Master Lian Tzi is a Buddhist master in the Vajrayana tradition, lineage yoga master, Buddhist lecturer and published author. She was awarded the 2017 British Columbia Community Achievement Award,[1] for outstanding community service. The British Columbia Achievement Foundation is an independent foundation established and endowed by the province of BC to celebrate excellence in the arts, humanities, enterprise and community service. Master Lian Tzi was recognized for her continuous work on improving the lives of disadvantaged youths, seniors, low-income families and the homeless in Vancouver's poorest neighborhood, the downtown eastside.

Master Lian Tzi is the current President of the Lotus Light Charity Society's Vancouver Chapter. She is also the founding President of Lotus Light Charity Society, an international charitable organization founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1993 with over 90 chapters worldwide with each chapter supporting local community causes and contributing to global humanitarian causes such was earthquake and famine relief. The charity’s mandate is education, medical assistance, social assistance, cultural awareness and emergency disaster relief.

In July 2013, the Lotus Light Charity Society's Vancouver Chapter organized a public World Peace & Harmony charity event to promote the values of peace, harmony, compassion and selfless community service. The guest of honour was The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia who was in attendance to deliver the event's keynote speech.[2]

Master Lian Tzi established the Lotus Light Charity Society Vancouver Chapter's Annual Winter Charity Drive in 1986 and in subsequent years developed the Sleeping Bag program[3] to distribute sleeping bags and winter care packages to the thousands of impoverished residents and homeless in the local Vancouver downtown eastside community, in partnership with the homeless outreach program of the Vancouver Police Department, BC Ambulance Service and other community service centers.[4] She also established the Worldwide Annual Community Rice Donation program, which has contributed millions of pounds of rice since its inception in 1995 to food banks around the world, and has contributed over 300,000 lbs of rice locally to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank to date.

A dynamic role model for community volunteerism and philanthropy, Master Lian Tzi continues to serve her community as an esteemed Buddhist teacher, a champion of the neediest members of society and a source of genuine inspiration for her dedication to charitable work through upholding the values of the Lotus Light Charity Society motto: “through caring and learning, we help to build a better tomorrow”.
