The Student's Code of Conduct
"A true disciple is filial; has fraternal love; is vigilant and trustworthy; cares for the community; seeks the company of the virtuous, and pursues knowledge." Di Zi Gui or The Student's Code of Conduct, has its origins from this line in Analects of Confucius. Inspired by it, Chinese scholar Li Yuxiu of the Kangxi era formulated seven categories of instruction for his disciples'conduct in relation to people and the environment. This set of instructions became Xun Meng or Lessons for Beginners, and was later revised and renamed as Di Zi Gui by Jia Cunren a Qing scholar. Long regarded as an essential text for moral instruction, the classic serves as one of the most widely-used texts in educating generations of young Chinese. Its wisdom remains relevant and stands tall as a beacon in a sea of relentless change in today's world. With illustrations depicting modern-day context, this book attests to the classic's insight and practicality, rendering it a must-read that promises the essentials of all human relationships.
