In the 1940s, as the fate of the Chinese people and the dignity of Chinese Buddhism fell into the nadir, a 14-year-old boy was ordained to be a Buddhist monk in Jiangsu Province, China. Since then he has embarked on a journey to pursue and spread the Dharma for nearly 70 years.
Master Sheng Yen cultivated himself between the Buddhist masters before him and his baby-boomer disciples, between the advanced West and the East that was running to catch up, between the gradually sophisticated secular world and the slowly weakened religious faith, and between life and death.
In the meantime, the course of his life also oscillated between conflicts and reconciliations, between tradition and innovation, between past and future, and between taking on and letting go. Instead of a propagandist style seen in conventional religious films, MASTER SHENG YEN tries to present the master’s unordinary life with a straightforward, honest and ordinary attitude, and this is exactly the sentiment that today’s world needs to embrace and say, “Thus I have heard.”
