From the moment Ven. Shih De Yuan, Ven. Shih De Cheng, and Ven. Shih De Huang set foot in Chicago, Illinois, on August 12, 2023, the Tzu Chi family surrounded them with love and care. The three Dharma Masters flew in from Taiwan, where they live in the Jing Si Abode in Hualien alongside Ven. Dharma Master Cheng Yen. They had come to join the Tzu Chi delegation participating in the Parliament of the World’s Religions (PoWR) that would run from August 14 to 18 at the McCormick Place Lakeside Center on Chicago’s lakefront.
