Image of confucius

Shri Confucius was a wise philosopher, teacher, and politician who lived in ancient China over 2,500 years ago. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in Chinese history, and his teachings on ethics and morality continue to influence people to this day.

Confucius believed in the importance of education and self-improvement, and he spent much of his life traveling throughout China, teaching and advising people on how to live a virtuous life. He taught that a person's character and moral behavior were more important than their wealth or social status, and he emphasized the importance of treating others with respect and kindness.

One of Confucius' most significant contributions to Chinese culture was his compilation of the I Ching, or Book of Changes. This ancient text is a collection of divination techniques used for personal reflection and decision-making, and it remains one of the most widely used and respected works of Chinese philosophy to this day.

Confucius' teachings have been recorded in the Analects, a book that contains a collection of his sayings and conversations. This book has become a classic text of Chinese philosophy and is still studied by people all over the world.
