
The Foundation’s mission is to promote the following work:
- The main task is to collect, compile, research, systemize, categorize, translate, edit and publish, produce, circulate, promote, disseminate, and give away Master Sheng Yen’s publications, audio and visual information, and other writings and items to relevant individuals and groups worldwide in the hope of universally uplifting the character of humanity and ubiquitously actualizing a pure land on Earth.
- In addition, the Foundation will subsidize and support the promotion of Buddhist education, academic Buddhist research and studies, publications of Buddhist writings that share the same thought and ideas as Master Sheng Yen, and any educational efforts or endeavors that aim at purifying human minds and society.
