Buddha is not a name, but a title which means “One who is awake.” What a Buddha is aware of, is the nature of reality. The Buddha who lived 2600 years ago was not a god, but an ordinary man named Siddhartha Gautama, Who lived in what is now northern India and Nepal whose profound insight inspired the world. Although born a prince, he came to realise that conditioned experiences could not bring lasting happiness. After a long spiritual search he went into deep meditation, where he came to realise the nature of the mind.
Buddha achieved the state of enlightenment. This state of mind is free from disturbed emotions, it is filled with joy and active compassion. Buddhism teaches that we all live in a fog of illusion, created by erroneous perceptions and filled with ignorance. A Buddha is someone who is free from the fog. For the rest of his life, the Buddha taught anyone who asked how to reach enlightenment.

V.I.P Jiu 8 - The Full Story
The story of V.I.P Jiu 8 begins on the 2nd of July 2014. It is a tale that begins with a wrongly attributed, chipped and cracked wine cup that hid an astonishing secret dating back to imperial China, a secret connected to its longest-reigning emperor, Kangxi, who ruled China from 1662 until 1722.
The Kangxi Emperor was the second emperor of the Qing dynasty, credited with completing the conquest of China and presiding over one of China’s most glorious eras. He was the single most powerful person on earth at the time, ruling over a vast empire and over 100 million subjects.
The journey starts in Northern England and unfolds across multiple continents, with amazing highs and life-threatening lows. It involves a series of events that have led to the re-birth of a 300-year-old imperial Chinese liquor that hails from within the walls of the Forbidden City.
The V.I.P. Jiu 8 recipe consists of nine ingredients personally selected by the Kangxi Emperor. The recipe has lain hidden for three hundred years. It is unique in the fact that it is an ancient recipe that is brand-new to the market and does not copy or taste like any other spirit. It is historically, enjoyably and restoratively imperial.
