Lu regards goodness as innate in man, while his evil is acquired through circumstances and hides it.
If, a hundred thousand generations hence, sages were to appear, they would have this same Mind. If in the East, the West, the South, or the North, there were to appear sages, they too would have this same Mind. . . . Mind is only one Mind. The Mind of any given person, or of a sage a thousand generations ago, their Minds are all one like this. . . . All men have this Mind.
Mind is the same as the Law, World's governing Principle, Virtue, or Moral Order inherent in the Cosmic Order.
