Confucius may once have been denounced by Chairman Mao for perpetuating feudal ideology, but the effort to integrate his teachings into society continues in Xi’an. Hundreds of diners bowed to a portrait of Confucius before lining up to receive free lunch in a restaurant yesterday, reported NetEase
The restaurant is a charitable organization that provides vegetarian food for needy diners from 11:30 to 12: 00 every day.
It was funded by philanthropists and enterprisers with the mission of inculcating in people a sense of belonging to society.
