The Rujia philosophy was a cohesive system of values developed by a class of thinkers who emerged in the Yobanjin city of Zhongshi. Embraced by anyone regardless of social status, it was particularly admired among tribal leaders. [1]

Tenets Edit

Rujia system encompassed eight central values which were considered a core part of Yobanjin cultural identity: [2]

  • Ren (Humaneness): each and every one of the Yobanjin was a human being.
  • Yi (Righteousness): to do goos was everyone's responsibility.
  • Li (Ritualism): all actions should follow proper rite and reason.
  • Zhi (Knowledge): everyone needed to know the world to properly live in it.
  • Xin (Integrity): lies were rejected as a stain one one's soul, and all Yobanjin should speak the truth.
  • Zhong (Loyalty): Yobanjin should dedicate to the tribe and its rightful ruler.
  • Xiao (Filial Piety): meaned respect for parental authority and proper behavior towards them.
  • Jie (Continence): proper self-restraint in all matters was required.
