  1. well, it represents equal good and equal bad, so i would say that the white is good and the black is bad.
    i think yin is black and yang is white

  2. Taoism represents the Yin, & Confucianism represents the Yang.
    Actually, the Yin Yang is considered more of a Taoist symbol, rather than Confucianist.
    Confucianism has its own religious symbol.

  3. no.
    taoism used yin/yang. you see it in tai chi kung fu.
    yin is feminine, yang is masculine.
    confucius didn’t give a crap about all that exoteric crap.

  4. Both Daoism and Confucianism, along with Buddhism, together upheld the Chinese heritage, culture, tradition, and moral fabrics for the last few thousand years. When the Chinese Communist regime destroyed the religions and Chinese culture during the Great Cultural Revolution, moral standard declines subsequently leading to poisonous food and food additives exported all around the globe.
    On page #97 in the Zhuan Falun Lecture on the web, yin and yang are described:
    “Daoists usually consider the upper body yang and the lower body yin. Some people think the back of the body is yang and the front is yin. And then there are people who call the left side of the body yang and the right side yin. In China we have a saying “man left, woman right” and that’s where it comes from. And there really is something to that. The human body naturally has both yin and yang, so by yin and yang interacting, the body can reach a balance of yin and yang on its own, and lots and lots of beings can be created.”
    Confucianism doesn’t focus too much on yin and yang. In the Chinese Confucius’ teaching, high moral human characters are valued: respectful to heaven and earth, kindness, manner, knowledge, honesty, …etc. Confucianism is a philosophy emphasizing in good moral characters in one’s conduct toward others: from the family, to other people, and ultimately to the country.Here are some info about Confucius.

    Not relating to Buddhism nor Daoism, Falun Gong is a unique School, combining the Daoist and Buddhist practice, based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.
    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China. Can you kindly sign a petition to stop persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, please ?
