Canada China Cultural Exchange Center
A not-for-profit organization registered in Ontario, Canada and Beijing, China. Its main purpose is to inherit Master Nan and Master Zhang's mission - to integrate Classic Western Cultures and Chinese Culture; in order to build a harmonious, cooperative “culture railway” for all human beings’ welfare on Earth towards a brighter future. This belief that we can build a brighter future for all human being is based on that the roots of western cultures and Chinese culture are interlinked and all come from one source - the universal Truth, Good, and Beauty.
All human beings are brothers together all over the world.
Master Nan Huajin (Nan Huai-Chin)
One of the most renowned and revered cultivator in China. A great teacher in all three traditions of spiritual cultivation in China, namely the Confucious tradition, the Buddhism tradition and the Taoism tradition, he has written more than 30 books in these subjects. His books are always insightful and lively. He speaks with the authority of first hand experience - being a great scholar, a great action master and a great teacher at the same time. Someone with such an aggregate of qualities are hard to find in this arid age in which words and deeds rarely match. These are no empty words! For a glimpse of his experience, we note that he studied the ancient Chinese martial arts in his youth and mastered the works of Confucian and Taoist sages at the age of seventeen. Later on he taught at the Central Military Academy and studied social welfare at the Jin Ling(Nan Jing) University. In 1942, at the age of twenty four, he went into a three-year cultivation retreat in the Er-Mei Mountains, one of the four sacred Buddhist pilgrimage sites in China. It was there that he verified his experience against the Chinese Tripitaka and composed gathas for each of the thirty two chapters of the Diamond Sutra (Published in his book What is the Diamond Sutra All About.) In 1945, he left for Tibet to learn from Tibetan Masters and was conferred the official title of Vajra Master by the Hutuktu (high ranking incarnate) Kung Ka of the Kagyu tradition. He is also the most eminent student of the renowned Ch'an Master Yuan Huan-Xian, making him an adept in both the Ch'an and the Tantric traditions.
His books are extremly popular in China and some of his more popular books went into 20th edition in Taiwan. There is no question that his teaching has transformed many young intellectuals and is one of the main forces of genuine buddhist resurgence in China. His books are also well respected by the academicians. In the words of Thomas Cleary, the famous scholar and translator of Chinese cultivation works."There is no question that Master Nan's work is a cut above anything else available from modern authors, either academic or sectarian, and I would like to see his work gain its rightful place in the English speaking world. ... [His] studies contain broad learning in all three main traditions of Chinese thought, Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist. Although this comprehensive purview was common to the greatest minds of China since the T'ang dynasty, it is rare among scholars today."
Master Zhang Shangde (Chang Shang-Te)
One of the most renowned and revered cultivator in China. A great teacher in the Buddhism tradition, especially in Vijnaptimatrata. Professor Zhang Shangde was born in Hunan, and is now 79 years old. He was graduated from Taiwan University, Philosophy Institute, and has been a professor for various universities. As the most eminent student of the renowned Master Nan Huaijing for over 50 years, he is the founder of the Dharma Avademy. He is now living at a monastry in Taiwan and is teaching Vijnaptimatrata for over 20 years
He has written several books in these subjects, and has translated several western classic philosophy books. He speaks with the authority of first hand experience - being a great scholar, a great action master and a great teacher at the same time. Someone with such an aggregate of qualities are hard to find in this arid age in which words and deeds rarely match.

Thanks and Best Regards,
Answer to Mr. Michael Dong:
Dear Mr. Michael Dong,
You suggested establishing the Canada China Cultural Exchange Center at Ontario, Canada. This organization is to promote the elite cultures of the West and the East, and to make peace and happiness with all human beings. Your website has mentioned the Great Master Nan Huajin and myself.
The project to integrate elite cultures between the West and the East is like the creation of a new world. It is not easy and should be put forward by a work team instead of a small number of people.
Where to start and how to start the team will need to be justified based on real situation and forthcoming opportunities.
The most important thing is how to move along by yourself now.
All human resources and organisation system should be on the right track.
This is the first time in human history to
Initiate such project and I believe Chinese people can complete it.
I suggest that this English website is also registered at Beijing, China.
