About Welfare 有关慈善组

一个人最大的快乐不只在于自己取得成就,还要能帮助别人离苦得乐.当别人处于痛苦的深渊时,您的帮助有如一盏灯,把明灯带进他的生命里,引导他走出黑暗:这是慈善的功能!

 学佛的人,必须有向善向光明的意愿,时时刻刻修学佛菩萨”无缘大慈,同体大悲”的精神,秉承修行即是慈善,慈善就是修行的观念,投入慈善事业,参与利生工作,借此显示学佛生活的价值.

 佛教慈善应该是社会慈善的净化与提升;它必须是自愿奉献的,把行善当做是修行的内容而不为名为利,善于分配时间随分随力从事慈善工作,参加慈善活动能无怨无悔.

 本会慈善助理委员会因此成立,它由四大组组合,有五位助理委员,而由一位管委督导,今简介如下:

 (一)社会福利组

(二)辅导组

(三)宗教服务组

(四)行政与资讯

慈善即是修行的表现,这是非常有意义的工作,在这个相互依存的世间,有很多不幸与需要照顾的人,因此本助理委员会希望您加入义工行列,献出您的爱心,给人间带来温暖.

One’s greatest joy is derived not only from one’s achievement, but also from the ability to bring happiness to others and to alleviate others’ sufferings. When one is experiencing a hard time, a helping hand is like a lamp which lights up one’s life and guides one away from darkness. Welfare Sub-Committee serves to fulfil this role.

A Buddhist practitioner should possess the aspiration to do good and progress towards a promising future. We should gradually cultivate the non-discriminating and compassionate spirit of Bodhisattvas, thus exemplifying the concept that charity and cultivation are actually two sides of the same coin! Hence, one should participate actively in activities that will benefit others, and thereby demonstrate the value of Buddhist practice.

Buddhist welfare should rise above social welfare in spirit; it should be voluntary and seen as part of Buddhist practice, instead of a way to achieve fame or selfish gains. One who participates in Buddhist welfare activities should know how to manage his time well and offer his services according to his financial and time constraints without any complaints or regrets.

Headed by a committee member and assisted by five sub-committee members, the Welfare Sub-Committee is in charge of the following four divisions :

  1. Social Welfare Group
  2. Counselling Group
  3. Religious Service Group
  4. Administration and Information Group

Charity is the outward expression of one’s cultivation. This is an extremely meaningful job! In this interdependent society where many unfortunate people need our help, the Welfare Sub-Committee hopes that you can be a volunteer who brings warmth and love to the society!
