How To Save Today’s World From Chaos? 如何挽救今世之乱?

当今之世,必须认真提倡因果报应。

Nowadays, of [this] world, [there] must [be] earnest promoting [of moral education on the karmic law of] cause [and] effect, [with its rewards and] retribution.

教子固属要务,教女更要于教子。

Teaching [of] sons indeed constitutes [an] important duty, [but] teaching [of] daughters [is] even [more] important than teaching [of] sons.

以人之幼时,常在母边,母若贤,则儿女自然会贤。

With people when young, often often at [their] Mothers’ side, if [these] Mothers [are] virtuous, thus [will their] sons [and] daughters naturally be virtuous [too].

以熏陶化育于平时,习已成性,及长而受父教,则顺流而导,实为易易。

With [such] long-term nurturing in normal times, [with good] habits already becoming [their] nature, and [with] long[-term] receiving [of their] Fathers’ education [too, to] thus accord [with the] flow and [to] guide [them, this will] truly be very easy.

今世之乱至如此,皆无上二种之善教所致。

This age’s chaos [being] like this, [is] all without [the] above two kinds of good education as caused.
