On 28 September, Google was not the only one to pay tribute to Confucius on his 2,566th birth anniversary.
The celebrations have become an occasion to unite and create harmony, as hundreds of members of Confucius’ legacy celebrate all over eastern Asia and around the globe, with festivals and special events across Confucius Institutes.
In China hundreds of people marched toward the Confucius Temple in Qufu, the home town of Confucius, where a ceremonial dance performance was held.
In Qufu about 1,800 students and residents recited quotes from the Analects – the most famous collection of sayings and ideas attributed to Confucius and his contemporaries.
