What is "Dream Interpretation by Zhou Gong"

The Duke of Zhou, surnamed Ji Mingdan, was the fourth son of King Wen of Zhou and the younger brother of King Wu. He was a famous politician in ancient my country. Because his fiefdom was in Zhou and his title was Shanggong, he was called Duke of Zhou. The Duke of Zhou assisted King Wu of Zhou to conquer King Zhou twice. After King Wu's death, the Duke of Zhou became regent and assisted King Wu's son in governing the world, but he never had the idea of ​​usurping power.

In order to strengthen the central dynasty's rule over the local areas, Duke Zhou summarized the experience of previous dynasties and formulated systems such as canonization, hunting patrols, pilgrimages, and tribute payments to maintain the patriarchal laws of monarchs and ministers and the rules and regulations of the upper and lower levels. The Duke of Zhou established the eldest son inheritance system. The inheritance of the throne must be based on blood ties. There are also a series of strict etiquette systems for monarchs and ministers, father and son, brothers, kinship, superiority and inferiority.

After being regent for 6 years, Zhou Gongdan returned to power and became king. His contribution to the feudal ethics system was admired by Confucian scholars. The social order proposed by Zhou Gong was exactly what Confucius pursued. Confucius frequently dreamed of the Duke of Zhou, and his words "I will no longer dream of the Duke of Zhou" were a metaphor for the loss of etiquette culture in the Zhou Dynasty. Later, Duke Zhou was directly linked to the dream by later generations, and the dream became "Dream of Duke Zhou". Therefore, the Duke of Zhou in the dream is the Duke of Zhou.
