Excerpt (Translated by Lâm Vĩnh-Thế):

From time immemorial, the ancestors of the Viet race have laid the foundations for the Viet Philosophy: The Yin-Yang Philosophy with the Way-of-Life in Harmony and Peace, identifying the human being as the central-point of the universe, the focal point of earth and heaven, the link of the Three-Element Relationship: Heaven-Earth-Man. The Way-of-Life assembles all kinds of relationships into one cause, one way.
