Ideals of the Tao Society

(1) In innate nature, enlighten sentient beings, and return to the origin.

(2) In acquired nature, transform customs, and realize a world of great harmony.

(3) Uphold the past and carry it forward, reviving the traditional Chinese cultural heritage.

These are the three grand aspirations of our venerable Patriarch and Matriarch. As disciples of Ji-Gong Living Buddha, our purpose is to assist our Patriarch and Matriarch in realizing these ideals and aspirations.
