The Great Chancellor Episode 1
Compiled from the Inner Dreams Kindergarten

Merit making process of a legendary person, the Great Chancellor

For tonight, our case study will be a continuance story from the short news of Father Khun Prayuth Yunsaman, who is residing in the heaven realm. His story has been on air before. I hope the Inner Dreams Kindergarten students will be able to remember and recall his story. In the previous case on air, a true story was told about the Upasika in the inner area and her head monk teacher in the last Buddha Aeon.

The true story of the merit-making process of the Upasika in the inner area and her head monk teacher in the last Buddha Aeon.

Case: Yunsaman –  that have already been on air before.
There was a time in the past that her head monk teacher was able to fulfill his dreams. One of his dreams was to be selected as a soldier and serve as a chamberlain of the king who later became ordained. The person who served his duty in selecting the chamberlain of the king in the last Buddha Aeon is the chancellor. This chancellor is a very important person in the previous Buddha Aeon.

Her head monk teacher (in the previous life) was selected as a chamberlain

The reason that the chancellor was a very important person was because he was very knowledgeable and skilled. He was good at theories and real practices. Even Zhuge Liang is second to him. Moreover, the chancellor had a wide vision, which was more supreme than a normal person. He was able to see through anything, and his decisions were never wrong. In addition to the fact that the chancellor was a very talented and skilled person, he also was very respectful toward the king who became ordained later. The chancellor devoted his life and heart into serving the King who became ordained later.

Before the chancellor would select someone to serve his highly respected King closely, the chancellor would have selected the soldiers by himself. When the time came for the chancellor to select the chamberlain, he would carefully select again and again. This was because the chancellor would like to select the best chamberlain who he thought would have all the finest qualities to serve the King. The selected chamberlain would have to be the sharpest and the brightest to be able to serve the king.

The Great Chancellor will select the chamberlain soldier to closely serve the king.

Therefore any individual that could choose some “champ” to work and serve the king closely would also consider be considered as legendary. The chancellor, who is known to be legendary, was also known to be “Super Champ” or “Champ of Champ.” In all the previous cases, we have also listened and studied about many individuals who are considered to be champ as well. However now it is time for us to study about the merit-making process of a legendary person, also known as Super Champ or Champ of Champ, which cannot be anyone else but the Great Chancellor. This Great Chancellor resided in the land of the King who became ordained later.

The Great Chancellor
The story began a long time ago, in the previous Buddha Aeon, which was in the time period when the 3rd Lord Buddha has already entered into nirvana. However, the 3rd Lord Buddha’s teachings still remained. Moreover, Buddhism was the main religion in the world at that time. Buddhism was the religion that most of the world citizens believed in. However, different types of other religions or sects still existed in the land region that was far away from the center of Buddhism teachings.

Buddhism was the World’s main teachings of that era

For the social life of the human beings in that time period, or the previous Buddha Aeon, many citizens conducted their living based upon agricultural and farming. They lived their lives according to nature without destroying it. Moreover, in the last Buddha Aeon, they lacked the modern technology as seen as today’s world.

Moreover, Buddhism flourished and was wide-spread in the social life of the previous era. Most villages have Buddhist temples as the center of their village. Moreover, these villagers lived harmoniously with each other and helped each other as if they were siblings.  The social life in that era was very peaceful. For journey travelling, most villagers used carriages pulled by horses.

For the climate during that era, the atmosphere was more pure than today’s. This was because they were no pollution from vehicles that we have been experiencing in today’s world.
Moreover, the rain also fell in the right season. The climate was good and there were no drought or flood all year long. This caused the vegetables and plants in that era to grow very well, tasted good, and had more supreme qualities than in today’s world. Due to the good food and weather, it caused the humans in that era to have much longer life duration.

The climate conditions was pure and the plants in that era was delicious and have much more supreme qualities than today’s.

For the geography of the world in that era or in the previous Buddha Aeon, there was the same amount of water and land. However, the land had a wider landscape and was more connected than the world’s geography today, in which countries were more divided into smaller continents. However, there were areas in that era that were still similar to islands or separated from the main land, but were not that dispersed like in the world’s geography today.
The land had a wider landscape and were not divided into small continents
    Moreover, in the different areas of that era, there were divisions of small and large states that were ruled by kings. Some states were as large as huge countries that can be seen in today’s world. However, there were also some states that were as large as only one small province in Thailand.

States were divided into districts, some small, some large.

For the governing system in the past era, most of the states were ruled by absolute monarchy. And in every state, there were freedom in how the governing system operated. Even though villagers in the previous era lived together like siblings, and had governing systems based upon divisions of land, there were times where misunderstandings spewed between states. However, in the previous era, there were fewer misunderstandings that spewed between states than in today’s world.
Furthermore, the government systems of every state were very similar to each other. Each state had its own small groups of agency for collecting tax and looking after the safety of its citizens.

Absolute Monarchy with justice as a governing system
The villagers of each state had various types of jobs. However, most of them were farmers and based their living on agriculture. Most of them grew plants, fruits, and animals for breeding. However, there were also other types of citizens that had different jobs such as working for the government and conducting businesses. Similarly to the world’s economic system today, the economic systems in that era also used fiat money to purchase objects, but not an exchange of commodities.

However, the most interesting story is that during that era, is that there was one important state. The state that we are talking about is not too small or too large. This made all the surrounding states envious and wondered why this one important state was both supreme in economic growth and moral standards.
There were many kinds of occupations for people at that time
