GREAT KINDNESS AND COMPASSION
by Taixu (1889 - 1947)
English translation: You Zai

With great loving-kindness,
one shall give comfort and happiness to all,
With great compassion,
one should liberate all from life’s suffering;
To liberate human beings,
one should liberate those from all nations and all walks of life.
To liberate the world,
one should benefit all sentient beings.

LEARNING AND APPLICATION

English Translation: Linda Tsui

The value of learning lies in knowing what is important,
not in hoarding excessive knowledge;
The value of application lies in appropriateness,
not in stubborn stiff implementation.

── from Taixu Dashi Quanshu (The Complete Works of Master Taixu)
