Why are we called China? Why is Chinese civilization the only civilization in the world without interruption?
One day, it dawned on me because"China" is not so simple as her name.
China, which meansA country of "middle way" and "balance". "Middle" means the middle way and balance. Its name is the ultimate wisdom of the universe, "China", which links to the ultimate energy of the universe and the original energy of the cycle of heaven and earth. Today, let's talk about why we are called China.
1. We were an empire with a name but no name
China, in nearly three thousand years of history, is not our country's name. China, the name of the country, carries the core of the wisdom of our Chinese civilization. China is a country of the Middle way, that is, a country of harmony between Yin and Yang and a country of people who adhere to the middle way. As long as the people do her, are gradually abide by the middle, keep the extraordinary wisdom. This is the true meaning of the name of "China", a country that knows the way of wisdom.
But when we start the history, we find that we started to take China as our country's name after the Revolution of 1911. The reason is very simple. It started from the Yin and Shang dynasties (the two characters "China" engraved on the archaeological relic "He Zun" have been dated back3000Early years), China, generally refers to the central vassal kingdom, directly ruled by the son of Heaven. It also refers to the capital of the Son of Heaven. Later, it was generally referred to as "Central Plains" by ethnic groups outside the region. In the Qing Dynasty, China was referred to as "inland". That is to say, "China" in the three thousand years of history, as a regional, cultural concept of the title, rather than as the name of the country. The reason is very simple, our thousands of years of dynasty, only the name of the state, no name. It was not until the Revolution of 1911 that the country was officially named "China".
Two, China, the wisdom from the country's name
Why are we called China? There are too many statements, generally concentrated on the "central", "central" such as some understanding.
In these interpretations, I have been asking myself: Were our ancestors so narrow? Is it that arrogant? Yes, if we cut up the history, we can indeed see, such as Qin Emperor Han Wu, Genghis Khan at the peak of the moon a little arrogant and arrogant. But our history, its thickness, is not a few once peak moon son of heaven can speak. Our ancestors have been telling us silently through their classics that the wisdom of thousands of years of Chinese civilization can not be dressed up by us, let alone fragmented.
As I began to understand some of the wisdom in the Book of Changes, the Huangdi Neijing, the Dedao Jing, and the Four Books and Five Classics, I began to suspect that our exploration and interpretation of the origins of Chinese civilization had been shallow and hasty.
It wasn't until one day in my 40s, when I realized that Buddhism, which originated in India, was almost exclusively rooted in China, and when I realized the Buddha's wisdom of abiding by the Middle Way, that I suddenly realized that our ancestors had already arranged all this...
One day, it suddenly dawned on me that Henan People's Daily verbal "Zhong" means the middle way and balance. It is the most intuitive expression of the Chinese nation's understanding of the ultimate wisdom of the universe. Located in the core of Central China, Henan has the word "Zhong" in its mouth, which means the truth of the balance of the world and the ultimate wisdom of the high dimension. But unfortunately, every day the "middle" hanging in the mouth of Henan compatriots, how many understand the wisdom of the balance of the "middle way", let the "middle way" wisdom patronizing their own life?
