Chin-Tsai Liu


Chin-Tsai Liu was born in 1959 to a religious family. Her mother is a pious Buddhist, and therefore, she grew up meeting Abbots and Abbesses from different temples. They visited her mother to seek her mother's assistance in raising funds for: temple building, temple maintenance, and/ or monetary allowance for resident Bhikkhus and/or Bhikkhunis. Her mother never said no to their requests. She witnessed her mother go everywhere to raise funds, and her mother always managed to complete all fund-raising tasks. Growing up in a Buddhist environment greatly impacted her, and eventually in 1979 she took refuge in the Triple Gems and she has followed her mother's footsteps—fundraising and completing tasks for temples.
