[Explanation] The Confucian Memorial Ceremony on both sides of the Taiwan Strait (Fuzhou) was held in Fuzhou on October 16.

Through the cross-strait connection, the event was held at the Fuzhou Confucian Temple and Tainan Confucian Temple to make sacrifices to the Holy Master Confucius.

  [Explanation] The reporter saw that at the event, representatives of guests from both sides of the strait jointly served as sacrificial officials, and representatives of young students served as Le Li students.

There are three traditional offerings for sacrificial officials, including "first offering", "yaxian" and "final offering". At the same time, the branch officials will make "divided offerings" to Yanzi, Zengzi, Zisizi, and Mencius.

With ceremonies such as offering incense, offering silk, offering jue, etc.

  Under the influence of such Confucianism, our generations of Chinese people have also made our Chinese culture shine better and better. The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, cultural self-confidence is a very important connotation. Let us work together to carry forward us. With such precious spiritual food from our ancestors, I hope that our compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, especially young friends, can study our Confucianism more.

  [Explanation] Among the many priests, the reporter met Huang Boqin, a Taiwanese teacher who teaches at Sunshine College.

In 2017, Huang Boqin, with his ideals in scientific research, came to the mainland to develop with his wife Yao Jialing and taught at the same university.

Their two sons are also studying in Fuzhou, and a family of four has firmly rooted in the mainland.

  When I grew up in Taiwan, I participated in the Confucian Temple festival in Tainan. Today, I also participated in the Confucian Temple festival in Fuzhou, and then the two sides of the strait worship together. I think this is a very meaningful activity.

The cultural heritage of Confucian temples on both sides of the Taiwan Strait is inseparable because of the blood connection.

Then I have been teaching at a university in Fuzhou for four years, and I feel that these teachers respect the teacher and the morality, and I feel that the students respect the teacher and the morality during the teaching process.

  [Explanation] In the eyes of many guests, the colorful display of traditional etiquette vividly reflects the cultural heritage of the same roots in Fujian and Taiwan, and the roots of the same ancestry and ancestor.

  Everyone in the education and cultural circles on both sides of the Strait has always been very close to the desire and complex to promote Confucius culture and traditional Chinese culture. In the current situation of difficulties in exchanges, launching such an activity shows that Taiwan loves traditional Chinese culture and adheres to Chinese traditions. Culture, such feelings are still there, so I think this current activity is very meaningful.
