Eastern Philosophy: Confucian Ancestor Worship

Synopsis: Honor your elders. Especially those who brought you into the world. And honour those who brought them into the world and those who brought them into the world and so on… Confucious believed that it is within the family that individuals learn how to live well and become good members of the wider community. Narrated by Aidan Turner.
