I am Chinese philosopher named K'ung Fu-tzu or Confucius. I was born in 551 B.C.E in China.
I had government job which I gave up to devote my life to teaching people how to behave.
Confucius taught five basic virtues: 1) kindness 2) righteousness 3) emotional control 4) wisdom 5) trustworthiness
I believe that family and family values are very important. Children are taught to be very respectful of their parents and are taught to obey their parents.
There are five texts which contain Confucian scriptures. These include poems, history, rituals, and sayings.
There are ceremonies that take place in these temples. Confucius believed that "Heaven is the author of the virtue that is in me." He meant that he saw heaven itself as a kind of god, the god or supreme being who created virtue in us.
