Confucianism is one of the three (3) major religions in contemporary China along with Buddhism and Taoism. Confucianism is based on the teachings/philosophies of the great Chinese philosopher Confucius (Kung Fu Tzu/ Kung the Scholar). Confucianism is actually an ideology of the values and ethics that a person must have in order to live peacefully here on Earth. Basic virtues of Confucianism are righteousness, propriety, wisdom, loyalty, the ruler-subject relationship, and the parent-child relationship. Most of the ideologies in China like Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism as well as the famous Chinese Philosophers Confucius, Lao Tzu, and Mencius were all under the reign of the Chou Dynasty. However, Confucianism was greatly popularized during the Han dynasty since it was ordered to be the official religion of China at that time which lasted for about 400 years or so.
