800 Values for New Era Human Being

800 Values for New Era Human being(Second Edition)
Deiform Buddha
Chapter 16:Soul garden
442. The symbol of a pure and perfect soul: grateful, praising, reverent,
faithful, honest, kind, diligent, unsophisticated, intelligent and vivid,
clean and tidy, innocent modest and gentle, open-minded, tolerant,
magnanimous, unselfish, positive and optimistic, enthusiastic and
unrestraint, humorous, and affable.
443. The dirt and dust that should be cleansed from the soul: jealousy,
anger, bitterness, suspicion, curse, comparison, reprehension, attack,
contention,

complaint,

passiveness,

decadence,

selfishness,

avid

possession, arrogance, unscrupulousness, indolence, sluttery, indifference,
and unruliness. The heaven will accept only those with a pure and perfect
soul. If your soul is contaminated with any of the above 20 defects, you
will be denied the entrance to heaven—the realm of the Greatest Creator.
444. The most severe crisis of mankind is the crisis of soul. As long as we
have solved man’s crisis of soul, we can solve all the crises faced by
mankind. The building of Soul garden is a matter of urgency for mankind.
Any other measures and ways are only trivial and cannot solve the crises
faced by mankind. Everyone should build their own garden of soul,
which is a miraculous panacea for mankind to avoid tribulations and
catastrophe.

445. Man is not born with sin. Sin is caused by the imperfect operating
mechanism of human society. The root of tribulation and afflictions of
human society for thousands of years does not lie in the sin but in the
imperfect operating mechanism of human society. A perfect operating
mechanism will make people free of sin, while an imperfect mechanism
of operation will breed sins of man.
446. The physiological diseases are mostly caused by the defects in spirit
and soul. The spirit embodies the energy feature of life, while soul
represents the structure feature of life.
447. Praise is the symbol of the richness of one’s soul. Praise of the
Greatest Creator, nature and other people is the symbol of a beautiful
soul.
448. Gratitude is the first element to sublime life. Repentance is the most
effective way to purify soul.
449. Gratitude is the headspring of happiness and the foundation for the
harmonious coexistence with the Greatest Creator, nature, and the broad
masses of mankind. With a feeling of gratitude and humility, you can be
molded into a capable being and can obtain “the supreme-enlightenment
mind”, and can accomplish your greatest wish. Without a feeling of
gratitude and humility, you will become a useless dead wood not suitable
for sculpture”.
450. If through self-improving and self-refining, one can achieve a body
and soul of integrity, he can have real spirit and great talent and great
virtue concentrated in himself. Without spirit, it may mean that we have
not achieved a body and soul of integrity. If we do not have great talent
and virtue, it also proves that we do not have a body and soul of integrity.

Good will be rewarded with good and evil will be punished with evils,
there is close association between one’s deeds and the consequent reward.
Reap as one has sown. The mill of the Greatest Creator grinds slowly but
surely.
452. Honesty is one of the symbols of the perfect soul. One had better be
frank and honest with each other if he wants to ensure that in his relations
with others there is no friction, jealousy, trepidation, vexation, and

800 Values for New Era Human Being

afflictions. Getting along with others in this way involves the least cost,
and can give birth to the most genuine, close and enduring friendship.
And the relationship formed on this basis incurs the least negative and
passive effect.
453. People whose souls have the same frequency with and resonate with
those of ours are all our kin relationship. All those who meet the
following eight conditions are our close relatives. 1. Revere the Greatest
Creator and follow the road of the Greatest Creator; 2. Revere life and
nature, love life and peace. 3. Share weal and woe, show care and
concern for us, and never oppress, exploit and bully us; 4. Speak gently,
and never reprobate us, never show resentment against us, never sneer us,
and never humiliate and retaliate against us; 5. Forgive our faults and
always meet us with smiles; 6. Never contend and quarrel with us, never
create a disturbance, never snatch from us, and always consider our
interest first; 7. Give us happiness, joyfulness,freedom and blessing; 8.
Get on well with us and never hurt us. It is time to redefine the kin
relationship based on blood relations. We need to establish the new kin
relationship, we should make all people have many kin relations on their
journey of life, and we shall make life more and more beautiful.
454. What keeps me alive is my spirit; what makes me dead is my mind.
When the mind is peaceful and tranquil the spirit shall abide within; when
the mind is astir the spirit will disappear.
455.“Everything is consumed in commotion and is brought into existence
in tranquility, and tranquility is the abode of spirit”. “Without peace of
mind, you cannot go very far”. “Tranquility gives birth to wisdom, while
commotion breeds fatuity”. What keeps me alive is my spirit, what makes
me dead is the death of my mind. When the mind is peaceful and tranquil

800 Values for New Era Human Being

the spirit shall abide within; when the mind is astir the spirit will
disappear.
456. What plants shall we grow in our garden of soul?
Answer: We shall sow and plant: sincerity, kindness, beauty, love, faith,
honesty, diligence, bravery, unselfishness, devotion, service, care,
tolerance, consideration, compassion, mercy, and other flowers and
plants.
What weeds and barnyard grass shall we eliminate from our garden of
soul?
Answer: jealousy, hostility, outrage, contention, complaint, comparison,
hatred, fear, anxiety, falsity, wickedness, ugliness, lie, hypocrisy, greed,
possession, forced occupation, desire to excel over others, exculpation,
and other weeds and barnyard grass.
Reap as one sows. You will see and enjoy whatever you have sown. This
is what the master of the earth requires us to do. Once we have built our
garden of soul, and once we have get well prepared, we will be the
selected seed to enter the era of Lifechanyuan and we will enter a
brand-new era no matter what may happen around the year 2013.
457. There is one energy is called the energy of soul, which mainly
comes from affection and love. Affection and love is itself a top-grade
energy. A person with affection and love has a soul full of energy. A
person without affection and love has a soul void of energy. As is always
observable, anyone rich in affection and love is always full of vigor and
vitality. They are optimistic, positive, lively, and intelligent. Even when
they are in adversity, they are always filled with hope and yearnings.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

However, a person void of affection and love is always tedious, passive,
stagnant, prim, devoid of vitality, vigor, and creation. Even if they are in
favorable circumstances, they wear a woebegone expression, they sigh in
despair, and cannot feel happiness and pleasure.
458. The substrate of art form is real nature. If we go deeper into
everything we can finally trace each of them to its origin and ultimately
find out its real nature. There is only one real nature in the universe. With
the exception of the Greatest Creator, anything else is merely miraculous
transformation and the artistic representation of the Greatest Creator.
459. The mechanism that maintains the order and harmony of art forms is
kindness. To be more specific, kindness means the reverence for the
Greatest Creator, LIFE, and nature. All behaviors that maintain the
Greatest Creator, order, LIFE and nature are kindness.
460. The harmonious proportion and symmetry of art form is beauty. The
beauty of everything is created by the Greatest Creator. Maintenance of
beauty is the sacred obligation of God and Buddha, the ideal and pursuit
of the sages and saints, and the wish of the populace.
461. Visualize your dream, and it will come true. When the image is
formed and informed to the Greatest Creator, all you need to do is to wait
patiently. Do not feel impatient and visualize another one. It takes a very
long time for some visualization to become a reality.
462. No matter how good a doctor may be and no matter how miraculous
medicine he has prescribed, he will be capable of nothing if a patient
refuses to take the medicine and does not admit that he is ill.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

463. The greatest love is the love for LIFE. The greatest man is one who
loves the LIFE of other people and the LIFE of the whole mankind and
the LIFE of the whole universe. Love cannot only purify the soul of other
people, but also perfect the structure of one’s own LIFE. The value and
significance of love is inestimable.
464. If you do not have the Greatest Creator in your mind, you do not
deserve to talk about love, because your talk of love will only be a smirch
and blasphemy of love.
465. Bravely love those who deserve your love and devote yourself heart
and soul to people pursuing sincerity, kindness, beauty, love, faith and
honesty. In this way you will reap bounty rewards. “The retribution will
be incredible”.
466. Mind is the most important of the Three Realms, and cognition is the
most important of all rules.
467. Form arises from the mind and reality is created by mind.
468. Diseases arise from the mind, and disaster is be gotten by the mind.
469. There are dust and dirt in our souls. If the souls are purified, celestial
beings will abide in our souls. If we are not willing to have them cleaned,
demons and goblins will take possession of them.
470. If the mind is not empty, everything will be empty; if you are bent
on possession, you may end in having nothing at all.
471. We can only find our bosom friends if we have opened all our souls;
we can only find our bosoms if we completely expose ourselves; we can
only find our bosom friends if we devote ourselves heart and soul.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

472. In the state of jubilation and joyance, people have the best psychosis,
the agilest thinking, and the most beautiful souls.
473. The highest level of communication in the universe is not the
communication in language but the communication in soul, which can
also be called communication in consciousness or communication in soul.
The most perfect communication in soul is the communication of love in
soul.
474. The power of soul can transcend over time and space, and possesses
the holy power of transforming nature and transforming the corruptible
into the mysterious life.
475. If mind revolves around the form, you will be destined to enter the
mundane world; if you are in pursuit of forms every day, you will be a
laity. If your mind does not follow the revolution of forms, you are a sage.
Just let forms change at their will, my mind will stick to the only Way. If
you can make form revolve around your mind, you will be an immortal.
If you can create form with mind, you will be a celestial being. If your
soul transcends over all forms, you will have an unperturbed mind. If
dharma-form arises in your mind, it will be a shackle; if your mind is free
of dharma-form, it will be agile. If non-dharma-form exists in your mind,
arrogance will grow in your mind and lead you to the path of evils and
demons. When your mind is holographic, there will be no
contradictions.
476. The broader the mind is, the more expansive the universe will be;
the more profound the thinking is, the more extensive the space of LIFE
will become.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

477. Everything in Lifechanyuan is beautiful—beautiful soul, beautiful
clothes, beautiful language, and beautiful looks. Even a person with
extremely ugly look can unfold his most beautiful aspects to other people
so that he can show his respect for them. You cannot become a celestial
being if you don’t love beauty, don’t know what beauty is, and cannot or
is not willing to exhibit your most beautiful aspect before your spectators.
478. The good operating mechanism of society shall need people with
beautiful souls to engage in its construction. If your soul is not beautiful,
the good operating mechanism of society can never be built. Therefore,
the building of soul is of prime importance. And beautiful souls alone are
not enough, we should build good operating mechanism of society with
beautiful souls. Otherwise it will be difficult for beautiful souls to last for
long. This is comparable to the love between man and woman. Initially
everything is as wonderful as both parties have expected, but if both
parties do not build a mechanism to maintain the continuous operation of
their original goal and intention, very soon contradictions will arise,
which will either cause both parties to fall apart or plunge them in a life
of misery.
479. It is impossible to build the beautiful homestead in the wilderness of
soul and in the desert of culture. Even if it is momentarily established,
such homestead cannot stand the battering of rainstorms. Different
cultures give rise to different human groups, and different human groups
give birth to different social systems.
480. Do you want to have a rough time? That’s easy. You will certainly
have a lot of hardships to endure if you insist on splitting hairs and do not
open your soul, and if you always think that you are correct. Do you want
to be pleased and happy? No problem. You will enjoy boundless pleasure

800 Values for New Era Human Being

and happiness if you open your soul and think in unconventional way and
can realize that you are wrong.
481. The pursuit of pleasure and happiness in reality begins with the
restoration of spiritual perception and the cleansing of soul. Only if the
frequency of our souls are the same as that of the Greatest Creator and
resonates with it, can we enjoy infinite pleasure and happiness. Even the
discomfort and diseases in our flesh are caused by the dirt in our souls.
The diseases will disappear when the souls are cleansed.
482. Any disease, be it heart trouble, arthritis, cancer, or AIDS, stems
from the problem in the structure of life form. The root does not lie in the
superficial form but in the essence. The structures of our bodies will
change with the change of our soul. To have a healthy body, we should
first have a healthy and sound soul.
483. The eating of poisonous food will not affect one’s soul, instead it
will only harm the physical health of the eater. Therefore, neither
smokers, nor meat eaters, nor wine drinkers will go to hell. Whether one
goes to hell or heaven has nothing with cigarettes, wine and meat but is
directly related to the nonmaterial structure of life.
484. The best recipe for keeping a beautiful soul is following teachings of
Jesus Christ and Sakyamuni. The next approach is to conduct
self-improving and self-refining in Lifechanyuan.
485. Perfection is created by perfection, and defects are caused by defects.
A beautiful soul can perceive beauty, and an ugly soul can perceive only
ugliness.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

486. There is no jealousy in the paradise. Equally there exists no
complaint in Thousand-year World, Ten-thousand-year World, and
Celestial Islands Continent in the land of heaven. All those who yearn for
the beautiful future and wish to live in heaven should not harbor jealousy
and complaint. If people engaged in self-improving and self-refining do
not get rid of jealousy and complaint, they cannot enter the heaven.
487. Jealousy reflects an ugly soul. Jealousy arises from comparison. The
comparison with others in your category breeds jealousy. Jealousy
indicates the defects of the nonmaterial structure of life. Jealousy is a
disease of soul, which represents the ugliness of human nature. Jealousy
will cause harm not only to oneself, but also to one’s kindred, community,
and society. Jealousy stands for narrow-mindedness and lack of
self-confidence. Jealousy marks the degeneration of man into wickedness.
A jealous person can never go to heaven.
488. To eliminate jealousy, one must engage in self-improving and
self-refining. Since jealousy arises from the community life, it is
necessary to carry out self-improving and self-refining in the community
life. One can never dispel jealousy if he conducts self-improving and
self-refining behind the closed door.
489. The most expansive ocean can accommodate the greatest number of
rivers. The most open soul is most likely to give birth to the greatest
thought. People who are not particular about their food are most stout.
People who obtain the most love are those who devote their love
unselfishly to as many people as they can.
490. Conscience is the touchstone to verify whether one has a perfect soul.
It is also a watershed to demonstrate the achievement of one’s

800 Values for New Era Human Being

self-cultivation and self-refining. More importantly it is the best
credential by which to judge whether a person can enter the land of
heaven. Perfect conscience is the symbol of a person’s purity of soul.
Have a good conscience, and you will be rewarded with endless fortune
and good luck. However, a bad conscience can only invites infinite
disasters.
491. Admiration leads to perfection, while fastidiousness brings about
deformity. Only people with a rich soul are capable of praising and
admiring others. People destitute in soul never admire and praises others.
A person with a perfect self often admires and praises others, while a
person with an ugly self often is fault-finding and always debases others.
492. Be fault-finding at other’s blemishes and the blemish will be
magnified, however if you admire other’s virtue, the virtue will be
magnified. To ensure the pleasure and happiness of others, Chanyuan
advocates that we turn a blind eye to the blemishes of other people and
eulogize their strong points. In this way, with time people will become
more kind-hearted, will have beautiful soul, will be grateful, reasonable
and understanding.
493. You can shower words of praise. Good weather is favorable for the
growth of crops, and fine words are beneficial to the development of
friendship.
494. Discover and think about more of others’ advantages and strengths,
pay less attention to their weaknesses and shortcomings. Think more
about your own weaknesses and shortcomings and do not flaunt your own
advantages and strengths.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

495. Follow sincerity, kindness, and beauty closely and shun falsity,
wickedness, and ugliness. Have a pious heart in achieving Buddhahood,
and run towards Celestial Islands Continent!
496. We should first conquer and perfect ourselves. On the earth, few are
immaculate. Everyone has his defects. A person with defects is not
entitled to indoctrinate others. Let’s first think about ourselves and have
an introspection if we feel angry about other people’s shortcomings and
defects, if we attempt to educate and guide others, if we are not pleased
with everything we have seen, and if we reprehend and complain against
others.
497. A mind bent on comparison is a mind bent on wickedness. Once
one’s mind begins comparison, the peace of mind will be disturbed. The
result will be making trouble out of nothing. And trouble may even arise
from within. A mind bent on comparison represents the insufficient
self-confidence and connotations, the lack of understanding of common
sense, the confused thinking, and the lack of understanding of the value
and significance of life.
498. All tragedies are caused by the imperfect self. What’s worse, we are
reluctant to face the reality and recognize our defects. We always focus
our complaint and reprehension on others. A life of this kind is too
hypocritical, too illusive, too vainglorious, and too unfortunate. Your
suffering may never end if you escape from yourself and are afraid of
facing yourself truthfully. One can get away from the abyss of misery and
reach the land of heaven only by facing reality.
499. Wrath represents barbarism, ignorance, and the lack of civilization
and good upbringing.

800 Values for New Era Human Being

500. Hatred is the poison to oneself and others.
501. Suspicion is the symbol of intolerance and abnormal mentality.
502. Complaint is a poisonous arrow shot at others. Do not harbor
complaint against others. Everyone follows his own track of life and
LIFE, everyone has his debts to pay, everyone has his personality and
specialty, and everyone has his own mission and responsibility. Do not
complain no matter how well or how badly others have done something,
because complaint is a poisoned arrow.
