The Man named Khong Tu...
Before studying the Texts of Khong Tu, the student
must know by heart Minh Tam Buu Giam. For this reason, I would like to present to You the "Geatest Master of All Generations
in Anywhere in the world!.."... Khong Tu...
In the period of Dong Chu ( Empire Chu at the East ) in the
VI th century before Christ, in the region of North-East of China, Nhan Thi, the third wife
of an mandarin Khong in the region of Lo, was giving born a child Khong Khau, with
the nickname Trong Ni.
More than two thousand years, his name is forgotten, because
of prevention the scorn of his name!... Khong Phu Tu is named with great respect.or more respectable...
Duc Khong Phu Tu . He was more reverend than anyone in the world, even Holy-Person. The Catholic
pilgrim to China, at that time, named him ...Confucius.
At the age of 3, with the loss of his parents, he was
living in very miserable condition, as he mentioned in the book "The Logic theme"....
"In my chilhood , I was very poor, I must working all kinds of jobs for supporting my living cost.!..."
Perhaps, it was the reason for his studies and his improvement of his logic,
and his leadership.
He fell of success his dream, but he was named " Great Teacher of all
times.." ( Van The Su Bieu ), great teacher of many generations. With more students in many generations in
China, he was also Great Teacher for many race at many countries, even he was unknown in the period he was
living.."Spring-Autumn" ( Xuan Thu).
Like Socrates, he never accepted that he was the author
of many philosophic or educational theories, of which he teached his students. As he sais.. " I collected,
and changed for more comprehensible the texts of many generations,... before I teach my students..." Among
his students, Chu Cong ( Chu Cong Dan), the most brilliant was brother of Chu Vu
Vuong, the First Emperor of the Chu Kingdom.about 6centuries before Khong Tu.
Chu Cong gave us many precious books for the self discipline, the administration,
and the politeness. He was also a man with may influence for the governments in the period of Spring-Autmun" ( Xuan Thu).
The " Bible of Politeness" ( Kinh Le) of Khong Tu gave many influence
with "The Politeness of the Chu " ( Chu Le). which collected the complete ideas of Chu Cong.
Among more the three thousand students, he had " seventy two great
men" ( That Thap Nhi Hien), well known at that period. During the time of Khong Tu, just children of the
great people could go to school. Khong Tu changed the rule, teached all brilliant students, rich or poor. That was
the great and important revolution for the people in any class.
His text was enlightened by his three thousand students, by mouth from his generation
to other generation.
After three hundred years of his death, the students began to carve his teaching
to the pieces of wood for propagation. During the time he was living, Khong Tu was an hero, after his death, his
students considered him as a Holy-Man who symbolized the brilliant civilisation, the greatest intelligence of China.
What he was saying, was carved in the rock. Each province has had the temple for his worship. Until today, thru many generation,nobody
doubted the value of his teaching. The scholar men modified his teaching for more comprehensive, but no one might criticize
Today, we can classify his texts in nine books: Five Bibles (
Ngu Kinh) included Litetary Bible (Kinh Thi ), Astronomy Bible ( Kinh Dich), Poetry Bible ( King Thu),
Politeness Bible ( Kinh Le) and Spring-Autumn Bible ( Kinh Xuan Thu). The Spring- Autumn Bible was written
as a history book with the events in the past, before Khong Tu. That was the difference between this Bible to others
Bibles...Four great Books ( Tu Thu ), included Academy (Dai Hoc), Moderate ( Trung Dung),
The Logic Theme( Luan Ngu) and one book named ..Manh Tu, .whose name was adopted by one of his famous disciple... a
Scholar and Philosophe. This student 's living many generations after Khong Tu, about 6th century before
Christ. This scholar made the explanation clearer for the population than the texts of Khong Tu.
Among nine books, The Logic theme was the most important
book, its collected the highest intelligence of Khong Tu. This book mentioned the Doctrine of the role
of The Creator in the people's fate (Thien Menh Luan).Also in this book, Khong Tu would like to teach the King
to govern people with the will of the Creator. He also mentioned the role of the hero's politeness toward the people. In The
logic Theme, Khong Tu did not believe of Devil.." When we didn't worship Man, how we have to worship Devil?"
He repeated often the role of The Virtue and The Politeness to govern the population. He would like
also to see the Education for the population, instead of rich, high class people.
In the period of the Kingdom Tong, XI and XII centuries,
a scholar, Trinh Minh Dao, great student of Chu Hy, completed the explanation of the Nine Books of
Khong Tu. For that reason, the nouns The Door of Khong ( Cua Khong) and The Court of Trinh
( San Trinh), was well known since then, for the Chinese Education
