Tzu Chi Buddhist University of Taiwan to present musical program at BYU Sept. 4

More than 20 students and faculty members from the Tzu Chi Buddhist University’s College of Technology in Taiwan will present “Love Transcends the Sky Line,” a modernistic fusion of Chinese operatic storytelling, Chinese sign language and music, Thursday, Sept. 4, at Brigham Young University.

The performance will begin at 2 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall of the Harris Fine Arts Center. Admission is free and the public is welcome. The event is sponsored by BYU’s David M. Kennedy Center for International Relations and the Linguisitcs Department of the College of Humanities.

The musical play portrays three important aspects of Chinese and Buddhist culture: filial piety or obedience to parents and family, respect and honor for teachers and mentors, and using selfless love for the benefit of others.

The Tzu Chi Buddhist Compassionate Relief Foundation is well known as one of the largest and most visible Buddhist sects in Taiwan and for its humanitarian service.

A new BYU study debunks the assumption that menstrual cycles disqualify women from exercise research. Analyzing women’s exercise performance across their menstrual cycles, researchers found no variability in endurance thresholds or performance: from workout to workout, women’s performance was just as consistent as men’s.
