Venerable Hsin Ping entered the Buddhist sangha in 1963. Hsin Ping went on to receive the precepts under Master Tao Yuan of Hai Hui Temple in Keelung in 1963, and went on to attend Shou Shan Buddhist College and the Chinese Buddhist Research Institute at Fo Guang Shan. For lengths of time during the earliest days of Fo Guang Shan, Hsin Ping was stationed in the construction quarters. In 1973, he became first in line of Fo Guang Shan’s order of precedence.
In April 1995, Hsin Ping died suddenly after suffering from illness. A portion of his ashes are interred in the United States at the Buddhist columbarium at Rose Hills in California, the rest are in the Longevity Memorial Park in Fo Guang Shan.
The Venerable Hsin Ting served the rest of Hsin Ping's term until 1997, when he was elected head abbot.
