The traditional Chinese moral classic Dizigui was written by a scholar more than 300 years ago and deemed a classic textbook on manners and etiquette. Its three-character verses are understandable and trip off the tongue.
To carry forward excellent traditional culture and regularize behaviors, HOdo compiled HOdo Dizigui, with 96 sentences, or 288 Chinese characters, in three-character verses.
