Calligraphy on filial piety in Shenzhen until Feb. 3


Calligraphic works at the exhibition.

A calligraphy exhibition under the theme of “filial piety” is being held at Bao’an Library.

In Confucian philosophy, filial piety is a virtue of respect for one’s parents, elders and ancestors. The Confucian “Classic of Filial Piety,” thought to be written around the fourth century B.C., has historically been the authoritative source on the Confucian tenet of filial piety. The book, a purported dialogue between Confucius and his student Zengzi, is about how to set up a good society using the principle of filial piety. The term can also be applied to general obedience.

Filial piety is considered a key virtue in Chinese culture and is the main moral of a large number of stories. One of the most famous collections of such stories is “The 24 Filial Exemplars.” These stories depict how children exercised their filial piety in the past.
