Explication on My Professional Career and Accomplishments
Editor’s Words: In early June 2001, State University of
Pennsylvania in the United States invited Mr. Hongbao Zhang to work as professor
in this university. In the contact with each other, the university got to know
Mr. Hongbao Zhang much more. They discussed further if Mr. Hongbao Zhang can
come to Pennsylvania for assisting to establish a college of management and be
the dean of this college. The self-introduction of Professional Accomplishments
below was drawn up by Mr. Hongbao Zhang on invitation at that time.
Two years later, Mr. Zhang turned his attention to the research of politics and international relations, and the research of finance and investment. He taught himself in subjects of “The world Economics and Politics in Present Age”, “Compare Chinese Political System with Western System in the Present Age”, “American Government and American Politics”. His latest achievement is to put forward “Theory of Re-combination of Nations”. About finance and investment, Mr. Hongbao Zhang also taught himself in “Business Affairs of Finance in the United States”, “Investment by Collective Fund”. He merely tried to put what he has learned in practice and in a short time, he gained great achievements, which made people including professionals looking him with new eyes.
From kindergarten, through elementary school and high school, up to on-the-job training and then college, what I received was basically a regular modern education.
In 1974, I completed my training in agriculture at the Academy of Agricultural Science of Heilongjiang Province.
I was in charge of the Scientific Research Office of a branch state farm, a major cadre of the Department of Science of Technology, and a member of Science and Technology Committee of the farm headquarters. For my good performance both in specific scientific research programs and in science and technology management, I was selected, as one of ten major pacemakers in technological applications in the Management Bureau of Jiusan Farm of Heilongjiang Province, to attend the First Scientific Forum of the farm headquarters.
In 1977, I was enrolled in Harbin Advanced Junior College of Metallurgical Studies, majoring in ore dressing.
Professional Accomplishments: I participated in successfully locating a cinnabar mine for the Heihe Gold Mining Bureau and wrote a report on the procedure, drawing much attention from the Metallurgy Bureau of Heilongjiang Province.
During my stay in Heilongjiang, I was enrolled in the Chinese program of Heihe Regional College of Continuing Education.
At the same time, I also participated in the training of intermediate Japanese.
In 1983, during the period when I served as the deputy captain of the gold dredger of Juma Gold Mining Bureau and the period when I served as director of the bureau’s enterprise reorganization office, I self studied the college undergraduate textbooks of business management and Harvard Encyclopedia of Management.
Afterwards, I was chosen as a third-tier member by China’s General Bureau of Gold Mining and sent to Shenyang Gold Mining Univesity (used to be called Shenyang Gold Mining College) to engage in guided preparations for college entrance examinations. While studying there, I was also enrolled in the management psychology program (or “behavioral science”) offered by the Psychology Correspondence College of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Later, I passed the national college entrance examinations and was enrolled in the economic management program offered by Beijing University of Science and Technology. During this period, I was also enrolled in the program of legal studies offered by Beijing University of Liberal Arts and Humanities.
Over the years, I also studied, on my own, part of the curricula of anatomy, internal medicine, oncology, medical psychology, and clinical medicine; the textbooks I studies were teaching materials used by Beijing Medical University.
I studied independently the subjects of leadership studies, administrative management, studies on military strategies, and western political studies.
I studied independently youth psychology, geriatric psychology, educational psychology, and commercial psychology.
I studied independently modern hotel administration (college curriculum), as well as real estates development and management, banking, and public relations.
I studied independently journalism, photography, and esthetics.
I studied independently college administration and management, pedagogy, and history of philosophy.
I studied independently a series of books on contemporary achievements on science and technology.
In 1998, I completed my self-study on MBA curriculum prescribed by Harvard University of USA.
Up till now, I also completed my study of the doctoral curriculum of public administration (remote Chinese courses).
Besides being immersed in standard modern education in both science and culture, over the past thirty some eyes, I also engaged in systematic studies of traditional Chinese culture, especially cultivation studies, medicine and philosophy (to be specified later), as well as comparative cultural studies and comparative religious studies, particularly on areas where the modern civilization and traditional cultures can interact with each other.
I initiated the Qilin Culture based on the foundation of integrating the best of the West and Oriental civilizations, the best of the modern and the ancient cultures. I created the life-cultivation enterprise.
In 1995, I completed the merger of all Zhonggong institutions and established the Qilin Group, which consisted of five major systems and boasted more than one hundred thousand employees.The first system was life-cultivation technical training. The system extended throughout China’s cities and rural areas, consisting of more than three thousand schools and almost 10,000 teaching and servicing stations (chain institution).
The second system was life-cultivation products and services. The center of this system was Taiweike Corporation, with its subsidiaries throughout the country, including almost every province, municipality, and county. This system was a complement to the system of life-cultivation technical training; therefore, every Zhonggong training school is accompanied by an office of Taiweike Corporation. The second system has its own production facilities and product sales network. The production facilities included three printing houses � Weishui Printing Plant, Zhongnanshan Printing Plant, and Jinfoshan Printing Plant; two mineral water manufacturers � Guangdong Changshou Villege Mineral Water Factory and Shangan Jiulongquan Mineral Water Factory; two clothes manufacturers; one factory of handicraft works, which produces 120 products of various kinds; about ten of these products received state golden awards.
For my outstanding accomplishments in entrepreneurship, I was listed in Outstanding Public Figures of Sichuan (because during its early phase, Zhonggong’s major enterprises were largely located in Sichuan). The Qilin Group I had created was listed in World Economic Almanac.
The third system is live-cultivation bases, including eight life-cultivation service bases, each of which could accommodate a thousand people, and twenty-three bases, which can each accommodate four hundred people. The services include hotels, shopping centers, automobiles, restaurants, telecommunications, security and other community services of every category, combining property management such as real estates development with tourism.
The fourth system is scientific research. The International Academy of Life Science was located in a large-scale base that had been purchased from Chengdu Military Command. This institution included five housing complexes, occupying an area of five kilometer in length, and facilitated the Academy itself, its subsidiary hospital, the Human Physical Science Training School, a training school for people with special physical capabilities, and a martial art training school.
The fifth system offers standard education, including two universities, a junior college and school that offers a series of curricula of elementary, middle school and high school education.
Chongqing International University of Life Science and Technology (abbreviated as Chongqing Life Science University) was located at the old address of the government of Nanan District of Chongqing Municipality, occupying a area of 800 acres, more than 100 buildings, a meeting hall that could accommodate 10,000 people and a stadium with 10,000 seats. The university was divided into three branches: the headquarters was in Xian, the first branch was in Zhongnanshan, the second branch was in Weishui, and the third branch was in Lantian. The university had more than 20,000 students (including correspondence students), and had eight departments: the Department of Foreign Languages, the Department of Esthetics and Arts, the Department of Security, the Department of Martial Arts, the Department of Special medicine, The Department of Education, and the Department of Life-Cultivation Training.
The college is Jinfoshan Academy of Special Medicine.
The educational system was established to accommodate the cultural and educational needs of the Qilin Group’s 100,000 employees and their more than 400,000 family members. The educational facilities provided a full range of education institutions, from kindergartens, elementary schools, to middle schools and high schools, from technical schools to continuing education institutions.
I, as well as a dozen schools that I had created, was listed in A Dictionary of Educational Facilities Established by China’s Social Organizations.
In the area of traditional culture:
During a period of over thirty years, I studied independently a portion of traditional Chinese medicine, traditional Tibetan medicine, Qigong (a complete college curriculum), Feishui studies, Zhouyi studies, strategies, studies of Chinese emperors, military studies, martial arts studies, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucius studies, Fa studies (Han Feizi), five-elements theory (Zhou Yan), fortune studies, as well as Guiguzi theory; I also conducted researches on Buddhism and Taoism as well as on Taoist, Buddhist and Christian music, rituals, and architectural styles. Furthermore, I carried out in-depth studies on Qigong techniques of various schools, including the cultivation methodologies of Mizong branch and Xianzong branches of Buddhism, as well as the cultivation methodologies of Taoist internal alchemy, and cultivation methodologies through sexual intercourse, food and medicines.
Major accomplishments are as follows:
A I compiled a serial of studies on Zhonggong life-cultivation methodologies, including Zhonggong Phase one through Phase four, and a general guide to Zhonggong Phase one through phase four.
Among these, Zhonggong Phase one received general acclaim from the society; I was appointed chief advisor, senior advisor or advisor respectively by International Federation of Qigong Science, Beijing University, Qihua University, Beijing University of Medical Science, and a dozen of other institutions, hired as a researcher and professor by Beijing Research Institute of Life-Cultivation Science, and elected as permanent honorary chairman of World Association of Qigong Specialists. Zhonggong received the honor of being “the best methodology” in the Asian Sports Festival, and I received the title of the initiator of the most outstanding Qigong methodology.
B I created “the great methodology of Yuandun.” This methodology integrates the essence of the life-cultivation methods of various schools, including the world-renowned, advanced cultivation techniques such as Taoist internal cultivation and “Mizong” cultivation methods. I extracted the best elements from these methods and transformed the techniques into something simpler, more concise, and more understandable so that they merged into a highly integrated and superior technique that is more accessible for the society and ordinary people.
C I initiated special medical studies, which include not only special medical treatment methods through special physical capabilities and Qigong, but also special medical methods such as Fengshui treatment techniques, Yiching treatment techniques and “Ziweidoushu” treatment techniques, as well as various special, drug-free, natural medical treatments derived from Tibetan medicine, Mongolian medicine, Yi medicine, Chinese medicine, and other popular folk medicines, ranging from the ancient to the present, from Chinese to abroad. I established a special therapeutic institution, which consisted mainly of the Subsidiary Hospital of International Academy of Life Science, Zhongnanshan Convalescence Center, and Jinfoshan Special Hospital. For over a decade, I have collected more than 100,000 cases of treatments and recoveries, and used a thousand typical cases from them in the compilation of the book Special Medical Cases of China (six volumes, 1.5 million words), that has been published in China.
D I created the art of Qigong painting and developed more than thirty artists of Qigong painting. I wrote and edited the book Chinese Qilin Qigong Paintings, which has been published in China.
E I created the Qilin philosophy. The major principles include not only “the eight principal laws of the universe,” but also “the grand universal desing.”
In 1999, I was listed in Who's Who in the World (China Volume).
