Past Events

What Our People Say

One Eyed Person (一目人)

One Eyed Person (一目人) was found in the Chinese Ancient Literature, Classic of Mountains and Rivers 山海經 which was written in between the Warring States Periods (475-221 BC) to The Han Dynasty of China (202 BC – 9AD, 25-220AD). In this ancient literature, it recorded that there was a One-Eyed Nation (一目國). People living in the One-Eyed Nation only had one eye in the middle of their forehead. People with one eye could only see things in one direction and disregarding of the other directions or perspectives. Because of that, fighting and conflicts were a way of life in this country. Wars happened all the time because they could not see other’s point of view.

If people want to live peacefully in their life, they need to have a wider perspective, to accept others who have different opinions so that they can see the beauty of the world from the other side.

Ego Bird (我所鳥)

Ego Bird (我所鳥), was derived from a Buddhist story, which recorded that the previous life of a greedy rich man, was as an Ego Bird. The Ego Bird lived in a tree with a lot of seeds. However, the Ego Bird did not allow anyone to take the seeds away. When someone wanted to take away the seeds, the Ego Bird yelled, ‘this is mine and this is mine’. It ended with the Ego Bird feeling very tired and died eventually without eating any seeds.

The Ego Bird has greedy and strong ego and does not like sharing. Finally, the Ego Bird did not receive any benefit from his greed. The opposite was true.

Peace Parrot (和平鸚鵡)

Peace Parrot (和平鸚鵡), is a colorful and beautiful parrot. Because it loves peace and has beautiful heart, it always lives with freedom and happiness. Beauty is within us all.

Serenity Bear (善思小熊)

Serenity Bear (善思小熊), is kind and lovely. It always smiles. Serenity Bear believes that the key to achieve serenity is ‘Love’ and to embrace ‘VOICE’ – Value, Optimism, Integrity, Connection and Empowerment. We create Serenity through balance in our lives.
