The Tzu Chi USA Journal is the official magazine of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, or Tzu Chi USA, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing compassion and relief in the US and beyond. Our quarterly publication features articles on contemporary issues in humanitarianism as well as in-depth reflections from within the world of Tzu Chi. Each edition of the Journal centers on a specific theme, features beautiful photos, and always includes inspirational teachings of Tzu Chi’s founder, Dharma Master Cheng Yen.
