Pujiang Zheng Yimeng Code
Pujiang Zheng Yimen standard excerpts.
Pujiang "Yimen" called "the first in Jiangnan" by Ming Taizu Zhu Yuanzhang "The Zheng family has lived together for more than 360 years since the Jianyan reign of the Southern Song Dynasty and the 15th generation of the Song, Yuan, and Ming dynasties. At its peak, more than 3,000 people ate a "pot" meal. When the six generations lived together, the Zheng family lived together for more than 360 years. There were fifty-eight articles in the "Standard". After that, the descendants of the 7th generation wrote 70 articles of "Houlu", and the descendants of the 8th generation wrote more than 50 articles of "Continuation". By the early Ming Dynasty, a generation of famous Confucianists Song Lian helped Zheng's descendants to merge "Guide", "Post Record" and "Continued Record" into a total of 160Eighteen articles of "Zheng's Code". This "Code of Zheng Family" is a magic weapon for the Zheng family’s stewardship. It transforms the Confucian concept of "filial piety" into a highly operable code of conduct like a mathematical formula, involving housekeeping management, children’s education, Weddings and funerals, life and study, and life and other aspects are the most complete family management standards in the world.
"Zheng's Code" is a representative work of traditional Chinese family rules and family rules, which has had a huge impact on the development of Chinese family rules and family rules. Zhu Yuanzhang valued the family rules and family rules of Zheng family filial piety management, farming and reading-based family rules, and introduced a lot of "Zheng Family Rules" into the laws of the Ming Dynasty. The tens of thousands of clan rules and family precepts established by various clans and families in later generations have more or less directly and indirectly absorbed nourishment from the "Zheng Family Rules." And its content, from today's point of view, there are many dross that should be discarded, but there are also many that are worth inheriting.
The good family style extends to the world, loyalty, filial piety, and filial piety.

Zheng surname is a typical multi-ethnic and multi-origin surname The surname Zheng originated from the surname Ji. When the king of Zhou Xuan, Jiyou was the ancestor of the Zheng state, namely Zheng Huangong. After Han defeated Zheng, he was building a city on the northwest bank of Xingze, hence the name Xingyang. Because Xingyang is Zheng The place where the family originated and flourished. Later, more prominent families of the Zheng family came from Xingyang, so since ancient times, there has been a saying that "the Zheng family in Xingyang came out of Xingyang, and the Zheng family in Xingyang was all over the world". The Zheng family in Yulin also came from Xingyang.
There are many talents of the Zheng family, and there is no end to the history. In the 25th history, there are 443 people who are single independent biography. Among them are politicians, military strategists, and celebrities in science and culture. As the saying goes: Huan Gonghua King Zheng of County, Xingyang of Wugong Xinzheng County; Zheng Guoxiu three hundred miles in the canal, Zheng Xuan commented on the scriptures to study Xinjiang; Zheng Qian’s poems and paintings are called Sanjue, Zheng GuPartridge Ming Quartet; Zheng Qiao Tongzhi two hundred volumes, thinking of Xiao Molan and scattered fragrance; the four masters of Guangzu Yuanqu, successfully closing the stage with immense power; Banqiao Dianthus show great strength, rare silly words; the view should be in accordance with the time. In the prosperous age, the warning words awakened the virtuous; the chieftain said solemnly in offering wine, and acting solemnly prevails. Among them, the Tang Dynasty was the glorious period of the Zheng family in Xingyang. Six champions, eight horses, and eleven prime ministers emerged. The history is called "the upper hall and half court Zheng, the lower hall full of wats".
The Zheng clan of Yulin has stretched for hundreds of years. On the basis of promoting the demeanor of the ancestors, he is loyal and filial piety, and vigorously revives the family.
The heirloom of the Zheng Family Code
A person has a personality, and a country has a national character. In the long-term continuation of a family, it will also form its own unique atmosphere. Such an invisible fashion habit and intangible spiritual outlook exist in the daily life of a specific family in a hidden form, and the family members’ every gestureFoot, all reflect such a habit. This is the family style. Many distinguished families have passed down their fine family traditions in the form of couplets, hoping that they can be passed on to future generations. The common hall couplet of the Zheng clan, "Blessed by the Song, Yuan and Ming Dynasties, loyal, filial and righteous for generations" is to enlighten Hou Kun with the achievements of the ancestors and encourage the younger generations to work hard.
"Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties bestowed orders, loyalty, filial piety and righteousness will last forever." This is the "first family in the south of the Yangtze River" in Pujiang County, Zhejiang Province-the Zheng Yimen family. This family, they held high the banner of filial piety, and studied the heirlooms. They lived together for more than 300 years in the three dynasties of Song, Yuan and Ming. They were called "the first family in the south of the Yangtze River" by Ming Taizu Zhu Yuanzhang.
In the "Book of Rites·University", it says: self-cultivation and then family harmony, family harmony and state governance, state governance and world peace. "The first in the south of the Yangtze River" in Pujiang County, Zhejiang Province-The story of the 15th generation of the Zheng family living together and eating together for more than 300 years is in ChinaThe concrete manifestation of the Chinese people’s inheritance of "rituals", "benevolence" and "filial piety" for thousands of years: Zheng Huai's destruction of homes saved thousands of victims' lives, and Zheng Huai's residence was renamed "Ren Yili" by the people; Zheng Qi The digging well for the mother in the scorching heat created the "Xiaogan Spring"... The Zheng family received the Song, Yuan, and Ming dynasties. After several generations of hard work, they wrote a very complete family rule-"The Zheng Family Code" ", and with the guidance of Liu Guan, Wu Lai, Song Lian and other Confucian masters, it has become a very authoritative family motto.
This "Rules of the Zheng Family" is the magic weapon of the Zheng family's stewardship. It transforms the Confucian concept of "filial piety" into a highly operable behavioral norm like a mathematical formula. Housekeeping, education for children and grandchildren, weddings and funerals, life and learning, and life and other aspects, it can be called the world's most complete family management standards. For hundreds of years, the Zheng clan members have followed this family motto, not forgetting their neighbors when they are wealthy, and built righteous villages and graves;The time is two sleeves and the breeze; advocating filial piety for the son of man... These strict norms have led the Zheng clan to out of glory from generation to generation.
The Zheng Family Code repeatedly emphasized the importance of self-cultivation and morality, which attracted the attention of the people. Other families also have restrictions on their children’s political activities, but the "Zheng Family Rules" has made stricter regulations on children’s participation in political activities, and specifically pointed out that this is done to prevent serious harm to the family in this regard. For example, the three provisions of the children as officials, "Descendants... who are officials, must be in public and diligent politics, not corrupt, and respect the family law.... It is not advisable to rely on noble self-respect, and arrogant clan. "On the basis of not filial piety" (Article 86), "If the descendants have any official position, ... don’t take anything wrong with the people. The court shall not be private to his wife and children... the offender will come to him” (Article 87), “If the descendants go to official positions, there will be stolen money.Those who hear it will be cut off from the "Spectrum" when they are born, and they are not allowed to enter the ancestral hall when they die. If you are falsely accused, you don’t stick to this” (Article 88). It’s very clear that being an official is to be loyal to the country, and you must not corrupt your family, let alone fall into a small circle of official positions and be affected by official struggles.
This kind of rigorous "ethical ethics" guarantees that the Zheng family’s descendants will stay clean and have a safe career. According to the literature, since the Song Dynasty, a total of 173 members of the Zheng family have been appointed officials, the highest official The Ministry of Etiquette is an official book, but no one was dismissed for corruption of ink. This cannot but be said to be a miracle in the Zheng family history.
The Zheng family members of Yulin also inherited this "morality" and served as an official. For the benefit of the party. For example, Zheng Yangfang, a descendant of the Zheng family in Yuzhou District, when he became the magistrate of Chenggong County, Yunnan Province, devoted himself to his duties, understood the people’s sentiments and cared about the sufferings of the people, often visited the countryside, and was loved by the people. The volume "Renewal of Famous Officials" contains:"Zheng Yangfang, a scholar of the Hanlin Academy, elected to grant county seals. Yihai took office in April in the first year of Guangxu, compassionate to the people, like family fathers and sons, and the law still smells of poetry and books. Zhangtian, registration, licensing, and expropriation If you are in your spare time, students in daily classes will be given detailed corrections. The people in the city are booming, so there are many people who show up. It is like one day in six years. If you report illness, the people will kneel and give away. The word of mouth says it will not forget." Bobai County Bo Zheng Tingzheng in Guihua Village, Baizhen, served as the official post of Qianqingchang in Zhejiang Province and also managed the affairs of Xixingchang. During the period, he was a clean official, meticulous, and meticulous in his work. The outline was clear, the advantages were eliminated, the salt affairs were rectified, and the finance was new. Won the praise of the boss. After returning to his hometown after the expiration of his term of office, he used his remaining limited assets to teach his relatives and friends, and then advocated the establishment of schools, established an osmanthus school, established the school motto of "respect for teachers, respect for work, dedicated to work, and cultivate talents." Zheng Tingzheng works for the people and solves problems. It has been spread as a good story, and people praised it.
Loyalty and Filial PietyFamily Voices
From the content of "Zheng's Norms", "loyalty", "filial piety" and "righteousness" based on Confucian cultural traditions are the core of this family rule. Zheng Yi, the first advocate of cohabitation by Zheng Yimen, is a famous filial son. According to "Song History" records, Zheng Qi's father, Zheng Zhao, was wronged and sentenced to death. Zheng Qi went to Shushu County Guard, please take her place. The county guard felt it and found out the grievances. Zheng Qi's mother, Zhang, was bedridden with wind spasms for a long time. Zheng Qi took care of her mother in every possible way for thirty years without letting go. Zheng Yimen's spirit of "righteousness" has also been extended from within the clan to outside the clan. This is the various righteous deeds of putting "accumulating goodness" into practice. As early as in the Jingkang reign of the Northern Song Dynasty (1126-1127), many hungry people were displaced due to natural and man-made disasters. Zheng Huai, the ancestor of Zheng Qi, sold more than 1,000 acres of land to help the poor, which led to a fall in his family. Later, people called his place of residence "Ren Yili". From the Yuan Dynasty to the first year (1335-1340), the people were hungry, Zheng DezhangOpen a warehouse and eat together with the village, and live a lot. When Zheng Qin presided over the housekeeping in the late Yuan Dynasty, he created various charitable facilities, such as "Supplementary Millet, Cold Clothes, Treasure for Ren, Valley of Free Profits, House of Poverty, and Path of Filial Piety" to help the poor. . The so-called "profit-free valley" means pre-purchasing 500 shi grains and storing them in the warehouse every year when the grain price is cheap in the autumn harvest. When the grain price rises, the grain is sold to the poor at the original price.
