Three short films on filial duty


Rich Son, Poor Son

What Is That?

子游问孝。 子曰:“今之孝者, 是谓能养。 至于犬马, 皆能有养。 不敬, 何以别乎?”

[Zi You asks what is filial duty. Master Confucius replies: "Nowadays, people think that filial duty means just physically taking care of one's parents. But people also physically take care of their pets and livestock; so what is the difference between this and filial duty if one does not respect one's parents?"]
