In recent years, under my supervision and blessing, some disciples and Dharma friends in USA, China, Taiwan, and Malaysia had started to conduct some Dharma activities on their own. Some worked together to offer Guru Chen's Complete Works and my works on-line for all to study freely. Some offered photos of cemeteries for us to visit virtually. Some posted photos of our Dharma activities for all to share. Some conducted, on a regular basis, releasing of lives, cemetery visits and/or mantra-sheets burning to help those in need. Some offered Dharma seals or Dharma images. Some offered Thangkas, especially the Guru Golden Guan Yin one was offered through much effort. Some printed books of Guru Chen's works, my works and related works, cards of holy images with mantras and praises, mantra sheets, mantra-wheel sheets or cards, hanging ornaments or bookmarkers containing holy images or Dharma seals and my poems in English or Chinese. Some made CD of Chanting Amitabha. Some had my poems used as lyrics in songs custom-made for them. All were done for free distribution.
All Dharma activities above were smoothly accomplished thanks to dedicated help from some disciples. And I am pleased to acknowledge their services here. This year 3 books in Chinese printed for free distribution, and their English versions are also printed for free distribution: Tang Poems in New Style，Aspects of Impermanence, Ways to Follow a Guru. Also the Chinese version of Sadhana of Bodhisattva Earth Treasure was reprinted for free distribution. In addition several kinds of holy images and mantra sheets were printed for free distribution.
