When I address an elder,
I should not call him by his given name. This is in accord
with ancient Chinese etiquette.
When you are facing teachers and elders,
Don’t show off or try to look smart.
In front of an elder,
I will never show off.
If you meet an elder while walking,
Greet him or her with respect.
If I meet an elder I know on the street,
I will promptly clasp my hands and greet him with a bow.
If the elder does not address you,
Respectfully stand to one side.
If he does not speak to me,
I will step back and respectfully stand aside.
If an elder’s walking and you’re riding,
Stop and ask if he’s traveling far.
Should I be riding on a horse and spot an elder I know
walking, I will dismount and pay respect to the elder.
If I am riding in a carriage, I will stop, get out of the
carriage, and ask if I can give the elder a ride.
Respectfully wait till he’s passed you
Before you continue on in your car.
If I meet an elder passing by, I will stand aside and wait
I will not leave until the elder disappears from my sight.
When an elder person is standing,
The young ones should not take a seat,
When an elder is standing,
I will not sit.
But wait till the elder is seated,
And sit down when you are told.
After an elder sits down,
I sit only when I am told to do so.
Speak softly in front of your elders,
In a low voice that pleases the ear.
Before an elder,
I will peak softly.
But you are wrong if you’re speaking
So softly that no one can hear.
But if my voice is too low and hard to hear,
it is not appropriate.
Greet your elders promptly,
And take your leave slowly.
When meeting an elder, I will walk briskly towards him;
when leaving, I will not exit in haste.
Answer questions respectfully,
And don’t let your eyes dart around.
When answering a question,
I will look at the person who is asking me the question.
