Making an Additional Pair of Baby Shoes to Support Tzu Chi’s Charity Work

When we left our secular life behind to enter the Tathagata’s family, we did not bring anything with us. Master did not allow us to bring any money from our secular life either, saying that it would create a sense of dependency in us. At that time, there was no money to buy food, so we relied on the wages from Master De Rong’s knitting to support us. We also planted vegetables periodically.
