The Reviving 5,000 Years of Civilization Society is a non-for profit organization established in Vancouver in 2014 by a group of people who treasure the value of traditional Chinese culture and believe that these values are highly important in today’s world.
There have been many great ancient civilizations throughout the ages. Many of these civilizations have collapsed or dissolved over the course of time. Chinese culture is the only culture in the world to have a continuous recorded history of 5,000 years.
Since ancient times, China has been known as “The Land of Divine”, a land where the divine and mortal once coexisted. It refers to the belief that, the divine transmitted a rich and abundant culture to the Chinese people through various dynasties. Thus Chinese culture is known as “Divinely Inspired” with respect to the unity and the harmony of Universe and mankind.
Taoist thought, considered a wellspring of Chinese culture, is as old as Chinese civilization itself – 5,000 years. Throughout China’s history, Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism were three main schools of teachings. Chinese people have generated a rich and profound system of values and culture based on these teachings. Chinese culture, at its core, is a tradition of moral self-discipline and veneration for the divine. This culture has left behind countless literary classics, historical documents, cultural relics and national records reflecting its immense scope – a treasure the entire world can share.
