February 15, 1997
After performing a Chinese New Years exhibition with his Disciple,
Bo Jie-Ming, the President of the Utah Society of Chinese surprised
Buddha Zhen by presenting a special award.
This plaque was explained
to honor Buddha Zhen for his many years of service and duty to
the Chinese of Utah and his portrayal of traditional Chinese
"This is one
of my all-time favorite awards. Unlike many of the prizes I've
won, this award was given to me out of love and appreciation.
I wish I had more awards of this sentiment."
Thank You Letters to Buddha Zhen:
