Confucianism - 6 worthy principles

https://www.ideapod.com/idea/6-Principles-of-Confucianism/56bb08045faac8a26effabc2 

Jen - includes the sense of dignity we should give to ALL living things, especially other humans.

Li - is considered the principle of gain, such as why people will actively seek out personal relationships and what people gain from society as a whole. The idea is to consider what does each person, individually and as a group, gain when they interact with one another.

Yi - the moral obligation to do good. This includes the ability to know and recognize what is right and wrong, and the ability to feel what is right and wrong.

Hsiao - parents should be revered, respected and honored since they created the being in question. Bringing honor to the family and revering someone who has brought honor to you.

Chih - moral wisdom and knowledge of things right and wrong.

Te - the morals of authority. For example, the government has authority if it can maintain economic and social order.

Thanks ideapod.

PS - I worry a little about Te, but this is about Confucianism, not me.

Thanks Wikipedia for the image.
