Impartiality – 公箴

  • 公箴
  • GONG (Impartiality)

天無不覆 地無不載 天無私覆,地無私載。世界眾生,同受天覆地載之恩,得天之三光以養,食地之五谷以生。可見天地好生之心,至公無私。
O (禮)「天之所覆,地之所載。」O覆,蓋也。載,乘也。
不偏不倚 如人能以天地之心為心,凡制裁一切事理,自然如衡之平,不偏不倚。
無憎無愛 即於此於彼,亦不以私心而動憎愛。
勿分畛域 世界雖有國界種界教界以及種種界限,心中不要 存畛域之見。
執兩用中 守其中道而行,亦不致趨於極端。
O (中庸)「執其兩端,用其中於民,其斯以為舜乎。」
化天行下 是謂大公 以此教化於天下,乃大公無我之心也

Heaven has gifted us with talents and wisdom to enable us to render services to the world. If we let our selfish desires get the better of us and allow ourselves to be unconscious and dreaming all the time, then our existence will become of no importance to the world. In order to find out the truth about life, we must first of all readjust our hearts and thoughts. Once we have found the truth, it is our duty to propagate it and teach it to others who have not yet achieved JUE (A).

(A) The Works of Mencius: “I am the one gifted by Heaven with the talents and wisdom to first comprehend the truth. I will propagate it and teach the people.”
