What is Confucianism and Taoism?

5 COMMENTS

  1. 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. Therefore Confucius teaching is suitable from kindergarteners, students in many levels: politicians, parents, workers, merchants, to empire. The study of Confucianism was required to pass written examination for government posts in many dynasties of China. Confucius attempted to convince the empires to execute peaceful ruling over the citizens as to prevent war and killings. Confucius continued to learn to gain new knowledge, while he had many students and was famous.
    In many beginner Daoists, they are somewhat similar to the wizards of the Western world. “In the Daoist small worldly paths they don’t cultivate longevity. What they do is all about fortune-telling, feng shui reading, exorcising evil, and healing people, and most small worldly paths use sorcery.” copied from page #105 in the Lecture.
    In an higher level, the Daoist teaching can be found in Dao Te Ching and Daoist Canon. In order to comprehend the ancient scriptures, you’ll need to be an excellent Chinese scholar in Chinese literature. Or you’ll need to find a high level Daoist master, who is difficult to come by.
    There is an alternative much higher level, you learn about the Daoist belief from the online lecture:

    An excerpt from the Zhuan Falun Lecture about the difference:
    “Daoists cultivate True, Good, Endure with an emphasis on being True. That’s why Daoists strive to, “cultivate truth and nourish inborn nature, say true words, do true things, be a truthful person, return to your original, true self, and ultimately cultivate into a True Person.” But they also have Endure, and they also have Good, it’s just that the emphasis is on cultivating the True part.”
    Not relating to Buddhism nor Daoism, Falun Gong is a unique Buddha School, combining the Daoist and Buddhist practice. consisting 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 ahead of the Beijing Olympics, please ?
