In Chinese ‘Chuang Yen’ means adornment.
In Buddhism, we use Wisdom and Compassion to adorn our world. These two are the foundations of Buddhism. Buddha’s teachings are about how to develop our own wisdom to solve our own problems.
The main obstacle of developing wisdom is our ego view (self centered). Compassion is one of the tools to loosen up that view, and clear the obstacles. By helping others, we can see our own problems. This is how we can start to cultivate, to attain wisdom. In other words, with wisdom we turn ourselves from our own worst enemies to our best teachers.
