Starting with comparison between cores of Chinese and Western culture, Professor Peng Lin interpreted the essence and importance of the core of Chinese culture “ritual”. During the interaction section, Professor Peng demonstrated noble demeanor through his behaviors and expressions. He pointed out the phenomena where rituals are missing, emphasized the importance of personality and patriotism education, and encouraged students to become noble ones with an upright body and soul. In the end, Professor Peng patiently answered students’ questions and analyzed the dialectical relationship between obeying rituals and being free, which won students’ warm applause.
