The International Big Family of Lifechanyuan---the Thai Branch
The Thai Branch of the Lifechanyuan International Family is located in a northeastern suburb of Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, the second largest city in Thailand. It occupies 6.6 acres of land including an undeveloped hill with plenty of banana trees and a small lake. It was formerly called, “Mindful Garden”. Its owner, Pinan is a sincere cultivator of the spirit and an organic farmer. With Pinan’s permission and support, we began building “Mindful Garden” into our Thai Branch in March of 2019.
We consistently adhere the production and life mode of the New Oasis for Life in the Thai Branch of Lifechanyuan International Big Family, which is the model of new era and new home for mankind. We practice the values of Lifechanyuan through daily production and life, making a model for mankind to build a harmonious earth family.
We implement holographic management - no management is the best management, and without administrative compulsions. Walking on the way of the Greatest Creator, we are a harmonious family. We implement non-ownership, and all resources are shared. Everyone works together, creating, dedicating, and serves each other. We study Lifechanyuan Values, and perfect our soul garden, so we love all LIFES. Food, clothing, shelter, transportation, birth, aging, sickness, and death are collective responsibilities of the community. We have colorful entertainment activities and play funny games at regular intervals.
When we first arrived, there were only a few small sheds and a simple kitchen, but as our members arrived and engaged in building, we pulled down the old sheds, one at a time, and replaced them with a new house. We built a large dining room, three comfortable bedrooms with nature-oriented styles, a bathroom, laundry room, and two sinks which were made of mostly wood and bamboo.
We have cultivated a large area and have planted a variety of fruit trees and vegetable vines on it. Banana, mango, and avocado trees are growing in the woods on the hillside. We also have jackfruit, pineapple, papaya, mulberry, dragon fruit, mangosteen, litchi, and rambutan, and the latter three are growing seedlings now.
The courtyard is full of flowers, including Gesangs, jasmines, gardenias, flame lilies, garden balsam, Landmine flowers, marigolds, lotuses, cockscombs, and several others.
We have paved a small pathway with cement and bricks which is now surrounded by several kinds of flowers. Each day we pass from flowers to flowers, taking in the beautiful views.
With Pinan’s help and guidance in February 2020, we received our first group of ten visitors who volunteered from Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK in Europe, Israel, Brazil, and the US. They worked with us in the field, and studied our “800 Values for New Era Human Beings” and our new mode of production and life of the New Oasis of Life. They shared five happy and fulfilling days working and living with us.
Currently, five Chanyuan celestials live in the Thai Branch. We believe that more and more people whose values resonate with ours will join us here to experience the beauty and happiness of the Lifechanyuan Era and that the Thai branch will become more and more beautiful with Chanyuan celestials building it up diligently.
