Looking at the 5 core values of Sian Chay: Forgiveness, compassion, universal love, gratitude and blessings, you will notice that “forgiveness, compassion, and universal love” come from inner cultivation, life perspectives, life philosophy, and an attitude of gratitude and brightness towards life. These can solve many problems affecting physical and mental health, social harmony, interpersonal relationship, conflicts, and ignorance. I hope everyone can practice these values and integrate them into their lives.
