Introduction to I-Kuan Tao


The fundamental belief of I-Kuan Tao is to inherit and promote Traditional Chinese culture based on the philosophy of Confucianism. Also by the principles of Tao “to venerate Heaven and Earth; to revere the divine beings; to be patriotic and responsible; to be virtuous and courteous; to honor the parents; … to transform hearts into goodness and to hope for the world in Great Unity”. The root of I-Kuan Tao can be traced since 1644 when the 9th Patriarch Master Huang De-Hui founded “Xian-Tian Tao” and later in 1877 the 15th Patriarch Master Wang Jue-Yi advocated the understanding of the “ONE” that penetrates three different realms (Wu-Ji: the supreme heavenly world, Tai-Ji: the spiritual heavenly world, and Huang-Ji: the material world): the path through three different realms – I-Kuan Tao. In 1886, the 16th Patriarch Master Liu Qing-Xu formally announced the name of “I-Kuan Tao”. They were followed by the striving devotions of the 17th Patriarch Master Lu Zhong-Yi, and the 18th Patriarch Master Zhang Tian-Ran and Master Sun Hui-Ming. Until today, I-Kuan Tao is propagating globally in five continents and more than eighty countries. In 1988, the Republic of China in Taiwan I-Kuan Tao Headquarter was established and later followed by United States, Japan and Thailand … more than fourteen countries. In 1996, the World I-Kuan Tao Headquarter was finally established in the United States. The basis of I-Kuan Tao propagation is in Confucianism plus the applications in education, enlightenment, community work, and philanthropy as well as further expansion in helping others in need, promoting harmony in society, and uniting the world in peace and eternity.
