The Sanzi Jing T r g

Ed./Corp.: Louis E. Smogor Jr., Depauw Univ., IN, USA
URL: http://raptor.depauw.edu/sanzijing/
Language: English, Chinese.

Self description: "The San Zi Jing (Three Character Classic), written in
the 13th century, is not one of the traditional six Confucian classics, but
rather is a distillation of the essentials of Confucian thought expressed
in a way suitable for teaching young children.  Until the latter part of
this century, it served as a child's first bit of formal education at
home.  It is written in couplets of three characters (syllables) for easy
memorization.  One might call it a Confucian catechism."

Description: This site provides the original Chinese text (as graphics)
along side with a word by word and a meaningful translation into English
(translations by L. Smogor). A very short introduction and a few links
precede the text versions.

Louis Smogor is Prof. of Mathematics at Depauw University, Indiana, USA.

Resource suggested by Louis E. Smogor Jr., Depauw Univ., IN, USA.
