Lotus on Water and Nanyang Technological University launched the Lotus on Water Chinese Culture Publication Endowment Fund on 6 July 2022. The aim is to support the development of the Chinese Department and its many students in the faculty. I was honoured to be able to attend such a wonderful academic event.
Master Yun and Lotus on Water has always been funding the education sector as Master Yun believes that education is very important so that our future generations are equipped to better society. Nanyang Technological University was Master Yun´s alma mater, where he graduated with First Class Honours in Chinese.
Master Yun and Lotus on Water launched this Publication Fund to contribute to the education sector, especially Chinese culture that he hold most dear in his heart!
In fact, to recognise outstanding NTU students and their thesis, Lotus on Water launched the Lotus on Water Gold Medal and Book Prize since 2013. As well as sponsoring 雏凤清声, a compilation of Lotus on Water Gold Medal and Book Prizes thesis.
Some think Lotus on Water is crazy to launch an Endowment Fund during the pandemic. In this uncertain times when people are tightening their pockets and struggling to survive the negative ramifications of the lockdown and economic collapse. However, Lotus on Water launched this Publication Endowment Fund, contributing a sum of SGD 132,000.
Crazy? Maybe a bit. However, I think this "crazy" was able to happen because of careful planning. I have witnessed how intense did Master Yun and company brainstormed and meditated to overcome the obstacles in their way.
Today, Master Yun has won numerous awards from China CCTV, received the Heart Sutra Seals. Lotus on Water has launched the International Art Beyond Museum series and most importantly, many more happy, prosperous and blessed clients.
