MengMu 孟母为何三迁

孟母为何三迁
The story took place 3500 years ago in China.
Mencius was an itinerant Chinese philosopher, and one of the principal scholars of Confucianism.

Living close to a cemetery when he was a child, Mencius often staged the rites that he’d seen in funeral processions or burial services for amusement.  Mencius’s mother, MengMu, was distressed by this behavior and decided to relocate their home to a new environment.

邹国孟轲的母亲很了不起.人称孟母。
小时候他住在墓地附近,常把自己看到的送丧和埋葬的礼仪学来作为嬉戏.孟母说:“这里不是教养我儿子的地方.”


They moved next to a marketplace. However, MengMu soon discovered that her son took pleasure in imitating the peddlers’ hawking.

后来他们迁居街市,孟子便学起商贩做买卖的样子来.孟母说:“这里也不是教养我儿子的地方.”


 MengMu decided to move again. This time, they settled down near a school. Inspired by what he saw and heard, Mencius was naturally influenced by the courteous behavior of the teachers and students, and began to develop an interest in study.

Mencius was later to become one of the most influential scholars of Confucianism.

结果他们搬到学校旁边住,孟子耳濡目染,自然而然地学起学生礼让、读书的举止.孟母看在眼里,开心地说:“这才是我儿子应该住的地方呀!”
