Educational Program

by Venerable Master Hsing Yun

Fo  Guang  Shan  advocates  the  “The  Three  Acts  of Goodness,”  which  are  say  good  words,  do  good  deeds and  thinking  good  thoughts.  Buddhism  teaches  that the  source  of  unwholesome  karma comes  from  our body, speech and mind. Therefore, in our cultivation, we should start from these three areas.

The three karmas of body, speech, and mind, as explained by Buddhism, can be practiced both positively and negatively.

Therefore, following the three acts of goodness affects our future immensely. It even affects the whole community and nation, for  the positive and negative morale of a society depends on the three karmas of body, speech, and mind of its citizens.

Let  us  all  come  together  to  pursue  the “Three  Acts  of Goodness,” always striving to say good words, do good deeds, and think good thoughts. [...read more]

The Three Acts of Goodness is a worldwide movement of Fo Guang Shan that espouses self and societal transformation through the purification of our actions, speech and thoughts and the cultivation of wisdom and compassion.

The Three Acts of Goodness are Do Good Deeds, Speak Good Words and Think Good Thoughts. These three acts affect our day-to-day interaction with people and our surrounding, mold our character and improve our well-being. By following the Three Acts of Goodness, there is bound to be a bright future for the world.
