I am honored to be the recipient of the Centre of Buddhist Studies Postgraduate Scholarship 2021-22. Thanks to your generous support of my further academic and spiritual practices in Buddhism.
I am the first in my family to attend university. I was born in a grass-roots village family in Tung Chung financially supported by CSSA. My parents divorced when I was 10 and our relationship was complicated. At the age of 17, one of my compositions was awarded so that I had a chance to join a ‘Life Education Camp’ in Taiwan, which my first time to have a deeper insight into life: being born, getting old, getting sick, and death. At that time, I determinedly decide to be a life worker. From my deep heart, I want to help people to find the meaning of life. After that, with the help of a district councilor and social worker, I left my parents and lived in University Hall during my whole study period with a full grant loan.
After graduation, I became a college teacher and continued my master’s study at CUHK. I was stressed with the curriculum and administration work in school, so I turned around to Waldorf Education. I went back to the music teaching job starting since 18. I have started to find what is the meaning of life and what is sustainable true happiness. Apart from Confucianism and Daoism learned in B.A, PGDE, and M.A in Chinese, I have started spiritual practice from 2018 in practicing Vipassana Meditation, Mindfulness training in Plum Village, Yoga, Waldorf, Montessori, Tea Art, ‘A Course in Miracles’, Hypnotherapy, Tuning Fork Therapy, Singing Bowl Therapy, and Buddhist Study in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Bahamas. Moreover, I founded ‘ The Peace One H.K’ in 2019 and ‘ Guzhengguqin.com’ in 2017 to offer music and life education, and also emotion therapy to clients. We have gained some press interviews and music awards. The relationship between me and my mother and father is totally changed from suffering to love and care. I feel released and thankful. After fighting and searching for the meaning of life through different tools, finally, I found the Buddhist Study with Counselling is the ultimate answer and is the path that I would like to devote, to help myself and all the people from the world.
I am wholeheartedly grateful to have a full grant loan to reach the University Level of Study and Exchanges in university life, which enhances my spiritual enlightenment and knowledge to serve human beings in the world. I am truly grateful for the scholarship support to take the Master of Buddhist Counselling at Hong Kong University. I would like to equip my Buddhist Study and the skill of counseling, and the philosophy of the meaning of life, in order to offer maturer service to human beings in Hong Kong and the world. This scholarship allows me to focus on my studies and additional educational opportunities and with great encouragement to my work. I promise to devote my life to serve. Thank you for your support.
Q：Is equanimity contrast to happiness? A：No. We can enjoy life, but life have hardship, by practicing vipassana helps us change the pattern of mind to have more peaceful life.
Q：I can’t concentrate to follow teacher’s construction, I don’t like myself. What should I do ? A: Anger will bring more anger, no need to be angry. It is normal to be in-concentrated, mind is keep flying away. Gently accept it and comeback the breathing and start again.
