The 2nd branch of Thailand：
Recently, our collective work is to plant a kind of grass along the river. This grass not only adds greenness and beauty to the yard, but also plays a role in preventing soil erosion.
Without any pressure, labor is a kind of enjoyment. Now and then catching some glimpse of the blue sky and white clouds, as well as the faraway mountains and wide green lawn, feel deeply fascinated by the ordinary and beauty of nature. I remember when reading Faust in a German novel before, and at this moment I can understood Faust’s mentality of sighing “Life is so beautiful” when he worked in the fields. Blessed are people who can feel beauty and happiness in their work.
In addition to working in the yard, we were also invited by the master monk to participate in a festival of the temple. On that day the master monk let us follow wherever he went, and take photos with the guests together with him. Everyone said that the five of us Chinese are the most trusted and favorite children of the master monk. I think hardworking and selfless people will be welcome wherever they go.
In the Buddha hall he introduced us to the Thai people who came to worship, and praised us for our hard work and ability. We have been living here for almost a year, and have become more and more aware of the local Thai culture, and more and more Thai people also know about us and our life style. I hope that in the near future, we can attract the Chanyuan celestials of Thailand to live with us. And of course, kind people from other countries are also welcome. We are an international family that welcomes resonated people all the time. As long as we resonate with each other, we are true families.
