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.

Run For Time 2

In every episode of Run For Time, four hunters are sent out to capture seventeen guest stars (or escapees). For every second the escapees survive, they gain 50 in-game credits, which will accumulate over the first eight episodes for the finals (ninth episode). If the escapees are caught by the hunters, they will be eliminated and are permitted to keep only 1/10 of their credits for that particular round. Meanwhile, they have to complete certain tasks thrown to them in a given time frame while hiding from the hunters. If the escapees find a “refuge”, they can choose to sign out and leave with the credits they have. If the escapees survive the whole course of 90 minutes, they will be handsomely rewarded with 270,000 credits. There is also a shop where they can spend their credits to gain tools to hide from or defeat hunters. The hunters cannot have any sort of communication with the escapees. They can only sprint when they see an escapee, and they cannot determine the escapee’s location by looking for the cameramen. If the escapees manage to hide or run away from the hunter, the hunter will give up the chase.
