Construct a Harmonious World with “Fasting for Charity & Good Deed Every Day” and “Mutual Love among All Citizens”
Since the devil cloud of 911 rose above Manhattan, this blue planet has been cloaked in a shroud of ruthless and cruel haze, and Blood and flames have begun to pervade our green homeland. Ever since, violent events have occurred frequently in many parts of the earth, clouds of smoke floating everywhere. An average of 5 violent terrorist events targeted at civilians have happened every day, and 2,000 every year. People cannot help shivering at those violent and bloody events.
Thereafter, countless happy families have been destroyed in shattering explosions, innumerable peaceful ethnic groups have begun to hate each other because of the bloody massacres, many countries have suffered turbulent social situations and depressive economies in the haze of terrorist attacks, and a great many regions have undergone fleeing refugees and sparse population in continuous violent conflicts.
Chinese civilians seemed to take “terrorist events” as exclusive news in foreign countries. But recently, increasing terrorist events have suddenly broken into the social lives of ordinary Chinese people. This ancient nation, which takes “harmony” as a priority, finally suffered brutality and terror in the events of “Kunming Railway Station”, “Guangzhou Railway Station”, “Urumqi Street Corner” and “McDonald in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province”. It is even more pathetic that the individual security and interpersonal credit of the civilian are deteriorating gradually and group moral consciousness and social responsibility awareness are disappearing rapidly with the spread of waves of the sense of terrorist presence.
We cannot help asking, “Is it an inevitable ending of the history of human civilization? Is it the cost human beings must pay for scientific and technological progress, cultural prosperity, material abundance, common resources, political diversification, and freedom of belief?”
No! The answer is no! Any organizations using the excuse of ethnicity, culture, belief, politics, economy and territory as reasons for terrorism are the public enemies of human civilization! When terrorism intrudes and takes over the innate compassion, uprightness and bravery of human beings; when we indulge our biological instincts of “seeking benefits and avoiding disadvantages” in enslaving our conscience and duties; when benevolence and sincerity become wildest dreams; when contempt and arrogance towards social contracts from groups become commonplace, please do not ask --- for whom the bell tolls! It is up to all of us to make the correct choice!
We, human beings, have a common nature and purpose. Why can not we be bathed in sunlight and rain and enjoy a peaceful and serene sky together?
A Zenist as I am, confronted with various disharmonies in human society, I launched a global initiative for “Fasting for Charity and Good Deed Every Day” on February 11th, 2011, proposing to achieve self-redemption of mankind through fasting and doing good so as to abolish human and natural catastrophes. Since then, both domestic and overseas, understanding people spontaneously have formed millions of “F & D” groups one after another, and thousands of virtuous people have joined in the practice and dissemination of the “F & D”, constantly pouring kindness and love into society.
Through fasting, numerous people have achieved healthy lifestyles and healthy bodies, reducing resource consumption and conflicts caused by it; through charity, people have built social ethics and feelings of universal compassion and equality in their inner hearts; and the good causes of mutual aid and love have been implanted in their lives. In the three years since the start of fasting for charity, the seeds of good have taken roots, sprouted, bloomed and born fruits.
Based on promoting “F & D”, on March 10th, 2013, I sent out a call of “Mutual Love among All Citizens” campaign, i.e. “finding mutual aid, mutual love, mutual trust, self-respect, self-dignity, and self-improvement among people”. I hope this campaign can push human beings to try their best to carry forward “Equality” and “Caritas/Universal love” to every corner of the world and to remedy social deficiency and perversity through common devotion, making the future society and groups return to normal ethical and juridical orders. I would like every interested fellow to participate, to make everyone in society perfect their personalities and regularize behavior, and to construct together a society and ecological environment in which our offspring can live and develop.
In these times of frequent terrorist events, I send out the initiative of “Fasting for Charity, Good Deed Every Day” and “Mutual Love among All Citizens” to all citizens in the world, appealing to all citizens to achieve self-redemption, egoism and altruism! Let us create a harmonious social atmosphere together through everyone’s unremitting efforts, let us reconstruct a glorious human homeland our ancient oracles predicted for us!
A rough road will become easier to go once you step on it; a tough task will become easier to achieve once you begin to do it. As long as you step forward, the day of a harmonious world will come true!

The launch of Hua Zang website dovetails with the trend of current society,
and presents the real Hua Zang, which shows the heavens’ intent to relieve all sentient beings

It is a convenient Dharma-Gate that Buddha opens to all, and provides a place for Buddhist
practicers to attain enlightenment.
Hua Zang Center upholds the spirit of Hua Zang Lineage with the commitment to the prosperity of the Chinese nation and the world peace. It infuses a pure flux into the defiled world, sets up moral examples, and corrects practicers' errors to free them from impediments, thus to open a spectacular door of attaining enlightenment.
Wish all Hua Zang practicers treasure, cherish and guard Hua Zang Dharma, reverently entrust yourselves to the true practice and realization of Hua Zang Dharma, also practice the Six Paramita extensively to accomplish perfect wisdom. Wish all the fellow practicers and virtuous people from the ten-directions of space, take this precious opportunity, to initiate good wills to create good karma and benefit all sentient beings, to understand, cultivate and uphold the Hua Zang Dharma together.
