He also serves as the Managing Vice-President and Administrator-General in the Hong Kong Buddhist Association and has provided counselling services to the staffs of the Hong Kong Hospital Authority for many years.


Ven. Hin Hung teaches meditation and has contributed to “repackage” the Teachings of Buddhism so as to make it more “user friendly” for people nowadays. His current research projects include “Awareness Training Program”, “Dharma Therapy”, “Neuroscience of meditation”, “Guangdong Yuqie Yankou” etc… He has a lot of publications on Buddhism, psychotherapy and Buddhist education.

Attaining the acceptance of truth (kṣānti) through the three kinds of knowledge and its modern-day application.

(The paper will be co-presented by Ven. Sik Hin Hung, Dr. Bonnie W. Y. Wu, and Ven. Sumana.)


According to early Buddhist text, to attain the truth (saccānupatti) there are 14 gradual steps which can be summarized into the three kinds of knowledge, the knowledge of learning, thinking and cultivation.  Among these fourteen steps, step number eight, ‘reflective acceptance of Dhamma (dhammanijjhānakkhanti)’ is of great significance. In this presentation, the importance of ‘reflective acceptance’ and the Mahayana teaching of the three acceptances (kṣānti-s) will be discussed.  Furthermore, how the three kinds of knowledge and ‘reflective acceptance’ can contribute toward the development of modern day psychosocial intervention will also be presented.
