We are delighted that the school has been completed. We want to thank the board members who care about Fo Guang Shan’s education and have been watching Fo Guang Shan's growth and GMC's growth.

What is the essence, mission, and purpose of humanity? Where am I? What is the nature of the world and the universe I inhabit? What are the problems? What fundamental questions or obstacles hinder me from finding fulfillment? (In other words, how do I understand evil?) What are the solutions? How do I overcome obstacles to fulfillment? (In other words, how do I attain redemption?)" This exchange was not merely a superficial interview but rather a profound spiritual dialogue. Venerable Zhi Rong also actively sought the students' views on these questions from a Christian perspective, initiating a clash of religious theories. From their respective religious standpoints, both sides discussed the meaning of life, concepts of good and evil, and paths to solving dilemmas, leading to intellectual collisions and inspirations.
