The Guardianship of the Yellow

"At the beginning of this cycle of time, long ago, the Great Spirit came down and He made an appearance and He gathered the peoples of this earth together and He said to the human beings, 'I'm going to send you to four directions and over time I'm going to change you to four colors, but I'm going to give you some teachings and you will call these the Original Teachings and when you come back together with each other you will share these so that you can live and have peace on earth, and a great civilization will come about.' And he said 'During the cycle of time I'm going to give each of you two stone tablets. When I give you those stone tablets, don't cast those upon the ground. If any of the brothers and sisters of the four directions and the four colors cast their tablets on the ground, not only, will human beings have a hard time, but almost the earth itself will die.'  -- Lee Brown, Baha'i- Cherokee, Baha'i Continental Indigenous Council, Fairbanks, Alaska, 1986

To the South He gave the Yellow Race of people the Guardianship of the wind (Spirit). They were to learn about the sky and breathing, and how to take that within ourselves for spiritual advancement.  They were to share that with us at this time.

And so he gave each of us a responsibility and we call that the Guardianship.

The Color Yellow

Yellow represents earth, which also represents farming which then in turn represents life. In fact China has a word when literally translated means yellow earth (黄土)which symbolises life.  Yellow also represents the rising sun and the newness each day, including awareness of the Spirit and one's attitudes and insights, while ever-increasing understanding of one's self and the world.

During the Qin Dynasty the colour yellow represented the royal family, and you will see many paintings from the Qing Dynasty of royals wearing yellow clothes. In fact, during the Qing Dynasty only the royal family and ones close to the emperor could wear the colour yellow, and even then they could only wear shades of yellow and not pure yellow as this was only the emperor’s right. Anyone who ignored these rules of status could even face the death penalty.

Around 2697 BC an emperor assumed the name as the Yellow Emperor (皇帝) and during this time people also worshiped the colour yellow.

The Yellow Emperor

According to tradition Huang-Di, or the Yellow Emperor, began ruling in 2697 B.C. His long reign was said to be a golden age, and he was honored as a benevolent and wise ruler.  Before he came to the throne, order and government were unknown in the world. He introduced systems of government and law to humankind, and he also invented music and the arts. The sage-king leaders of China's pre-dynastic era were known as the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors. Among the Five Emperors, it is Huangdi - the "Yellow Emperor" - who is honored as the mythical father of Chinese Medicine. The Yellow Emperor is believed to have been the leader of the alliance of all tribes in Chinese early society. According to legend, he invented many of China's notable accomplishments such as knowledge of the raising of silkworms, the construction of boats and carts, a system of writing, and the medical arts. For this reason he has long received the love and commemoration of the people.


Korea

Chun Bu Kyung

The Chun Bu Kyung is one of the oldest known scriptures of the Korean people. This ancient Korean spiritual text is said to have been created by a sage who realized his own enlightenment through his Shinsundo training regimen, through which he gained insight into the realities of life and death and the operational flow of the universe. Some estimate this occurred around 9,000 years ago in the ancient community of ‘Han Kuk,’ and was orally handed down until around 4,000 BC, when it was first put into writing in ‘Nocdoomun’ characters, which resemble a pattern of deer hoof prints. The contemporary version was translated into the current Chinese letters by Chiwon Choi, a reknown scholar from the Silla dynasty (57 BC – 935 AD) during the Three Kingdoms period of Korea.

Chun Bu Kyung an ancient Korean Spiritual Text

These teachings are what were recorded in the Chun Bu Kyung, which pre-dates Buddhism, Confucianism, and other ideologies now common in Korean culture. In fact, these teachings were later emphasized in the teachings of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism when they were introduced to Korea.

Later, during the Dangun Chosun dynasty (1392 – 1910 AD), Shinji Hyeun-deuk interpreted the Chun Bu Kyung in a way that helped more people understand the essentials of the philosophy, so that they could be spiritually awakened and live in complete harmony. This interpretation exists as the Samil Shingo, which explains the principles of the Chun Bu Kyung in simple terms of 366 letters, and provides details about Shinsundo training methods for development of body, mind, spirit, and character. The Dangun Chosun dynasty used the Chun Bu Kyung philosophy as the philosophical and political foundation of the kingdom. They fully incorporated its principles into every aspect of management and daily life.

One interpretation of this philosophy suggests that mankind’s highest purpose is to bridge the earthly and heavenly realms. Although we are born into a physical body with many attributes similar to those of other living creatures on the planet, we have a special mission to develop our divine aspect and to reconnect to the earthly and heavenly realms. By realizing our innate divine potential, we become one with the essence of the universe and one with creativity, peace, and love. In doing so, we reach the highest level of awareness and consciously return to the Source of all life. This process is delineated in the letters of the Chun Bu Kyung.

The Chun Bu Kyung can be interpreted as an expression of mathematics, philosophy, and even energy studies. Each letter contains its own distinct literal or numerical meaning when read, and distinct energy or musical characteristics when sounded. It combines number/ratio and sound/energy characteristics of the individual components into a holistic effect, which is an actual representation of the principle of harmonious order.

Reverend Sun Myung Moon
Unification

Seeds of change planted by Rev. Sun Myung Moon decades ago are coming to fruition on the Korean peninsula despite occasional setbacks. South Korea recently accepted North Korea’s suggestion for new negotiations on humanitarian issues. Tensions on the peninsula are easing after the North aggressively bombed an island in the South and destroyed a Southern warship with a missile, both in 2010.

Rev. Moon and his wife, Hak Ja Han Moon: King and Queen of PEACE!

"Building a world of peace on the Korean peninsula is not as difficult as we may think. When South Korea lives fully for the sake of North Korea, North Korea will not try to fight the South, and peace will come naturally to the peninsula. The power that can move a rebellious child is not the fist or brute power. It is the power of love.  .  ." Rev. Sun Myung Moon, Autobiography As A Peace Loving Global Citizen.

Although Rev. Moon was a strong anti-communist, he moved the North to consider anew many things which it previously rejected. Seeds of this 1991 visit still reverberate across the peninsula and around the world. Former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, before his death in 2010, stated that Rev. Moon has emerged as a great peacemaker and unifier on the world stage.

Reverend Moon's Work for the Peaceful End of Communism

"Of all the impossible events that have occurred in the Soviet Union in the last five years, probably none has been as unlikely as the happy meeting in recent days between Mikhail Gorbachev and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon. The Moscow News called Mr. Moon 'the most brilliant anti-communist and the No. 1 enemy of the state'–and then added, please, that it was 'time to reconcile." -- Georgie Anne Geyer

Kim Jong Il Announces Plan to Invite Rev. Moon to Return

Visiting North Korea in 1991, Rev. Moon boldly declared the North should allow families divided between North and South to be reunited, that tourism should be welcomed in the North, and industrial development be allowed there. President Kim Il Sung, in a face-to-face dialogue, agreed to all three of these proposals, as well as the denuclearization of the peninsula.

Rev. Moon plays a pivotal role with Kim Jon ll in Korea's Re-Unification of the North and South?

Former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, inspired by Rev. Moon’s comments on his role in the peaceful transition from communism, promised in 1994 that he would devote the rest of his life to projects that are for the sake of peace.

North Korea, grateful for the role Rev. Moon is playing, sent him 3 dozen roses on his recent 91 birthday, wishing him a healthy life for 120 years.

Currently observers note that the new, North South negotiation topics will center on reunification of families divided between North and South and joint industrial and tourism projects. The International Committee of the Red Cross will be relied upon to broker efforts to reunite the divided families. It will also oversee tourism at Mount Kumgang and an industrial project in Kaesong. Although the sites are in North Korea, management will be by the South, while staffed by the North. All these ideas were introduced by talks between Kim Il Sung and Rev. Moon several decades ago.

Marcus Noland, co-author of the new book "Witness to Transformation" now believes dissent is increasing in North Korea. The population is skeptical of their leaders as access to vital information improves due to marketplace reforms and foreign media broadening their worldview. North Koreans defectors were surveyed in the South and it was found that virtually none believed that Kim Jong-Il's regime was improving, while a vast majority backed Korea's reunification on the terms of the US-allied South.

"Today our world needs drastic change in order to become God-centered. I came to call for that change. The Divine Principle will bring about a revolution of man. The power of this truth is touching millions of human lives and igniting hundreds of thousands of them. It will bring about the true, lasting unification of the family of man and the world." -- Rev. Sun Myung Moon


Tibet

"The stone tablets of the yellow race of people are kept by the Tibetans, in Tibet. If you went straight through the Hopi Reservation to the other side of the world, you would come out in Tibet. The Tibetan word for 'sun' is the Hopi word for 'moon' and the Hopi word for 'sun' is the Tibetan word for 'moon' ".  -- Lee Brown, Baha'i- Cherokee, Baha'i Continental Indigenous Council, Fairbanks, Alaska, 1986

Padmasambhava

Padmasambhava, The Lotus Born, is said to have transmitted Tantric Buddhism to Bhutan and Tibet in the 8th century.  In those lands he is better known as Guru Rinpoche ("Precious Master").

Padmasambhava had five major female tantric companions, the so-called 'Five Wisdom Dakinis' or 'Five Consorts. They are described as the five women "who had access to the master's heart", and practiced secret sexual tantric rites which are considered to have exorcised the previous demons of Tibet and converted them into protectors of the country.

One of Padmasambhava's many prophecies states:

"When the iron eagle flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered over the earth, and the Dharma will go to the land of the red man." -- Padmasambhava

"Morality, compassion, decency, and wisdom are the building blocks of all civilizations.  These qualities must be cultivated in childhood and sustained through systematic moral education in a supportive social environment so that a more humane world may emerge.  We cannot wait for the next generation to make this change; we ourselves must attempt a renewal of basic human values.  Hope lies in future generations, but not unless we institute major change on a worldwide scale in our educational systems, now we need a revolution in commitment to universal values."  --His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Dali Lama on Economics

"Of all the modern economic theories, the economic system of Marxism is founded on moral principles, while capitalism is concerned only with gain and profitability. Marxism is concerned with the distribution of wealth on an equal basis and the equitable utilisation of the means of production. It is also concerned with the fate of the working classes—that is, the majority—as well as with the fate of those who are underprivileged and in need, and Marxism cares about the victims of minority-imposed exploitation. For those reasons the system appeals to me, and it seems fair. I just recently read an article in a paper where His Holiness the Pope Benedict XVI also pointed out some positive aspects of Marxism (though disapproving of it on the whole).
As for the failure of the Marxist regimes, first of all I do not consider the former USSR, or China, or even Vietnam, to have been true Marxist regimes, for they were far more concerned with their narrow national interests than with the Workers' International; this is why there were conflicts, for example, between China and the USSR, or between China and Vietnam. If those three regimes had truly been based upon Marxist principles, those conflicts would never have occurred.
I think the major flaw of the Marxist regimes is that they have placed too much emphasis on the need to destroy the ruling class, on class struggle, and this causes them to encourage hatred and to neglect compassion. Although their initial aim might have been to serve the cause of the majority, when they try to implement it all their energy is deflected into destructive activities. Once the revolution is over and the ruling class is destroyed, there is not much left to offer the people; at this point the entire country is impoverished and unfortunately it is almost as if the initial aim were to become poor. I think that this is due to the lack of human solidarity and compassion. The principal disadvantage of such a regime is the insistence placed on hatred to the detriment of compassion.
The failure of the regime in the former Soviet Union was, for me, not the failure of Marxism but the failure of totalitarianism. For this reason I still think of myself as half-Marxist, half-Buddhist."  -- His Holiness the Dali Lama

On the Environment

"On the global level, I think the ecology problem is very serious. I hear about some states taking it very seriously. That's wonderful! So this blue planet is our only home, if something goes wrong at the present generation, then the future generations really face a lot of problems, and those problems will be beyond human control; so that's very serious. Ecology should be part of our daily life."  -- His Holiness the Dali Lama

Tibetan Buddhism on Death

"Death in the twentieth century is at once imminent and invisible. Lulled by the false comforts of medical and technological advancement, western culture dreams that progress will domesticate once and for all death's senseless malignancy. Science has offered many solutions to life's questions, but has yet to explain, for example, the spark of new life, the mysterious workings of consciousness, or a person's fate after death. As this exhibit has hopefully demonstrated, the Tibetans possess a vibrant wealth of literature dealing with the nature of consciousness and the dying experience. For centuries Tibet has engaged in the systematic study and analysis of the human death process as a cautious and practical preparation for this inevitable event. In the past several decades, many spiritually inquisitive westerners from both Europe and the United States have turned to the wisdom of Tibet's mature religious understanding for answers to those questions that science and medicine have failed to address. In the end, there is not a single human being who is not going to die, sooner or later. It is therefore impractical, according to some opinions, not to examine the issue with the greatest concern and not to benefit from the trials and errors of ancient tradition. It is this view that has motivated many of the western studies on the Tibetan Books of the Dead, and it is in these studies that Tibet's sophisticated methods of dealing with death and dying are appropriately recognized as a skillful, compassionate, and humane response to life's certain end."   -- Evans-Wentz

Politics

In 1950 following the Chinese Civil War, the People's Republic of China forcably invaded Tibet and negotiated the Seventeen Point Agreement with the newly crowned 14th Dalai Lama's government, affirming the People's Republic of China's sovereignty but granting the area autonomy. After the Dalai Lama's government fled to Dharamsala, India during the 1959 Tibetan Rebellion, it established a rival government-in-exile. Afterwards, the Central People's Government in Beijing renounced the agreement and began implementation of social and political reforms.  During the "Great Leap Forward" between two hundred thousand and 1 million Tibetans died,  and approximately 6,000 monasteries were destroyed across Tibet.

The Panchen Lama is the highest ranking Lama after the Dalai Lama in the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism (the sect which controlled western Tibet from the 16th century until the forceful imposition of Chinese rule in 1951).

The Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, named the 11th incarnation of the Panchen Lama, Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, on May 14, 1995. Shortly after being named he dissapeared from public view, aged six. Chinese authorities stated that Gedhun had been taken into protective custody and is now safe, but there is no information regarding from what, or from whom, he must be protected, where he is being held, or under what conditions.

The People's Republic of China now asserts that it has recognized a Chinese national, Qoigyijabu Gyancain Norbu, as the true 11th Panchen Lama.  Tibetan exiles have demanded Gedhun Choekyi Nyima's immediate release from Chinese captivity.

The Panchen Lama is Missing...

“Tibetans have sent memorandums to the Chinese government and the UN asking for the release of Gedun Chokyi Nyima, who has been recognised by the Dalai Lama as the 11th Panchen Lama. Thousands of Tibetans here and in other parts of India marked Friday with prayer meetings and candle light vigils celebrating the Panchen Lama’s birthday.
We must firmly hold on to our beliefs, for the day when the Panchen Lama will return to his seat at Tashi Lhunpo monastery. The Panchen Lama was last seen in May 1995, barely days after the Dalai Lama proclaimed him as the Panchen Lama. We believe he is under house arrest along with his family at a place close to Beijing.
Despite repeated appeals of visiting foreign delegations, no international agency or human rights organisation has been given permission to meet him to verify his well being. The Chinese foreign ministry said last year that the Panchen Lama was ‘leading a normal life and free life and does not want to be disturbed’.” -- Samdhong Rinpoche, prime minister, Tibetan government-in-exile

Ancestral DNA

Genetic data shows us that the biochemical systems of Asian and European populations, appear to be more similar to each other, than they are to African populations. thus, Asians (Mongols) and Europeans (Caucasians) may have shared a common ancestry with each other, some 40,000 years ago and a common ancestry with African populations before that. The Out of Africa (OOA) migrations, which took Africans into Asia, occurred at about 50,000 B.C. The modern Mongol shows great affiliation with San Africans in body type and facial features, thus the presumed genesis below.

History and Religion

“The Chinese have ... a profound regard for history. But history, for them was not simply a scientific study. It had the features of a cult, akin to ancestor worship, with the ritual object of presenting the past, favorably emended and touched up, as a model for current political action. It had to conform also to the mystical view of China as the Centre of the World, the Universal Empire in which every other country had a natural urge to become a part … The Communists … were the first Chinese to have the power to convert their atavistic theories into fact”  -- Richardson quoted by Craig, 1997, p. 146
“This tradition of religious rebellion did not disappear under communism. Rather, it continued under an ideological guise. Mao Zedong's utopian vision that drove both the Cultural Revolution and the suppression of intellectuals in Tiananmen Square bears a striking resemblance with the populist Buddhist policies of Emperor Zhu Yuanthang, founder of the Ming Dynasty and himself a Lotus Sect Buddhist priest.” -- Yoichi Clark Shimatsu

Peng

In the Chinese classic Chuangtze, there is a legend like this: Once upon a time, a gigantic fish named Kun lived in the northern sea. No one knew how large it actually was. This fish could change itself into the enormous bird called Peng (roc), measuring thousands of kilometers in length. When the bird was spreading its wings, it looked like huge clouds in the sky. It could, in one stretch, fly from the northern sea to the southern sea on the other side of the globe and soaring up to 90000 li (45000 kilometers) in the heaven. The bird can surely fly over a long distance without stop. Now people use this idiom to with others have a long career or a bright future.

Politics

Like the Tibetans in exile, the Chinese know that power lies in the hands of the elites. These will decide which direction future developments take. It is doubtful whether the issue of national sovereignty will play any role at all among the Tibetan clergy should they be permitted to advance into China with the toleration and support of the state. Since the murder of King Langdarma, Tibetan history teaches us, the interests of monastic priests and not those of the people are preeminent in political decisions. This was likewise true in reverse for the Chinese Emperor. The Chinese ruling elite will in the future also decide according to power-political criteria which religious path they will pursue:

Beijing clearly looks to a Buddhist revival to fill the spiritual void in the Asian heartland so long as it does not challenge the nominally secular authorities. Such a revival could provide the major impetus into the Pacific century. Like all utopias, it could also be fraught with disaster”  -- Shimatsu, HPI 009

Since 1979, China has pursued a policy of reform and opening to the outside world, a policy which was initiated by Deng Xiaoping. While conditions in Tibet are just as terrible as ever, Beijing's central Government would have the world believe that the errors of the "cultural revolution" and the earlier "Leftist" deviations have been rectified, and that the focus has been shifted to modernization.  Major efforts have been made to re-adjust the economic structure and reform the economic and political systems.  Unfortunately human rights have not been "modernized" to the same degreee, and economic disparity within both Tibet and mainland China herself is worse off each year.
