Nothing Gold Can Stay
Set in the years leading up to the fall of the Qing Dynasty. Zhou Ying is sold to the powerful Shen family by her foster father, yet successfully escapes her childish master Shen Xingyi by sneaking into merchant Wu Pin’s palanquin. The Wu family agreed to take her in after witnessing her remarkable business acumen, and she ends up marrying Wu Pin. After Wu Pin’s untimely death, Zhou Ying takes it upon herself to keep the family business afloat and take care of the Wu household.
On the other hand, Shen Xingyi has also decided to turn over a new leaf, and is now Zhou Ying’s biggest competitor. Shen Xingyi’s love for the heroine is initially unrequited, though Zhou Ying eventually acknowledges that she has developed romantic feelings for him. However, they both realize their personal affections are of little importance in the face of political upheaval, and Shen Xingyi joins the reformists advocating modernization of the Qing Dynasty after returning from an overseas education.

A Path to True Happiness
The teachings of venerable Master Chin Kung.
1.Buddhism is the most profound and wholesome education directed by the Buddha toward all people.
2.The content in Buddha Shakyamuni’s forty-nine years of teaching describes the true reality of life and the universe. Life refers to oneself, universe refers to our living environment.
3.Those who possess a complete and proper understanding of life and the universe are called Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. Those who lack the understanding are called ordinary people.
4.Cultivation is changing the way we think, speak, and act toward people and matters from an erroneous way to a proper way.
5.The guideline for cultivation is understanding and awakening, proper views and purity. Understanding and awakening is to be without delusion, proper views is without deviation, and purity is without pollution. This can be achieved by practicing the Three Learnings of self-discipline, concentration, and wisdom.
6.The Three Conditions are the foundation of cultivation and study. When interacting with people, accord with the Six Harmonies and when interacting with society, practice the Six Principles. Follow the ten lessons taught by Samantabhadra Bodhisattva and dedicate one’s mind to everlasting purity and brightness. These complete the purpose of the Buddha’s teachings.
