Heng Jen Shr’s affinities lead her to Gold Buddha Monaster in Vancouver, Canada, in 1984 when the temple was first established. Watching the Venerable Master from a distance during his precious vistis, she brought forth the Bodhi reslove. Seeing the Master help peple so unselfishly, untiringly, wisely, and expediently, Heng Jen Shr, then still a layperson, was inspired to take up the Bodhisattva Way. She began to teach in Gold Buddha's weekend school and to work hard at serving the monastery.
For more than a decade she had the opportunity to watch, listen, and learn as the Venerable Master taught his disciples. She cherishes those lessons and dedicates herself to perpetuating the Master's teachings.
Now, with her busy schedule of teaching at the Girls‘ School, Heng Jen Shr deeply believes that teaching and cultivation, in fact, are one. Whenever she observes students trying to overcome their problems and difficulties, Heng Jen Shr asys:“I only reflect on myself: I realize I have troubled my parents, my teachers, and my friends. But with their understanding and forgiveness, I know that kindness and compassion are something I will have to work on my whole life, or even life after life.”
