Taeim's prenatal educationby 주아나


 

 



Shin Saimdang, [a Korean artist and mother of the Korean Confucian scholar, Yulgok Lee], was nicknamed ‘Sa-im-dang’ after Taeim, which means to respectas a teacher because she wanted to resemble her.

Taeim is the name of the mother of King Moon from China’s Zhou Dynasty.

King Moon of the Zhou dynasty modeled himself after his mother, Taeim, showed virtues to his people and was an outstandingly remarkable king in China’s history.



Taeim is recorded to have been benevolent, strict, loyal, and merciful.
She was a virtuous, benevolent, and wise woman, so her prenatal education is written down [in Ancient History Book of China] as the foundation of education.  

The prenatal education she gave when she had King Moon in her womb is as follows.



‘My eyes have not seen the wicked light,
my ears have not heard lustful sounds,

and my mouth has not spoken arrogant words.


I did not lose my footing when standing,

I walked at a slow place,,

I did not sit when the seat wasn’t right,

I did not even eat meat when not correctly sliced,


I have not seen bad things with my eyes,

have not heard filthy words with my ears

and have not spoken wicked words with my mouth.’


Since this is how she gave birth to King Moon, he became so smart and wise that when Taeim taught something, he understood a hundred things from that one thing.


How could the prenatal education be only a story for a pregnant woman?

Evangelizing a person is also giving birth to the Lord’s life and

living a faith of life is also giving birth to a life called myself.


If we try harder to see more righteous things,

live more righteously,

and distant ourselves from bad things,

we will feel that precious life is not far from us.
