Tzu Chi volunteers selflessly contribute through a mindset of gratitude, expressing their sincerest care and support to each and every individual in need.
The shared goal of Tzu Chi volunteers is to cultivate sincerity, integrity, faith, and honesty within while exercising kindness, compassion, joy, and selflessness to humanity through concrete actions. Transcending the bounds of race, nationality, language, and religion, they serve the world under the notion that “when others are hurting, we feel their pain; when others suffer, we feel their sorrow”. Not only do the volunteers endeavor to promote the universal value of “Great Love,” they also fully employ the humanitarian spirit of Chinese culture to its utmost.
Tzu Chi Foundation’s “Four Major Missions” consist of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanity. Adding the efforts in Bone Marrow Donation, Environmental Protection, Community Volunteerism, and International Relief, the undertakings are now collectively known as “Tzu Chi’s Eight Footprints”.
“There is great strength when everyone does good deeds. There is good fortune when everyone creates blessings.” ~ Dharma Master Cheng Yen
In 1991, founder of Taiwan-based Tzu Chi Foundation, Master Cheng Yen received The Magsaysay Community Leadership Award from the Philippine Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation. This is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Asia. Along with the award came a prize money of US $30,000 (worth approximately Php 825,000 then) which the Master distributed to two beneficiaries - the victims of the China flooding and of the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The award paved way to the exposure of the Master’s compassion to the Chinese community in the Philippines.

Only by first purifying and changing ourselves can we ever hope to purify and change others.
The world needs peace, society needs tranquility, and people need harmony.
Have faith in our selfless nature, and have faith that everyone has a loving heart.
When everyone has a pure heart, we can turn wasteland into Pure Land.
Spiritual insecurity is the source of unrest. Only when everyone is at peace can society be tranquil.
When discussing "benefit", one must discuss the benefit for the world. When discussing "love", one must discuss the love for all living beings.
Society's disorder originates from covetousness of the heart.
To purify people's hearts, one must first illuminate the light within oneself, then act as a lantern-bearer to light the way for others.
To purify people's hearts, one must give with a loving heart, guide with wisdom and accompany with patience.
Those who want to change others but not themselves create a spiritual imbalance.
If one takes care of one's own heart, society will be harmonious. If everyone's heart is at peace, the world will be blessed.
Repentance brings purification; great vows bring blessings.
A wholesome life begins with vegetarianism.
Use understanding to filter out disputes and gossip, and transform a muddy flow into a clear stream.
Abandon a worry and gain a sense of purify; abandon a belonging and gain a sense of ease.
Retain a pure heart without greed and we shall have peace and serenity.
Genuine selfless love can purify all.
When we make great vows and put them into action, we realize our true virtues.
Good relations with others come from giving selflessly and earning the fondness, trust, and admiration of others.
If one's heart is often filled with kindness and sincerity towards others, one will win the hearts of others.
To covet and take from others is to harm one's own character.
With deep humility and comes great character.
Morality is a duty and observing propriety is an obligation for a human being.
Compare one's material life with those less wealthy; elevate one's character, and the maturation of wisdom.
True wealth is measured in virtue; true character is measured in filial gratitude.
Uphold the spirit of sincerity, integrity, trustworthiness, and honesty.
The beauty of people lies in their virtue; it is displayed through their good deeds, good words and good heart.
Courteous people are liked by everyone; reasonable people are respected by everyone.
Good morals provide hope for humanity and are the foundation for happiness.
One must do good deeds with sincerity, deal with affairs with integrity, treat people with honesty and stay trustworthy at all times.
One can be materially poor, but one must not be poor in determination and spirit.
There is great wealth as one lives a simple life. There is great willpower
Propriety is revealed with every action and every movement.
