What Do People Say about the Master

"When I listen to Master Sheng Yen's presentation of Chan Buddhist teachings, my immediate and very profound feeling is that I am listening to words of wisdom from someone who is very experienced and a great practitioner."
----His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama

"Chan Master Sheng Yen is a great teacher and I have great confidence in his scholarship and wisdom. I feel privileged to be his friend, and admire what he has been doing for the Buddhadharma in the East as well as in the West."
----Thich Nhat Hanh, author of The Miracle of Mindfulness

"Master Sheng Yen is easily approachable and talks in-depth. I really admire his benevolence and respect his scholarship and virtues,"
----Dr. Lee Yuan-Tseh, President of Academia Sinica

"Master Sheng Yen is strict to himself but kind and attentive to the others. His practice and study are like the two wheels of a car. One wheel is for practice, the other wheel is for Buddhist studies, unlike some other Chan teachers who only leans toward one kind of teaching."
----Professor Kenyo Mitomo of Rissho University, Japan

"In front of you I feel like a child who knows nothing! Master Sheng Yen is one of the busiest people whom I have ever met. However, Master Sheng Yen even thinks that he has nothing to do. This is the first time that I have ever heard about such kind of thinking,"
----Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

"Master Sheng Yen is actually my most important benefactor. If at that time I used this small amount of money to buy antiques or calligraphy and paintings instead, I would never be as happy as I am today. The Buddhist scriptures teaches about "sowing the fields of merit"; Master Sheng Yen is my merit field."
----C. T. Shen, the layman who supported the Master's Doctoral Studies
