The Chinese phrase 世外桃源 refers to a hidden and untouched paradise where people live in harmony with nature and each other. According to Tao Yuanming’s prose entitled “Peach Blossom Spring”, a fisherman once got lost down the river on his way home. He came upon a beautiful forest of blossoming peach trees he had never seen before. He found a cave, the other side of which he was surprised to enter a whole new world. People had lived there for generations, far from the conflicts of the outside world. It was a land of eternal peace. After leaving, however, the fisherman could never find the place again. The story has become part of everyday language and popular culture through songs and movies. Because even though we can’t find paradise, sometimes the easiest way to come across it is by wandering around and getting lost. [András Gál]
