Shifu Jian Hu - ING 9/11 Commemoration
Master Jian Hu's life encompasses both Eastern and Western cultures. He came to the United States as a teenager and went on to graduate from California Institute of Technology and University of California, San Diego with a doctorate in Computer Science. In pursuit of a more meaningful existence, he renounced all worldly attachments to study under the auspices of the Great Master Wei Chueh at the Chung Tai Monastery in Taiwan. There, for many years, he immersed himself deeply in the study and practice of Buddhism and made great advances on the Dharma path of wisdom and compassion. He speaks fluently both in English and in Chinese, giving both elementary and advanced lessons in the meditative practice taught by the Buddha himself.
