TIME:精神領袖 證嚴法師
      2011年4月23日 慈濟基金會 由美國時代雜誌(TIME)所評選,2011年全球最具影響力的百大人物名單揭曉,慈濟基金會創辦人證嚴上人是唯一上榜的台灣人。連著兩年,台灣的慈善人物接連獲得如此的殊榮,顯示著台灣的愛心受到世界的肯定,正也證實了上人所言:「台灣無以為寶,以愛為寶!」
Zoher Abdoolcarim在時代雜誌,「2011年全球最具影響力的百大人物」專欄裡,寫下他所認識的上人。

【時代雜誌原文】
根據佛敎的敎導,苦是生命中難以逃避的,但是每人都有生命的潛在本質去克服它。台灣的證嚴法師就是這種精神的化身。
身為一位宗敎導師,現年七十三歲的證嚴法師有著無比超凡的品格。然而他也同時是一個務實的、深具理念的、擁有五十個國家分會所、與一千萬個會員與志工的人道組織之領導人。慈濟基金會以驚人的動員救災能力馳名於全世界。他們出現在各種災難現場提供各項救援物資給受難的災民。慈濟志工與救援專家每每即時出現在災區,發放熱食,提供醫療救助、毛毯、以及保暖的衣物。在長期救助部份,慈濟援建住房、醫療院所、學校等。在苦難中受到慈濟幫助的人數已經難以計數。
佛敎也敎導世人要種下好的因果(亦即好的思想與行為),人就能在重生轉世後,達到生命更高、更好的境界。雖然來生未可知,但在此生,證嚴法師已經是一位聖者DHARMA MASTER CHENG YEN, FOUNDER OF BUDDHIST TZU CHI FOUNDATION, NAMED ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE’S TIME 100
(TIME’S ANNUAL LIST OF THE 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD)

(San Dimas, CA, USA)—TIME named Dharma Master Cheng Yen, the founder of Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, to the 2011 TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. The full list and related tributes appear in the May 2 issue of TIME, available on newsstands on Friday, April 22, and now at?time.com/time100.
Dharma Master Cheng Yen founded the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation in 1966, at the age of 29. From the first 30 supporters, housewives who saved two cents from their grocery money each day to help the poor, the Foundation has grown to nearly 10 million volunteers and supporters in 50 countries and has provided disaster relief in 70 countries to people suffering from disasters such as the Southeast Asia tsunami, Myanmar cyclone, floods in the United States and Australia, and earthquakes in Turkey, Pakistan, Sichuan China, Haiti, Chile and Japan.
Dharma Master Cheng Yen deeply believes that all people are capable of the same great compassion as the Buddha. True compassion, however, is not just having sympathy for another's suffering—it is to reach out to relieve that suffering with concrete actions. In founding Tzu Chi, Dharma Master Cheng Yen wished to give ordinary citizens the chance to actualize this compassion, which will bring inner peace and happiness to the individual, and pave the way for world peace and harmony.
The TIME 100 list, now in its eighth year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals. As TIME Managing Editor Richard Stengel has said of the list in the past, “The TIME 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it’s not a list of the smartest people in the world, it’s a list of the most influential people in the world. They’re scientists, they’re thinkers, they’re philosophers, they’re leaders, they’re icons, they’re artists, they’re visionaries. People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people.”
