大同世界‧小康局面 * We Are One‧Home Sweet Home
Confucius participated and assisted in the Year-end Sacrifice Ceremony of Lu.
When the sacrifice was over, he went to the observation deck of the palace, and sighed with great emotion.
The sigh of Confucius was probably for the ceremony.
Yán yǎn waiting by the side: why do gentleman sigh?
Confucius: The time when governing with benevolence & morality,

Shang and Zhou dynasties, I was not able to catch up,
but I am sincerely yearning for it!
When governing with benevolence and morality, the world is shared by all.
