He pointed out that Master Hsing Yun with wisdom and compassion viewed education as an important aspect of life. Hence he is committed to education and talent cultivation. After the inauguration of Hsing Ma Temple, it will focus on promoting Buddhism and education, so that the neighboring residents can develop both facets at the same time.
