  I am so inspired by Asha and all of the Lotus Scholarship students. Although each student has his or her own story, one common thread is the ability to triumph over adversity and the strong belief that education is the key to a better life. For these students, graduating high school and going to college fulfills not only their own dreams, but also the dreams of their entire family. Thank you, to SYL Foundation donors for supporting the education goals of these very deserving students. Regrettably, I am unable to tell you about every student and talk about every health and education program funded by SYL Foundation, but I invite you to visit our table in the back of the event hall to learn more.
  Asha和所有蓮花獎學金的學生,給了我很大的鼓舞。雖然每個學生都有屬於自己的故事,但其中的共通點就是能夠戰勝逆境,並堅信教育是改善生活的關鍵;對於這些學生來說,高中畢業和上大學不僅實現了自己的夢想,也實現了整個家庭的夢想。感謝盧勝彥佈施基金會的捐贈者,支持這些非常值得幫助的學生的教育目標。遺憾的是,礙於時間有限,我無法在此告訴大家每個學生的情況,向大家細說盧勝彥佈施基金會資助的每項健康和教育計畫,但我誠摯的邀請大家撥空到大廳後面,參觀我們的攤位或上基金會網站,以便了解更多訊息。
  This year, SYL Foundation has provided grants to 23 health and education organizations and 38 Lotus Scholarship students while continuing to work on ways to support immigrants and refugees as they face growing challenges. From the information we shared and the organizations you heard from today, it is evident how the Foundation’s work is impacting people’s lives and you, our donors, are what make it all possible.
  今年,盧勝彥佈施基金會將分發贊助金給23個健康與教育機構以及38名蓮花獎學金學生。我們同時會繼續研究各種幫助移民和難民的方式,協助他們所面臨著越來越多的挑戰。從我們今天分享的訊息,以及與我們合作的機構所言當中,很明顯的看出,基金會所努力的各項工作,確確實實地對人們的生活,產生正面的影響。而所有支持基金會的師兄、師姐們,是讓這一切夢想可以成真的主要原因。

Part II: Looking Forward
第二部分:前瞻未來

  Education and Healthcare are the essential rungs in the ladder that lift people from poverty. SYL Foundation provides grants to organizations, which in turn serve thousands of men, women, and children here in our community and around the world. These people are closer today to living their dreams than they could ever be without your generous support. Every dollar given to an SYL Foundation grant recipient is transformed into an investment that yields a return for generations.
  教育和醫療照顧是幫助人們脫離貧困的重要階梯;盧勝彥佈施基金會提供補助金給各個機構,而這些機構則依序地提供服務給社區和世界各地數以千計的男女老少。如果沒有您們的慷慨解囊與支持,這些人今天將難以實現他們的夢想。 我們承諾大家,捐助給盧勝彥佈施基金會的每一塊錢,在受益者身上,轉變成為影響他們好幾世代的絕佳回報。
  After learning more about the Foundation’s work and seeing the people you helped, I hope you are proud of the good work that you, Foundation supporters, help us accomplish. Please continue to donate to SYL Foundation so that we can continue to invest in the health and education of those who need it most.
  在詳細了解基金會的工作內容,並看了受到幫助的人群之後,希望每一位在座的捐助者都能感到驕傲,因為有大家做為基金會的後盾,才能促成這些令人感動的故事。請繼續捐助盧勝彥佈施基金會,讓我們一起努力,繼續承擔起尚未完成的使命。
  We now conclude the video with these words from our founder:
  Buddha’s teaching can be summed up in a maxim: Do no evil, cultivate all that is good, and purify the mind. By fully involving ourselves in performing good deeds, distracting thoughts are swept away as a result. SYL Foundation is precisely doing the work of cultivating good deeds and is doing a good job. Please continue to support SYL Foundation.
  現在請靜聽師尊勉勵大家的金句作為結語:
  所謂佛教就是「諸惡莫作,眾善奉行,自淨其意。」亦即是藉著行善佈施的因緣,來掃除雜念。盧勝彥佈施基金會也就是在做眾善奉行的工作.盧勝彥佈施基金會做得很好.請大家繼續支持盧勝彥佈施基金會。
  Now the leaders from each of the 23 grantee organizations as well as the Lotus Scholarship students are standing here with me. Thank you, grant recipients, for all the inspiring work that you do. We look forward to learning from you through this partnership, and together, we can ensure that quality health and education is within reach for all. Congratulations, Lotus Scholarship Students, we are proud to support your pursuit of a college education and have high hopes that upon graduation you, in turn, will help others in need.
  此時此刻,與我站在一起的,是來自23個受贈單位的領導人,以及獲得蓮花獎學金的學生。感謝所有的受贈機構,以及您所做的一切鼓舞人心的工作。我們期待能通過這夥伴關係,向您們學習合作,確保需求的人們都能獲得優質的健康和教育資助!恭喜蓮花獎學金學生!我們感到榮幸,能夠贊助您們追求大學教育的夢想!期待未來您們畢業後,能累積足夠的能力,回頭來幫助其他有需要的人。
  As we celebrate the Foundation’s 10-year anniversary, we must express our deepest gratitude to our Founder, Living Buddha Lian Sheng, without whom none of us would be gathered here today. 51 years ago (since 1967), he began wielding the power of a pen and now 267 published books later, he continues to write an essay a day. He is truly extraordinary and his writing is what inspired our commemorative gift: a symbolic pen. Do come visit our table if you haven’t received one.
  在慶祝基金會成立10週年之際,我們必須向基金會的創辦人──蓮生活佛盧勝彥師尊致上最高的敬意;沒有祂,今日我們也無緣共聚一堂。自1967年,也就是51年前,師尊開始以筆發揮神力寫書來引導大眾學佛修行。至今師尊寫了268本書仍不斷地每天寫一篇文章;師尊的超然是獨一無二的.今天基金會感恩師尊寫作的精神,特別製造紀念筆贈送給大家.這支筆象徵師尊的恆心與毅力,以及源源不斷的智慧與方便法門。如果您還沒有拿到這一支具有意義的紀念筆,請到我們的攤位洽詢。
  最後,我要感謝大家陪伴著基金會,走過10年行善佈施的歲月。接下來的十年,期待大家以愛心繼續支持,讓「盧勝彥佈施基金會」能永不停歇的去利益更多眾生。 感謝大家,有您們真好!嗡嘛呢唄咪吽!
