On Sunday of September, the Class A gave the Teacher a special surprise in their class and wished the Teacher a Happy Teacher’s Day. It seemed that the Teacher was surprised!
The Teacher has guarded us for many years, what she gives us is not only a place to learn the Buddha Dharma; it is also like a safe haven and a lighthouse which shelters us from wind and rain and guides the direction for us when we feel helpless. And it is also a warm home where many family members are accompanied by one another at any time.
In this home of Dharma, the Teacher is our loving mother, she not only teaches us every month to make us know how to use the Dharma in our busy daily life to eliminate our many vexations, but also leads and instructs the operation of the Association. When the students encounter any “intractable diseases” and asked the Teacher, she guides us by “holding our hands” with patience, so that we can cultivate our minds through undergoing things. Even if the Teacher is busy with her work, she still teaches us around the clock. Many students who participated in the Association’s affairs say that the gains in doing the Association’s affairs are even more and more solid than those learned in the workplace, and then they found that when they bring what they have learned in the Association to the workplace, they can handle the difficult tasks with more ease!
As long as we or our family have problems which can’t be solved, our intuitive response is to ask the Teacher for help. Because the Teacher knows very much about the capabilities of each of us, she always can teach us with the way which suits us best and save us from plight. Many students also often feel that the Teacher seems to be able to sense when we are anxious or sad and then appear in time (by telephone or message). When we got the warm care of the Teacher, we were so moved.
We wished the Teacher good health, all the Teacher’s compassionate wishes come true, the career of benefiting the sentient beings goes smoothly and be complete, and more sentient beings who are in physical and mental sufferings can make good affinity with the Teacher and embark on the path of enlightenment making themselves free from sufferings.
(The following is only one excerpt of the students' blessings as representative)

Thank you very much for taking me, who was confused about the life and future like floating in a gravity-free space, back to the down-to-earth world, and enabling me gradually learn to understand myself who I had never dared to face.
Thank you for not only saving us but also teaching and loving us for these many years with your unconditional love, just like we met the first time.
I sincerely wish you a Happy Teacher's Day! All your compassionate wishes come true!
Your student, Wan-Ting
