From Mohism’s Book of Mozi: Book 3 – Identification with the Superior Part 2 of 3

From Mohism’s Book of Mozi: Book 3 – Identification with the Superior Part 2 of 3

Mozi or Mo Tzu was a Chinese philosopher who lived around 460 BC to 391. He was a pacifist who traveled from one region to another to try to convince rulers from their plans of conquest. Mo Tzu’s teachings encompass self-reflection to attain true self knowledge, universal love and enlightened self-interest in social relations. He advocated self-restraint in which a person would indulge in neither material nor Spiritual extravagance. His philosophy encompassed the concept that one must do actions which brought the most benefit for the general welfare of all. People might then ask, "At the present time, rulers are not absent from the empire. Why then is there disorder in the empire?" We now present an excerpt of Mo Tzu’s teachings, “Identification with the Superior” from the book Mozi.
