Master Miao Tsan's core belief–and the goal of his dharma teaching–is to lead people from every tradition toward an understanding of the all-pervasive, universally applicable truth. The universal truth transcends time, race and religion and is without exception. It is the only path for the dissolution of dualistic conflict and the resolution of disparate views among religions and their various sects.

Master Miao Tsan is the author of Just Use this Mind, The Origin is Pure, Intrinsic Awakened Nature, and Directly Actualize Buddhahood, originally published in traditional Chinese. Among those books, three have also been translated and published in English, Spanish, and simplified Chinese. He has conducted hundreds of meditation courses as well as Zen-Seven and Zen-Three retreats in the United States, Mexico and Taiwan. Additionally, he travels to major cities in China, Taiwan, Mexico and the United States, where he visits universities, medical centers and television/radio stations. Master Miao Tsan has vowed to spread and promote this universal truth around the world, through the wisdom of Mind teaching and the interpretive vehicles of contemporary knowledge. His goal is to open a universal path of wisdom and light for all beings coming and going in the Ten Directions.
