Peace is our common goal. People with conscience work toward its achievement and it is, of course, a duty for all religious people. Confucianism is a humanitarian philosophy. Hence, the ultimate concern of Confucianism is happiness for all people in the present human world. Confucian disciples seek to implement in this world the Great Dao (Way) and thereby transform it into the Great Harmony or datong. In this datong, the world belongs to all. This is what Confucius taught.
