Development Training of Jianzhen’s Missionary Journey
Over one thousand years ago, Jianzhen, a monk of Daming Temple in Yangzhou, decided to travel east to preach Buddhism theories and spread the profound Chinese culture. And finally Monk Jianzhen became the founder of the Ritsugku Sect in Japan, Japanese medicine and the founder of Japanese beancurd industry, who was highly respected by both Chinese and Japanese people as well as the Buddhist community after going through thousands of risks. His spirit of rescuing the world by helping others and meanwhile improving himself as well as his poised and fearless power for action has been directing the later generations and entrepreneurs like a light tower.
However, what is the similarity between Jianzhen’s philosophy and the cross-country race? The common ground between them lies in the wilderness survival experience and the internal spirit when facing difficulties and frustrations. “Salvation of the world, sense of mission and boldness” is regarded as the spiritual core of the culture of Jianzhen’s Missionary Journey. And meanwhile, helping others while improving oneself is also true with the enterprises. The one who wants to send others to the opposite bank should have his own “ferryboat” and “power”. The original runway of cross-country race is developed in the barren mountains, in which the competitor can obtain the inspiration and power of achieving a new life as well as the “magic ferryboat” through the riding through gravel, mud and dense jungle, and through successive frustrations.
The fierce market competition witnesses winners and losers every day, behind which there are countless unseen hardships and setbacks. He who seeks success in a glittering industry should have a healthy body and the boldness to face up to setbacks, and this is the footstone for self-fulfillment and helping others. In the long life, a successful entrepreneur shall have the capability to tackle the setbacks as Monk Jianzhen who failed for 5 times out of 6 times’ attempts and the readiness to endure physical pain and mental monotonousness through the whole journey. The EMBA Program and the coming-of-age ceremony training has made the students more prepared physically and mentally in the face of failures.
