God Love All Beings
Quotes from the World Religion

A Proper Understanding of Religion

It is essential to have proper understanding of what religion is all about. The Chinese word for religion is 宗教 (Zong-jiao). The character 宗 (Zong) means ‘main,’ ‘important,’ or ‘noble and esteemed.’ The character 教 (Jiao) means ‘education,’ ‘teachings,’ or ‘actions that serve to moralise, civilise or enlighten humanity.’ Put together, 宗教 (Zong-jiao) means ‘the main education,’ ‘the important teachings,’ and ‘the noble, esteemed actions that moralise, civilise, or enlighten people.’ Observing closely every major religion’s sacred scriptures and history of education, we can see that the principal contents of religious teachings can be classified into four categories: morality, ethics, causality and sacred wisdom.

Quotes of the Day
Lao Tzu

A good traveler leaves no track or trace.
A good speech leaves no flaws.
A good reckoner uses no counters.
A well-shut door needs no bolts, and yet it cannot be opened.
A well-tied knot needs no rope and yet none can untie it.
Therefore the sage is always good in saving men and consequently no man is rejected.
He is always good in saving things and consequently nothing is rejected.
This is called following the light (of Nature) (1)
Therefore the good man is the teacher of the bad,
And the bad is the material from which the good may learn.
He who does not value the teacher,
Or greatly care for the material,
Is greatly deluded although he may be learned.
Such is the essential mystery.
