A great transformation has been unveiled. We will either lead in the transformation, or follow it closely, or get eliminated. There is no a fourth way for us to choose. Lifechanyuan will usher in a new era (the Lifechanyuan era) for the mankind on this earth after 2013.Lifechanyuan is the last course for human beings to learn and follow :

The new era of mankind — Lifechanyuan Era has unveiled its curtain. It is being unfolded in full swing, in terms of both theory and practice. Every member of mankind should get to know the connotation of Lifechanyuan Era as early and quickly as possible, otherwise, he or she will certainly lag far behind.

You may actually refine yourself by immersing yourself in the world of laities; you may keep yourself aloof from the worldly affairs by involving yourself in them; you can accomplish your wish with your devotion; and you may make yourself outstanding from the ordinary by following the steps of the ordinary.

The end point of form is emptiness, not the nothingness but the deiformity. Immerse yourself in the deiformity and you become a celestial.

  • 1. 800 Values for New Era Human Being 800 Values for New Era Human being(Second Edition) Deiform Buddha Chapter 6:The Road to Celestial Being168. You may actually refine yourself by immersing yourself in the world oflaities; you may keep yourself aloof from the worldly affairs by involvingyourself in them; you can accomplish your wish with your devotion; and youmay make yourself outstanding from the ordinary by following the steps of theordinary.169. You can have the self only if you don’t have the self; you won’t have theself if you are encumbered by the self.170. The more you possess, the more trouble you will have; What is surplusmay prove a life-threatening burden to you.171. It is difficult to cultivate Tao, even more difficult than the cliff path ofSichuan or even more difficult than scaling the heaven; it is difficult to attaincelestial immortality, because it is difficult to get rid of the encumbrance of theworldly affairs.172. To attain celestial immortality, you must make more commitment, payingoff as soon as possible the debts you have owed for generations, and ridding lifeof the universal gravitation of human world, animal world, plant world, andinferno.
  • 2. 800 Values for New Era Human Being173. The end point of form is emptiness, not the nothingness but the deiformity.Immerse yourself in the deiformity and you become a celestial.174. Fame, power, wealth and rank are traps. Glory and humiliation, and favorand humbleness are obstacles. Only with little selfish desire and indifference tofavor and humiliation, can you embark on the road to celestial immortality. Thelack of selfish desire is the starting point of becoming a celestial being. If theselfishness is not banished, you will be bound by a life of a laity, and if thedesire is not extinguished, you may be engulfed by the fire of desire. If youwant to be a celestial being, you must decrease your selfishness and weakenyour desire, you must keep a sober mind in the face of fame, power and carnalpleasure, you should not be enslaved by material but use it at your will.175. Flunkies sacrifice their life for profits, literati sacrifice their life for fame,scientists sacrifice their life for duty, ordinary people sacrifice their life forfamily, politicians sacrifice their life for the state, saints sacrifice their life forthe world, and celestials sacrifice their life for Tao.176. Love nature, you can hear the sound of nature and understand its meaning,you can taste the profundity of the Creator, you can understand the sanctity andorder of the Greatest Creator, you can arouse your power of mercy andsympathy, you can treat everything in the universe equally, and you will beexempted from the vexation and worries resulting from the distinction betweenthe noble and the humble, and you can prevent yourself from being eliminatedby the principle of life.177. If you want to become a celestial, you must be detached from the worldlyaffairs and withdraw from the worldly pursuit. There is only one word todescribe the secular world: restlessness. There is only one word to depict thehuman world: noisiness. There is only one word to portray the fairyland:
  • 3. 800 Values for New Era Human Beingserenity. Transcendence over the worldly affairs means the great distance fromrestlessness and noisiness and a return to serenity.178. Each kind of life structure lives in its corresponding space. Animals rushabout on the earth, birds soar in the sky, bees buzz among the flowers, flies fleetto and fro between garbage piles, laities hustle and bustle in the privateownership of family, the sages wander freely in the public ownership, thecelestial being loiter in the non-ownership, and fairies follow their owninclinations in their own world. Chanyuan celestial undergoes transition fromthe private ownership to public ownership, to non-ownership, and finally to freeworld.179. One of the secrets for attaining celestial being is that we shall create thefuture and the fairyland in our consciousness. We shall first imagines ourselvesas celestial beings in our consciousness. “The different modes of thinking willcorrespond to different modalities of life forms”. If we are always envisioningthe life in the Thousand-year World, in the long run the structure of our life willbe developed toward that of Thousand-year World. When the conditions areright, we can go to the Thousand-year World. Others may think that you aredead, but actually you have departed the human world to enjoy the celestialbeing’s life in the Thousand-year World.180. Buddhism has theories of “five monastic precepts and ten kindnesses”, and“precepts, calmness, and wisdom”, Christianity has theories of original sinsand penance, and human ethics has theories of rules governing humanrelationships, while the theories of celestial immortality preach the exposition ofnature, freedom and pleasure, following the predestined relationship, freedomfrom restraint, and peripateticism.
  • 4. 800 Values for New Era Human Being181. If we are very tired and fatigued in life, we have strayed far from the Wayof celestial; if we are more and more happy in life, if we are more and moreunrestrained in life, then we are closer and closer to the Way of celestial.182. Swine must have the thinking of the swine keeper if they want to know themeaning of their life. Man must know the thinking of their keeper if they wantto know the meaning of their life. Anyone who knows the meaning of his lifehas achieved celestial.183. If you want to become a celestial being, you must strive to find the“spiritual pure land”. You must plan your life around “spiritual pure land”. Ifyou want to achieve celestial immortality, you must spread your love across theworld. If you want to achieve celestial immortality, you must pool in effort tobuild the home without marriage and family of Lifechanyuan.184. Eight major consciousnesses are involved in the process from the humanworld to the heaven, namely from human being to celestial being:(1). Consciousness of life. LIFE is an nonmaterial structure with spiritualism. Itundergoes endless transmigration without annihilation.(2). Consciousness of life and death. Life and death are only superficialphenomena and not essence, and they are only forms and not root. “Boundlessgrasses over the plain; Come and go with every season; Wildfire never quiteconsumes them ; They are tall once more in the spring wind” When the boatreaches the other shore, you should disembark and forget about the boat.(3). Consciousness of karma. “As a man sows and so he shall reap”, “Mills ofgod grind slowly but surely”.(4). Consciousness of space. There are 20 parallel worlds in the universe,36-dimensional space, and paradises and hells. Paradises are prepared for the
  • 5. 800 Values for New Era Human Beingperfect persons, and hells are set up for the defected ones. There are differentspaces of life for different life states.(5). Consciousness of predestined relationships. All are predestined. Arelationship with ghosts will make one go to the hell, a relationship withcelestial being will make one go to the fairyland. If the debts are not paid off,one cannot walk out of the plight, and if one does not have enough merits andvirtue, he cannot reach the fairyland.(6). The consciousness of mind and nature. Reality is the projection ofconsciousness, consciousness creates realities. Phenomena arise from mind andmind transcends all phenomena. “Mind is the most important of the ThreeRealms, and consciousness is the most important of all rules” The fragrance willattract butterflies to flowers, and a pure heart will be frequented by celestialbeings. A mind that does not abide anywhere is Tathagata. Nature is thecharacteristic of structure, and nature is Buddha.(7). The consciousness of magical arrays. In the universe there are 36 magicalarrays, which are the sources of games. They are full of fun. For example,power, money, fame, gain, carnal pleasure, and sentiment are magical arrays,from which one can not detach himself once plunged in them. Only if one hasacquired the supreme Authentic Wisdom, can he transport himself outside thesamsara world and the transmigration.(8). The consciousness of the real self. Everything has its source, and the sourceis the real self. Consciousness, structure and energy are the three constituentelements of the universe. Others are “like a dream, an illusion, a bubble and ashadow, like dew and lightning. Thus should you meditate upon them”. Buddhaand the Greatest Creator is the source of everything and the real self.Understanding the Greatest Creator and following Way of the Greatest Creator,
  • 6. 800 Values for New Era Human Beingyou will find any of the eighty four thousand Buddhist gates leading to a smoothpath. If you don’t understand the Greatest Creator and follow Way of theGreatest Creator, you will find any of the eighty four thousand Buddhist gatesleading to a cliff.185. How to achieve these consciousnesses? If you can cultivate a righteousbody and mind, true spirit and soul will abide within them and great capabilityand virtues will arise from them. If you don’t have the wish of Great Vehicle,you may find it difficult to understand the profundity of the universe anddifficult to achieve these consciousnesses. If you can stick to and keep the“universality” , have no self and selfish desire, revere the Greatest Creator,LIFE, and nature wholeheartedly, follow Way of the Greatest Creator, anddevote your heart and soul to the creation of a reality in which “the talented willbe put to good use, and the whole world will be one family”, in which “no onewould pocket anything found on the ground, and doors are not bolted at night”,and in which everything is in harmony, the weather are perfect, and everyone ishappy, joyful, free and blessed, then the light of the soul will become brighterand brighter and the consciousnesses will become clearer and clearer and theeight consciousnesses will finally be achieved.186. If conditions are not ripe, the programme cannot be initiated. One cannotachieve celestial being if the self-improving and self-refining has not achievedan ideal status.
