節葬下 - Simplicity in Funerals III

English translation: W. P. Mei [?] Library Resources
1 節葬下:
子墨子言曰:「仁者之為天下度也,孝子之為親度也。今孝子之為親度也,將柰何哉?曰:『親貧則從事乎富之,人民寡則從事乎眾之,眾亂則從事乎治之。』當其於此也,亦有力不足,財不贍,智不智,然後己矣。無敢舍餘力,隱謀遺利,而不為親為之者矣。若三務
1,孝子之為親度也,既若此矣。
Simplicity in Funerals III:...:
Mozi said: The magnanimous ruler takes care of the empire, in the same way as a filial son takes care of his parents. But how does the filial son take care of his parents? If the parents are poor he would enrich them; if the parents have few people (descendants) he would increase them; if the members (of the family) are in confusion he would put them in order. Of course, in doing this he might find his energy insufficient, his means limited, or his knowledge inadequate. But he dare not allow any energy, learning, or means unused to serve his parents. Such are the three interests of the filial son in taking care of his parents.

天志中 - Will of Heaven II

English translation: W. P. Mei [?] Library Resources
4 天志中:
且夫天子之有天下也,國君諸侯之有四境之內也。今國君諸侯之有四境之內也,夫豈欲其臣國萬民之相為不利哉?今若處大國則攻小國,處大家則亂小家,欲以此求賞譽,終不可得,誅罰必至矣。夫天之有天下也,將無已異此。今若處大國
1攻小國,處大都則伐小都,欲以此求福祿於天,福祿終不得,而禍祟必至矣。然有所不為天之所欲,而為天之所不欲,則夫天亦且不為人之所欲,而為人之所不欲矣。人之2所不欲者何也?曰病疾
3祟也。若已不為天之所欲,而為天之所不欲,是率天下之萬民以從事乎禍祟之中也。故古者聖王明知天鬼之所福,而辟天鬼之所憎,以求興天下之利,而除天下之害。是以天之為寒熱也節,四時調,陰陽雨露也時,五穀孰,六畜遂,疾災戾疫凶饑則不至。」是故子墨子曰:「今天下之君子,中實將欲遵
4利民,本察仁義之本,天意不可不慎也!
Will of Heaven II:
The rule of Heaven over the world is not unlike the rule of the feudal lord over the state. In ruling the state does the feudal lord desire his ministers and people to work for mutual disadvantage? If leading a large state one attacks small states, if leading a large house one molests small houses - if by doing this one seeks reward and commendation (from the feudal lord) he cannot obtain it. On the contrary, punishment will visit him. Now, the rule of Heaven over the world is not unlike this. If leading a large state one attacks small states, if leading a large house one molests small houses -- if by doing this one seeks reward and commendation (from Heaven) he cannot obtain it. On the contrary, punishment will visit him. When (man) does not do what Heaven desires, but does what Heaven abominates, Heaven will also not do what man desires but do what he abominates. What man abominates are disease and calamities. Therefore not to do what Heaven desires but do what it abominates is to lead the multitudes in the world to calamity. Therefore the ancient sage-kings studied what Heaven and the spirits would bless and avoided what they would curse in order to procure benefits for the world and avoid calamities. Thereupon, Heaven made heat and cold temperate, the four seasons harmonious, the Yin and Yang and rain and dew timely. The five grains are enabled to ripen and the six animals to mature. And disease, pestilence, and famine did not happen. Therefore Mozi said: If the gentlemen of the world really desire to follow the Dao and benefit the people they must be mindful of the principle that the will of Heaven is the origin of magnanimity and righteousness.
