“I vow to establish educational institutions because as a child, I did not have the privilege of receiving any formal education. Only education can improve and transform one’s character for a better future. Hence, I founded the Nan Tien Institute. May my donation of 100 scholarships and my One-Stroke Calligraphy strengthen the foundation and sustainable development of this institute.”
In June 2017, the Hsing Yun Education Foundation was established by the Fo Guang Shan Nan Tien Temple to support Buddhist culture, education, arts and academic development leading to the enhancement of morality and wisdom in multicultural Australia.
