Date: October 1-16, 2003
        At the invitation of Buddha’s Light International Association, Sophia Chao (Vice President & CEO of Chou Ta-Kuan Foundation) and Mother of Love Volunteer Group consisting of 15 members, visited Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile and other countries on October 1 to 16, 2003. They held 9 lectures about sharing life with the theme of “Returning to Earth, Good to Live”, evoking immense response from compatriots and international friends and clearly revealing boundless love.
        Sophia Chao graduated from the Department of Chinese, National Taiwan Normal University and migrated to Canada in 1985. She engaged in overseas Chinese education, and served as the principal of Union Mandarin School (Burnaby, B.C. Canada) for many years. Besides, she encouraged the overseas students not to forget their root, provided new places to learn ancestral language and culture and founded the Vancouver Study Guides and Pioneer Education Society.
        Ten years ago, Sophia Chao unexpectedly found she was likely to suffer from cancer, which offered her an opportunity to calmly face her life. Furthermore, with the help from her families and friends at home and abroad, she mastered that love and compassion were the great guiding strength when “meeting with life”. She often has good causes, delivers speeches in different places and make friends with different people, enlightening and pleasing herself.
