This is a story about a young boy and his mother’s journey between two worlds: one with conflicting life values and one that fosters compassion and alleviates suffering. Despite their differences, the mother-son pair, through abundant love and respect, finally came to embrace a new vision together.
Born and raised in Northern California, Christopher Yang, nicknamed Xiao Niu(Little Calf), is gentle, kind-hearted, and soft-spoken. His mother, Jessica Su, worried that her son’s innocence would not fare well with the individualistic values of society, and she hoped to shape him into a more well-rounded and “street smart” person.
At the age of four, Christopher attended Tzu Chi Academy in San Jose, California, to begin his Mandarin lessons; in class, he became fascinated by Tzu Chi’s charity missions, and he found his place at the Jing Si Abode, the spiritual home of all Tzu Chi volunteers. Twelve-year-old Christopher, inspired by the teachings of Master Cheng Yen, grew determined to carry out Master’s great vow as his own lifelong mission—to work “for Buddha’s teachings, for sentient beings.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
 
Dharma Master Cheng Yen was born in Cingshuei Township, Taichung County, Taiwan in 1937. When she took refuge with Venerable Yin-shun in 1963, he gave her six simple words of instruction, “For Buddha’s teachings, for sentient beings.” In 1966 she established the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation. She continues to tirelessly work to help people realize the Buddha’s compassion and the joy of the Dharma in their lives.
 
Under Master Cheng Yen’s kind and compassionate leadership, the Tzu Chi Foundation has grown into an international Buddhist charity recognized for its compassionate relief efforts. Following the teachings of the Tzu Chi School of Buddhism and the Jing Si Dharma lineage, the foundation’s four major missions are Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanistic Culture. These missions, along with International Relief, Environmental Protection, Community Volunteerism, and Bone Marrow Donation, comprise the Eight Great Dharma-footprints. Tzu Chi volunteers work directly with people in need, providing comfort and aid with the spirit of Great Love that transcends boundaries of race, nationality, and religion.
