According to the recognition of filial piety in the Confucian scriptures, the beginning of filial piety is to perfect the body inherited from the parents, and the end of filial piety is to honor the parents through ipsinyangmyung. It can be said that the thought on the essence of filial piety since Confucius lies in the realization of sincerity according to the action of the true mind. In the process of filial piety and filial behavior, it is necessary to pay attention to the combination of ancient Indian thought and Confucian thought since the era of Wei and Jin Dynasties.
Hermeneutical fluctuations began to arise that the filial piety of the body preservation type and the filial piety of the body damage type/sacrificial type were incompatible. In the case of the Chosun Dynasty, filial piety of the body damage type/sacrificial type became popular, and the state pro- moted it, and there were more and more people here and there using their parents to deceive people and steal their honor. In today’s Korean society, it can be said that those who are blind to success are those who have de- viated from the original path of filial piety. If we do not show proper awareness and response to the beginning and end of filial piety, it cannot be said that we are walking the path of true filial piety.
