The Great Learning

The Great Learning by Tsai Chih Chung

A graphic novel version of a Confucian classic, with an opening attributed to Confucius (posthumously written down by his disciples) and a commentary by Zhu Xi. The importance of self-cultivation, many variations on the principle of not treating people as you would not want to be treated by a person in the same relationship to you, and some about government.
