A BRIEF REFLECTION ON THE TSUNAMI DISASTER
Buddhism teaches us to accept what happens without resentment or blame; instead, think of what we can do. Grand Master Wei CHueh has directed Chung Tai Chan Monastery and our 80-plus Zen centers in Asia and the U.S. to raise money for the tsunami disaster. To this date, we have donated nearly US$100,000 to Thailand, Sri Lanka, and other areas. But, besides working to alleviate the immediate suffering, let us also work from the cause to prevent future suffering.
First, by education: teach our youth the interdependence of all life and even as children, they can care and contribute. For example, they can save up their allowance and snack money for a month and make a donation. What they learn through this effort will be of much greater value than the money itself.
Second, Buddha teaches that greed, anger, and ignorance, which we all possess, are the ultimate causes of bad karma and human suffering. So we should, and will, continue to teach through Buddhist principles and meditation how to be calm, content, tolerant, and understanding. This is the ultimate relief effort--to prevent disasters. Let us focus on the outpouring of kindness that has occurred and keep up our hope for humanity!
