Forest of Steles
Pavilion of the Classic of Filial Piety

This is the pavilion built to house the Classic of Filial Piety, the Xiao Jing 孝经 ( Xiào​ Jīng​). The Xiao Jing was written by a student of Confucius, 曾參 (Zēng​ Shēn), who became known as 曾子 (Zēngzǐ). The is an honorific given to great teachers and philosophers. The Confucian school of thought was spread by disciples who wrote of their conversations with Confucius, Kongzi 孔子 (Kǒngzǐ), and compiled his teachings. These were passed down with commentaries through the generations.
