Until now, the influence is still strong.

The main teaching of Confucius emphasizes how to live a harmonious life by prioritizing morality or virtue.

A person is born to undergo a certain relationship so that everyone has certain obligations.

Confucianism is a school of political, intellectual and religious thought developed in the 5th century BC by a Chinese philosopher named Confucius.

In China, this teaching is named Ru Jia or Ju Chia, which means the School of Scientists.

Confucianism helps reform government, so that it provides benefits to people, and builds morals especially in internal government problems.

Confucianism began in China, which then spread to Korea, Japan and Vietnam.
