Fat Buddhist monk lectures skinny university presidents
Taiwan’s rotund Buddhist monk Master Xing Yun lectured over 100 skinny university presidents at the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist campus on January 16, 2015. He essentially told them, studying is not that important. What is more important is to provide moral education and cultivate humanism in students.
He said the modern family places too much emphasis on egoism and apathy towards other people. He said: “We must have humanism in our hearts”. He said young people of today are afraid of suffering. “Suffering is an education and a process of becoming a good human being,” he explained.

Rotund Buddhist monk Master Xing Yun not only lectured the skinny university presidents, he also lectured the mentally malnourished educators and the spiritually void young people on the Chinese mainland. His comments about the modern family’s emphasis on “egoism” and “apathy towards other people”, fear of “suffering” of the young people of today, the lack of moral education and the lack of “humanism in our hearts” are all directed at the flaws of both family and school education on the Chinese mainland.
Confucianism taught the Chinese people humanism. Confucianism is still taught on Taiwan, in South Korea, and among the Chinese in Singapore and even in Hong Kong.
The Chinese Communist regime on the Chinese mainland practices legalism and has campaigned against Confucianism since 1949.
Confucianism exists on Taiwan and in South Korea. It does not exist on the Chinese mainland.
Rotund Buddhist Master Xing Yun practiced what is known in Chinese as “zhi sang ma huai” or “pointing to the mulberry tree to cuss at the Chinese pagoda tree,” or better yet, “pointing at the mulberry tree to curse at the Chinese scholar tree!” Yeah!
