Lifechanyuan doesn't Celebrate any One's birthday
To celebrate birthday for babies or the aged is a kind of tender feeling and a cultural enjoyment in the Mortal world. So Lifechanyuan does not oppose people to celebrate birthday.
However, when the youth and middle age celebrate their birthday in an extravagant way, this conduct does not embody the tender feeling or enjoyment, but philistine and burdensome.
People in the official circles celebrating their birthdays are a kind of invisible corruption.
Businessmen celebrating their birthday are a kind of flaunting and obsession.
Lifechanyuan tries to make the human life simple and plain, to simplify the five cardinal virtues-humanity, justice, propriety, wisdom and credit, to deepen the morality.
As a result, we are not willing to make a fuss about birthday to waste our energy, time and material resources just for momentary vanity. If we want to celebrate birthday, we should celebrate the birth of Heaven, the Thousand-year World, the ten-thousand-year world, Elysium world and Celestial Islands Continent.
What we need are not unnecessary and over elaborate formalities, just simplicities!
