As a Daoist I am brought up to believe that people are nourished by heaven and earth.
As a Daoist I am brought up to believe that people are nourished by heaven and earth. Daoism taught me to regard both with gratitude and to measure the wealth of the world not in terms of money but by the bountifulness of species. Living in a Daoist temple, closeness to nature and harmony with other species is also crucial for the wellbeing of a Daoist. As the environment deteriorates, it is therefore more important to care and defend our living planet and to make it a better place.
As a Daoist, I will continue to exercise the Daoist teaching to follow and protect nature and nature’s species, so man can enjoy a harmonious relation with all of Heaven’s creation.

I am one of the main drivers of the Daoist Environmental Eight Years Plan ; I wrote extensively and spoke against the use of endangered species in TCM. As one of the most famed Daoist leaders in China and a member of the people’s congress, I have advised the government of China to protect our environment and living planet."
