Happy Birthday Confucius

“What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.” Confucius formulated the Golden Rule 2,500 years ago. This year we celebrate his birthday 9 October 2015 (Eighth Moon, Day 27).

Confucius is one of the most influential of China’s philosophers. He left a world-famous legacy of teachings and ethical principles that stress self-enlightenment through the Five Virtues of charity, justice, propriety, wisdom, and loyalty. His teachings, emphasizing proper behavior and loyalty to friends and family, shaped Chinese culture and continue to influence Japan, Korea, Vietnam and more to this day.
