Harmony in the Family is the Basis for Success in Any Undertaking


Family is the core of society and the most fundamental origin of Chinese traditional ethics. Family, the eternal harbor of our souls, is also the smallest unit of our society. A family is not only a house but also where kinds of relationships belong to. The family consciousness retains the deepest attachment to the cultural tradition and the deepest knowledge of our ancient nation. A simple Chinese character “ 家 ”(jia, meaning family) has endless extended meanings. Those Chinese characters closely relating to “ 家 ” like “ 室 ”(shi, meaning room), “ 堂 ”(tang, meaning hall), “ 安 ”(an, meaning peace),  “ 定 ”(ding, meaning stability), “ 宗 ”(zong, meaning sect) and “ 宽 ”(kuan, meaning wide) are full of family wisdom and secrets of the booming of the world.
