On the afternoon of February 16th, 2019, the beginning of spring of a new year, the founder of the Association, thank Teacher Susan Duan for enabling us to have the Dharma learning and Sutra chanting as the auspicious origin in the beginning of the new year. Even if the schedule would be tight, and the Teacher would be very tired, she was still compassionate and willing to lead our study and the Dharma Assembly at the Beginning of Spring on the same day.

The Association of Pure Buddhist(APB) held the Dharma Assembly of the Zhongyuan Festival (Ghost Festival) of chanting “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (the Sutra)” on August 19, 2018. At the beginning, the Teacher encouraged us to experience the depth and breadth of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s great wishes with heart in the process of chanting. Although it’s hard for us mortal to attain the state of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, we at least can make vows to deliver ourselves and help ourselves get rid of troubles. When our vexations are lessened, we can naturally radiate positive energy to the beings around us.

Thank our Teacher, Susan Duan, for leading all the members of the Association and the relatives to chant the “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva” together on September 3, 2017. The Teacher taught us to dedicate all the merits of chanting the Sutra to all beings of innumerable worlds, wishing all the beings who are in the painfulness, vexations and karma can have causes and conditions to connect with the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and step on the path of enlightenment making themselves free from sufferings and gain happiness, realize the truth and restore the nature of pureness.

The charity fundraising for rebuilding classrooms for GK primary school in Nepal in May 2016 was not able to be accomplished because the application for setting up the Association of Pure Buddhist (APB) was in progress at that time. But our compassionate Teacher was not willing to delay the support of helping the children’s needs so that she faced with the dilemma and bore great pressure. On the one side, the Teacher had to protect the APB about to be set up so that she was reluctant not to open the merits for the students. On the other side, she wisely took flexible action to collect several kindhearted donors' and students' donations and transferred all the funds to the local school. Thank our Teacher's compassion and wisdom to make it best of both worlds--the wish of making the children of GK primary school have classrooms was accomplished and the legal procedure of our classroom's transformation was taken into account. And now the classroom rebuilding was completed, we would like to share this good news with everyone willing to contribute but not able to put in practice at that time last year.
