JXNU international students celebrate 2567th anniversary of Confucius

   

   

On September 28th, 54 international students from 9 countries with Confucius Institute Scholarship gathered in front of Confucius' Stature in Xiao Xingling of Yaohu Campus to commemorate the 2567th birthday of  Confucius.

Unexpected gale did not affect the enthusiasm of these students. They read Confucian classic pieces in front of the Confucius Stature such as the excerpts of "the Analects" and "the University". The Confucius once said:When I walk along with two others, they may serve me as my teachers. I will select their good qualities and follow them, their bad qualities and avoid them..."; “What the great learning teachers, is to illustrate illustrious virtue; to renovate the people; and to rest in the highest excellence.” With the burst of the sounds of reading, the sun finally penetrated the thick clouds to the earth.

 

   

 

 

 

 

These international students hosted a solemn ceremony to show respect for the Confucius. According to the Chinese customs, they also need to bow three times in front of the Confucius Stature. “One bow for your teacher, two bow for your meditation, three bow for your circumstances.”

 Finally, the students accepted the certificate of Confucius institute scholarship from their teacher.
