Dear Venerable Chao-hwei,

 

Thank you so much for making it possible for me to watch the award ceremony today.

May I offer my hearty congratulations, not only on the award of the Niwano Peace Prize today, but also on your speech in which you spoke so powerfully, not for Buddhism or any particular religion, but for the rational and ethical foundation of all religions, and of course, of all sound secular ethical views as well.

I also appreciate your strong words on behalf of women, and against those who have used religious texts as a justification for keeping women in an inferior position, and for condemning people on the grounds of their sexual orientation or unconventional gender identity.

Apart from your speech, I enjoyed seeing the photos of you working with others for justice and to reduce suffering, for all sentient beings.

You are indeed a very worthy recipient of this distinguished award.

With best wishes

 

 

親愛的昭慧法師:

 

  非常感謝您提供機會,讓我得以觀賞今日的線上典禮。

  在此我想發自內心恭喜您,理由並非只因為您今天拿到庭野和平獎,也因為您鏗鏘有力的受獎致詞。您的演講不選擇代表佛教或任何特定宗教立場,而以所有宗教都包含的理性與道德基礎,以及一切擲地有聲的世俗倫理觀點為出發點。

  我也很欣賞您代表女性發出的聲音,您的發言字字堅定,不但對抗著那些運用宗教論典證成「女性次等」者,也反對運用經典的隻字片語譴責他人性傾向或非傳統性別認同的作法。

  除了聆聽您的受獎致詞外,我也很高興看到一些珍貴的畫面。照片中您與其他夥伴為了減輕眾生的痛苦,為了一切生命的公理正義,齊心努力。

  您獲頒此獎的確實至名歸。

  致上最佳的祝福
