Liao-Fan’s Four Lessons

Key Question posed by the book of Liaofan’s Four Lessons

Can your avert your destined fate?

The experience and real-life story of a Ming dynasty scholar who lived between 1550-1622 will lead us to reveal this possibility. The information provided in this handout is helpful to the students in acquiring a clearer understanding of the key teachings in Liao-Fan’s Four Lessons.

In the sixteenth century China, Mr. Liao-Fan Yuan wrote Liao-Fan’s Four Lessons with the hope that it would teach his son, Tian-Qi Yuan, on how to understand the true face of destiny, recognize good deeds and bad deeds, correct one’s own faults and practise good and kind deeds. It also provided living proof of the benefits from practicing good deeds and cultivating virtue and humility. In relating his own experience in changing destiny, Mr. Liao-Fan Yuan was an embodiment of his teachings.

There are four lessons in this book. The first lesson shows how to create destiny. The second lesson explains the ways to reform. The third reveals the ways to cultivate goodness. And the fourth discloses the benefits of the virtue of humility.

There is much to learn about creating destiny, including principles and methods, all of which are contained within this book. Small in size, its impact can be far-reaching.
