Good morning, the whole world. 吃飽沒?This is Max Juan speaking from Taiwan. The first podcast to speak Taiwanese and English.
Today is Taiwan’s Double Tenth Day, and I’m honored to be able to launch a new episode on National Day. Wow, it’s also my honor to introduce this book. The book is called 《制心 蔡志忠的微笑人生》, the author is 蔡志忠, and this book is like his autobiography.
Tsai is a well-known cartoonist who has created many famous cartoons, and he is also successful in many areas. He was born in Changhua in 1948, and he should be 73 years old now. When he was 4 years old, he found his way in life. When he was 12 years old, he was admitted to National Changhua Senior High School. By the way, I was also graduated from National Changhua Senior High School, but now the school system is different from before.
蔡志忠是著名的漫畫家，創作了許多著名的漫畫，在許多領域也取得了成功。他1948年出生在彰化，今年應該73歲了。 4歲那年，他找到了自己的人生道路。 12歲時考入國立彰化高級中學。順便一提，我也是國立彰化高中畢業的，但是現在的學制和以前不同了。
When Tsai was 15 years old, he went to Taipei and became a professional cartoonist. When he was 29, he started a cartoon company. Then he went to Japan to draw Chinese traditional philosophy into comics. He was also a bridge champion. He studied physics and Buddhism , and became a monk in 2020.
Hearing that there are so many legendary stories about Tsai, we would like to ask whether he has an extraordinary background? In fact, he was born in an ordinary family in the countryside of Taiwan. Although Tsai did not have a prominent family background, he knew his future life when he was 4 years old. His father gave him a small blackboard in order to teach him how to write. From then on, he knew that he would draw pictures for the rest of the life, because he painted well and he was happy to draw. It’s a big deal. Many people don’t know the purpose of life even they are old.
You may think Tsai is a genius, and he is so lucky that he found his destiny when he was so young. What he inspired me most was that he never stop learning, never stop asking questions, and never stop searching answers. According to Tsai, he said that a teacher told him that learning is to learn and ask. As a result, if Tsai had any questions he didn’t understand, he would ask the teacher. All kinds of questions, including life, the universe, physics, and time. Although the teacher was not able to answer all the questions, Tsai was very grateful to the teacher. First, the teacher encouraged students to ask questions, then Tsai has learned a habit of finding answers by himself.
I remembered that the first time I read Tsai’s comic books. When I was a junior high school student, I saw his comic books in the library. At that time, I didn’t know a lot of Chinese philosophies. I felt it was difficult, and these things were far away from me, but because It was a comic style, so I was interested, and I went to the library to borrow two Chinese Traditional Culture comics, “Zhuangzi Speaks: The Music of Nature”, ”The Dao Speaks:Whispers of Wisdom”. Although I didn’t fully understand what Zhuangzi and Laozi’s thoughts are, I felt that these knowledge are not very far away from me. The characters he drew were so cute.If I want, I can continue to study these philosophies, and there are many ways to learn.
Tsai believes that thinking must be ahead of effort, to find what you love, and to choose what you are good at to study. As long as everyone changes his thinking, everyone can be a hundred times better. We can actually achieve the highest efficiency through our own methods. If you determine your goal, you must act and make your dream come true. Thank you for listening today. Meet you on the air next time. Bye-bye.
