An initiative driven by The D. H. Chen Foundation (“the Foundation”) since 2018 to curate motivational dialogues between people from different backgrounds, Buddhist Talk Series 「廷驊法雨」講座系列 aims to bring positive energy to the community so that people are well prepared in the face of adversity.
The five talks in the Series engaged venerable figures from Buddhist backgrounds and other professionals as speakers. The Series offered inspirational sharing on different life challenges and brought beams of hope to the crowd through the heart-to-heart conversation between Mr. Wong Cho-lam 王祖藍 and Venerable Guo Ngai 果毅法師 in the first talk「人生的考卷 – 心寄何處」; the fruitful exchange between renowned composer and singer Mr. Lowell Lo 盧冠廷 and Venerable Chang Lin 常霖法師 in the second talk「不羈之後的海闊天空」; and the rest of the three talks under「法師與神父對談」with Venerable Hin Hung 釋衍空法師 and Reverent Thomas Kwan 關俊棠神父.

In 2022, the Foundation commenced a new Talk Series「廷驊思語」 in order to uplift the spirits of the public who experienced the difficult years of COVID-19.
Partnered with The Centre for Spiritual Progress to Great Awakening (the “SPGA”), the first talk of the new Series 「生命.頌禮 Celebrating Life, Life Celebration」 was about self-care through the topic of life and death. Three speakers including Ven. Chuan Deng 傳燈法師, Abbess, In-charge of Buddhist Chaplain, Ms. Bobo Wong 黃慧慈, Registered Social worker in elderly service and Ms. Connie Wong 黃錦妍, Life Celebrant, shared their wisdom with us on how to get through the inevitable end-of-life moments.
Through the dialogues of minds and hearts, the Foundation believes the synergy created between all walks of life would create a bigger impact on individuals and society by large. With more positive energy, the Foundation is one step closer to the goal of building a compassionate society together.
