        The status of our current world we should all agree is due to human MIND which are full of egoistic view which in it encompass the greed, hatred and ignorant. In the book of Mengzi, it is said that originally our Nature is good in its essence and pure, but due to the influences that come from our surrounding, our education system contaminated the mind and therefore generating so much trouble in this world.

       
The challenge is how can we make this world to be the world of peaceful and harmony between the sentient beings and the environment? We must start from ourselves, from each and every one of us. We should realize that our mind was contaminated from the wrong perception of knowledge that comes from outward. The same way apply to educate the mind, in this case will be using the principle of religious teaching to influence the way our contaminated mind think!

       
Thus, according to Khonghucu (Confucian religion), the aim of learning is to gain moral perfection as well as to bring peace and harmony to the world. Self-cultivation is the means by which peace and harmony can be attained in the world.

       
Kongzi attached great importance to the virtues of humaneness/benevolence (ren), righteousness (yi), wisdom (zhi), propriety (li), and courage (yong), mutual trust (xin), but believed that all these virtues should be firmly based on integrated with learning and study. I would like to quote another chapter from LunYu 17:8 Confucius said:

       
· To love humanness (ren) without loving learning is liable to foolishness.

      
· To love intelligence (zhi) without loving learning is liable to deviation from the right path.

      
· To love faithfulness /sincerity (xin) without loving learning is liable to harmful behavior.

      
· To love forthrightness/honesty (zhi) without loving learning is liable to intolerance.

      
· To love courage (yong) without loving learning is liable to insubordination.

      
· To love unbending strength (gang) without loving learning is liable to lead to indiscipline.
