Neutrosophic Dialogues

By Smarandache, Florentin


Description
A book on the contrasts between the eastern Asian culture versus the western culture on topics such as education, medicine, science, and politics.

Summary
The difference between Western and Eastern cultures, on the whole, lies in the distinctive points of views: the differential view and the integral view, both of which are explored in this book.

Excerpt
Is oriental culture a kind of science? There lies a crucial difference in that Western science seeks the exterior solutions outside the heart. However, our ancient sages illustrated that humans are an integral part of the universe, and all the phenomena never skip out of the heart. And very fortunately, many wise men did succeed in cultivating their hearts to testify to the profound truth. So our Eastern classics focus on our inner cultivation. However people, including the overwhelming majority of the Chinese, would regard such education as being an extra (to life or science). Please contact the corresponding Taiwan or Singapore websites, where there are plenty of English versions of texts and videos of Buddhism, to request the standard translation. “What is Dao (Tao)? It is the natural principle all over the universe, the natural order, the essentiality of nature. The great universe has its order and rule, where the education of ancient sages roots. Education stems from here, and a human being has to obey the natural principle –Dao. In our Chinese notion of the integral of humans and nature; heaven, earth and human are an integral whole. Humans should understand the heart of heaven. What is the heart of heaven? The natural law, or natural rule. For humans, it is the human relationship, of husband-wife, brothers and sisters, monarch-subjects, friends, etc. It is the natural rule, not regulations or systems, nor schools or doctrines. Individuals conforming to it are said to practice Daoism. There is practice; there is gain bodily and heartily, called virtue or morality, which is the partial standard of daily conduct. However, this partial standard should accord to the universal Dao and natural law. This is where the education of ancient sages roots. The Chinese emphasized education starting in a prenatal stage. A pregnant mother should be upright in heart, truthful in appearance; for every emotion: pleasure, anger, sorrow or joy, influences the fetus. The Chinese understood this principle, and therefore their babies were gifted, and developed in the ten months of pregnancy. Parents had the responsibility for their children. As I often mentioned, disaster falls nowadays, and still is imminent in the future, why? I have only one answer, “Suffer comes from disobeying the olds (the Buddha, Laozi, Confucius, etc.).” It is the power of the culture that makes China survive for thousands of years, and the marrow of that culture lies in education. The rulers were supported by people, for they didn’t rule with their own imperial edicts, but with the sage’s education of Confucianism, Buddhism and Daoism. The society maintained peace, enjoying the wise period of prosperity, which was attributed to the ancient education, so they benefited from the olds’ teachings. Since the Republic of China, unfortunately, Chinese people have lost their national pride, and have therefore fallen into a tragic state. An overwhelmingly large number worship and keep the blind faith in foreign countries, as to overthrow our own culture. Yes, but is there any better substitute to benefit people? If no, troubles arise.
