The Great Wisdom Reading Club

  • Goal: To make the traditional Chinese culture widely known
  • Location: Irvine CA, USA
  • Founded: 2005
  • Members: from all works of life
  • Books: the Chinese classics, such as  the Four Books, "Analects, Mencius, Doctrine of the Mean, Great Learning," Daodejing (Tao Te Ching), Zhuangzi, and  The Sixth Patriarch's Sutra
 
Features of The Club
  • Lectures: A group of three lecturers lead each meeting. One explains the classic texts in plain and easy understood Chinese. The other two crossexam the meanings of the text with contents from other books
  • When a disagreement occurs: discussions, friendly debates, more and deeper cross examinations
  • Example: (Representations of the mystery, Chapter 25 Dao De Jing)  
    • ... Therefore the Dao is great; Heaven is great; Earth is great; and the (sage) king is also great. In the universe there are four that are great, and the (sage) king is one of them. (Man takes his law from the Earth; the Earth takes its law from Heaven; Heaven takes its law from the Dao. The law of the Dao is its being what it is.)
  • How can the king (a human) be great? Shouldn't a human be rather small, comparing to the other three? Because of the "mind" or "soul,"  humans are often considered as the most evolved in all beings. The "mind" would be the part that can achieve the greatness, by cultivating Dao.
