Confucianism means teaching of a sage “Confucius” thoughts, and philosophy. Confucius had strongly affect’s on Chinese culture and tradition. Kung- Fu- Tzu (Confucius), was a famous sage, thinker, political figure and educator. “He was also a founder of the Ru schools of Chinese thoughts. His teaching, preserved in the Analects, form the foundation of much of subsequent Chinese speculation on the education and comportment of the ideal man, how such an individual should live his live and interact with others, and the forms of society and government in which he should participate.”(Rigel, 1). “Confucius considered himself a transmitter who consciously tried to reanimate the old in order to attain the new.”(Confucianism, 1). Confucius was born during the551 B.C. When Confucius born, his father was seventy yrs old and his mother was fifteen years old. At the age of three, his father passed away and his mother also died while he was around his twenties. He grew up in poverty but he had great physical strength. As a boy Confucius, learned about knowledge, ritual, and tradition by himself that he was interested. He married at age of 19th and had a one daughter and one son. Confucius became best-educated
man and his reputation of teaching became more powerful when he was thirty. He also referred to three aspects of life, such as devotion to God, social and political institution and daily behavior. He also spent more time to studying into life teaching disciples and about ritual practice. “The distinctive Confucian style of spiritual exercises involving daily self-examination, mindfulness in each social encounter, constant alertness in dealing with the world around, remembrance of ancient examples of the Way, and taut appreciation of the decrees of Heaven, he became a transmitter of cultural values, a moral teacher, and a learner of wisdom”. (Buddhism). In the Analects Confucius presents himself and his teaching as transmitter not a maker and also emphasis on the importance of study. Confucius wanted willingness to learning from his followers. Finally, Confucius wanted to people have grace, speak the truth, and demonstrative abilities. Because he didn’t liked the people who is very clever in talk but not have basic manners.In the conclusion, I would like to say that, in order to develop Buddhism took lots of effort because Buddha made his own religion, which has devotion to God, sacrifices, suffering. These are all true nature of reality that people has to face one day. Buddha made the noble path from people get happiness and internal peace.
