祭孔大典 (The Ceremony of Confucius)
祭孔大典 (The Ceremony of Confucius) 台北孔廟始於1879年,並於1939年重建於大龍街。 廟宇的設計是採用傳統的閔式建築。 台北孔廟, the Taipei Confucius Temple was begun in 1879, and re-erected on DaLong Street in 1939. The design of the temple is an example for typical Fujian temple style. This is the main building of Taipei Confucius Temple, called "大成殿(Dachengdian)". 每年的 9月28日 是教師節,也是「至聖先師」孔子的誕辰紀念。 September 28 is "教師節", means "Teacher's Day", which is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Confucius, "The Ultimate Sage." 在這一天,台北孔廟都會舉行隆重莊嚴的祭孔大典。 On this day, Taipei Confucius Temple would hold a grand and solemn ceremony dedicated to Confucius. "釋奠典禮開始" means "The ceremony begins". All these musicians, dancers and deacons, advance to the beats of the drum with making 5 steps and 1 stop in between beats. "陪祭官就位" means "The assistant sacrifice officers take their designated positions". "迎神" means "Welcome the spirit". This is to reverentially welcome the descent of Confucius' spirit. They hold "提燈(Lanterns), "傘(Umbrella)", and "扇(Sunshade)". "萬世師表" on the Sunshade means "Confucius is the model teacher of ages". "行初獻禮" means "Initial principal presentation". 重頭戲就是傳統的「八佾舞」,表達對孔子「有教無類」、「因材施教」理念的敬意。 The ceremony is highlighted by a traditional "八佾舞", means "Eight-Square Formation Dance", to pay tribute to the Confucian ideologies of "teaching without social class discrimination" and "teaching students in accordance with their aptitude". The "鏞鐘(Yong Zhong)" is a large bell, set to the east side. The "晉鼓(Jin Gu)" is a large drum, set to the west side. The arrangement represents matin bells and vesper drums. The "笙(Sheng)" is consisting of 13 bamboo pipes inserted into a metal chamber with finger holes. They dance with the ritual objects "翟(Pheasant tail feather)" and "籥(Ancient short flute)". According to the Chinese ancient customs, the pheasant tail feather is the most beautiful thing. Therefore, it is taken for showing the highest respects to Confucius. 在教師節這天,人們也會表彰及慰勞老師們整年的辛勞。 Teacher's Day is also a day to honor our teachers and acknowledge their hard work over the past years.

10 Life Lessons From Confucius We Should All Follow
Confucius (551–479 BC)[1] was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity. His followers competed successfully with many other schools during the Hundred Schools of Thought era only to be suppressed in favor of the Legalists during the Qin Dynasty. Following the victory of Han over Chu after the collapse of Qin, Confucius's thoughts received official sanction and were further developed into a system known as Confucianism. Confucius is traditionally credited with having authored or edited many of the Chinese classic texts including all of the Five Classics, but modern scholars are cautious of attributing specific assertions to Confucius himself. Aphorisms concerning his teachings were compiled in the Analects, but only many years after his death. Confucius's principles had a basis in common Chinese tradition and belief. He championed strong family loyalty, ancestor worship, respect of elders by their children and of husbands by their wives. He also recommended family as a basis for ideal government. He espoused the well-known principle "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself", an early version of the Golden Rule.

Confucianism as a World Religion
Is Confucianism a religion? If so, why do most Chinese think it isn't? From ancient Confucian temples, to nineteenth-century archives, to the testimony of people interviewed by the author throughout China over a period of more than a decade, this book traces the birth and growth of the idea of Confucianism as a world religion. The book begins at Oxford, in the late nineteenth century, when Friedrich Max Müller and James Legge classified Confucianism as a world religion in the new discourse of "world religions" and the emerging discipline of comparative religion. Anna Sun shows how that decisive moment continues to influence the understanding of Confucianism in the contemporary world, not only in the West but also in China, where the politics of Confucianism have become important to the present regime in a time of transition. Contested histories of Confucianism are vital signs of social and political change. Sun also examines the revival of Confucianism in China today and the social significance of the ritual practice of Confucian temples. While the Chinese government turns to Confucianism to justify its political agenda, Confucian activists have started a movement to turn Confucianism into a religion. Confucianism as a world religion might have begun as a scholarly construction, but are we witnessing its transformation into a social and political reality? —Princeton University Press

This is a PowerPoint presentation I made for the Classical Chinese Philosophy class I taught at the University of Notre Dame.
Confucius-- No Need to Bow visit to Duke Ling of Lu
This clip from the recent Chinese blockbuster, "Confucius," really brings out the angle on Confucianism as focused more on social _beauty_ than on social _morality_ developed by Ames and Hall below: "Ritual actions, invested with the accumulated meaning of the tradition, are formalized structures upon which the continuity of the tradition depends and through which a person in the tradition pursues cultural refinement. Like a body of literature or a corpus of music, these rituals continue through time as a repository of the ethical and aesthetic insights of those who have gone before. A person engaged in the performance of a particular formal action, taking meaning from it while seeking himself to be appropriate for it, derives meaning and value from this embodiment, and further strengthens it by his contribution of novel meaning and value." --Roger Ames and David Hall, _Thinking Through Confucius__New York: State University of New York Press, 1987.

The 5 Most Important Things to know about Korean Religions | Don Baker
The USC Korean Studies Institute Public Intellectual Video Series features experts on various Korea-related issues. This episode presents a talk by cultural historian, Don Baker (Professor of Korean History and Civilization, University of British Columbia). South Korea has one of the most diverse religious environments on earth. No single religion dominates, but there are strong Buddhist, Protestant and Catholic communities. Moreover, Confucianism is still an important component of the ritual life of South Koreans, as is shamanism. This contrasts sharply with North Korea, in which the official philosophy of Juche assumes the role normally assigned to religions. The emergence of this complex religious culture over the course of the 20th century reveals much about the distinctive characteristics of Korea’s journey to modernity. Of particular note is the increase in organized religious activity as South Korea industrialized and democratized. This video is supported by the Core University Program for Korean Studies through the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea and Korean Studies Promotion Service of the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS-2014-OLU-2250003).

Confucius' Philosophies Placed an emphasis on learning Meritocratic—one rises through one's learning and efforts, not through birth or marriage Patriarchal Confucius' Philosophies "...he argued that these men...were superior not because of aristocratic birth but because of their education and training. Thus, superior men were made, not born. This meant that even a peasant could aspire to this exalted status [become a ruler]" (Stearns, 83).

The Royal Ancestral Ritual in the Jongmyo Shrine and its Music
UNESCO: Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity - 2008 URL: https://ich.unesco.org/en/RL/royal-ancestral-ritual-in-the-jongmyo-shrine-and-its-music-00016 Description: The Jongmyo Shrine in Seoul is the setting for a Confucian ritual dedicated to the ancestors of the Joseon dynasty (14th to the 19th century) that encompasses song, dance and music. The ritual is practised once a year on the first Sunday in May and is organized by the descendants of the royal family. It offers a unique example of a Confucian ritual, which is no longer celebrated in China. The tradition is inspired by classical Chinese texts concerning the cult of ancestors and the notion of filial piety. It also includes a prayer for the eternal peace of the ancestors spirits in a shrine conceived as their spiritual resting place. The order of the ceremony was defined in the fifteenth century and most elements have remained unchanged until today. During the rite, the priests, dressed in ritual costume with a crown for the king and diadems for the others, make offerings of food and wine in ritual vessels. The Jongmyo Jerye is music played to accompany the rituals and is performed on traditional instruments, such as gongs, bells, lutes, zithers and flutes. The dances are performed by 64 dancers in 8 lines representing the opposing yet complementary forces of Yin and Yang as set out in the Confucian texts.The Munmu dance, accompanied by the harmonious and soothing Botaepyong music, is characterized by a first step to the left. While the Munmu dance symbolizes the force of the Yang, the Mumu dance, accompanied by Jeongdaeeop music and characterized by a movement to the right, represents the force of the Yin. The ancestral ritual is nowadays often considered to be devoid of meaning, especially in the context of the growing importance of Christianity. However, the ritual and its music are protected through the National List of Intangible Heritage and the 1982 Law for the Protection of Cultural Property. Country(ies): Republic of Korea

Discovering China - Confucius
Today, we are going to be starting off this first episode talking about Confucius. And if you are talking about notable figures in Chinese history, Confucius is a great place to start—because he really is the philosopher who defined Chinese society for the past two thousand years. Confucius is thought to have lived from 551 to 479 BC, during the so-called 'Spring and Autumn Period,' when China's Zhou Dynasty was slowly splitting up. This era later turned into the 'Warring States Period,' before China was unified again in around 200 BC. Confucius was born in the state of Lu. This is the modern day Shandong province. Now, at the time when Confucius was born, China was kind of like Medieval Europe. Different states were competing with each other for power. Confucius saw morality deteriorating and the aristocracy turning their back on the traditions of the Zhou Dynasty that Confucius viewed as a kind of Golden Age. Confucius felt he had a mission to return China to its former glory, to return to the 'Way' or Dao. Today, the Dao refers to China's traditional culture of self-cultivation and emphasis on the way of virtue. Confucius felt people in his age had lost true respect for the established rituals and norms of society. They merely carried out the formalities—without really understanding the true essence. To use the words of the time, "The world lacked the Dao." Thus Confucius started his mission of educating the populace. Confucius taught his disciples to become Gentlemen...instructing them in the six arts: Rites, music, archery, charioteering, calligraphy, and mathematics. Confucius stressed several philosophical concepts that would serve to maintain China's social structure for the next two millennia. These include: Benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and faithfulness. As well as loyalty and filial piety, the respectful relationship between subordinates and their superiors, such as sons and their fathers, or subjects and their rulers. Confucius was never employed in any significant government post during his lifetime. But during the Han Dynasty, almost 300 years after his death, Confucianism was adopted as China's state philosophy. Confucianism became known as one of China's three belief systems—along with Buddhism and Daoism. But, Confucianism is very much a philosophy for those living in society—whereas Buddhism and Daoism stress withdrawing from the world to seek spiritual enlightenment. The Confucian belief that rulers needed to be virtuous led to the establishment of the imperial examination system. These examinations started in the Sui Dynasty, which ran from 589 to 618 AD. The examinations saw officials selected based on their academic achievements rather than through a hereditary system, as was common in other parts of the world at the time. Thus scholars noted that for many centuries, China had the most advanced political system in the world. Gradually, these examinations became more structured through history. They saw prospective officials tested on their understanding and ability to memorize Confucian texts. Their answers during the exams had to demonstrate the well-cultivated thinking of a Confucian gentleman. The exam system ended a few years before the fall of imperial China in 1911. And after the Communist takeover in 1949, Confucianism was ruthlessly attacked—especially during the Cultural Revolution and campaign to smash the four Olds: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas. Since Confucianism had been at the very core of Chinese society for two thousand years, the Communist regime's attack against Confucianism can be seen as an attack on the very essence of Chinese culture. But Confucianism has survived, particularly due to the preservation of the customs in Taiwan and other countries. Today, when speaking of traditional Chinese culture, Confucius can be seen as one of the most influential figures from ancient times till the present day. His teachings are at the very heart of China's traditional culture of self-cultivation and emphasis on virtue.
