Event Synopsis

“离苦得乐”是所有生物的本能。身为万物之灵的我们 - 有文字、有历史、有文明,对快乐与痛苦的思维和离苦得乐之道,当然更有认知。由于前人的睿智与刻苦,这一代的我们有幸享有前所未有的经社发展、优良的生活品质和完善的医疗体系,平均寿命也日益增长。但也因为如此,许多国人必须面对年老所带来的诸多不便。让我们一起向各代人学习,如何为我们的未来做准备。

All beings, human or otherwise, naturally avoid suffering and pursue happiness. Even as we do so, we grow and age, and subject ourselves to the ever-increasing odds of illness and debilitation. How do we understand and manage this? Surely there is a lot to learn from older persons and their caregivers.
