The Way of Learning

learningChina The way of great learning
consists in illustrating noble virtues,
in renewing and staying close to people,
and in reaching the supreme good.

Vatican Commission for the Catholic Church in China
quoting “an ancient Chinese sage”

Chinese symbol explained: The first character means to study. It is composed of two parts: a symbol that means “to accumulate knowledge” above a symbol for a child in a doorway. The second character means to practice constantly, and it shows a bird developing the ability to leave the nest. The upper symbol represents flying; the lower symbol, youth. For the oriental mind, learning is on-going. “Study” and “practice constantly” together, suggest that learning should mean: “mastery of the way of self-improvement”.
