Standing on the high ground of China's five thousand years’ civilization——Ji Wenqiao, the general secretary of Communist party committee of Jiangsu College of Nursing was invited to attend the “Taishan Scholars” Forum: Chinese Traditional Holism Science View and the 4th National Natural Science Academic Symposium and made an opening speech at the Conference.
On August 17th, Ji Wenqiao, the general secretary of Communist party committee of Jiangsu College of Nursing, was invited to attend the "Taishan Scholars" Forum held in the hometown of Confucius, Qufu, Shandong: the Chinese traditional holistic science concept and the 4th National Natural Science Academic Symposium and delivered a speech. Liu Qingzhu, a member of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Xin Jie, the Vice President and member of the Standing Committee of the Party Committee of Qufu Normal University, and Yu Youbin, the Party Secretary of the Chinese Society of Dialectics of Nature, attended the meeting and delivered speeches. The opening ceremony was hosted by Ma Shiyuan, Dean of the Chinese Classics School of Qufu Normal University. More than 200 experts and scholars from the Chinese People's University, Nanjing University, Wuhan University, Shandong University, Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, etc., all over the country, attended the conference and discussed on the topic of Chinese traditional holistic science view and its contemporary value.
Ji took a vivid and philosophical interpretation of the holistic and systematic nature of Chinese classics and the integration of Chinese classics and traditional medicine with the theme of “The Qiankun bay” standing in the five thousand years of Chinese civilization. He pointed out that if we regard the 5,000-year-old civilization of our Chinese nation as a magnificent and turbulent river like the mother river the Yellow River, then Qufu where the forum was located, was like the Qiankun Bay in which she bid farewell to the Loess Plateau in Qinjin--a gorgeous turn between the canyons, the mysterious and beautiful Bay. He emphasized that as educators of colleges, shouldering the sacred mission of accumulating, creating and inheriting culture, should actively respond to the party's call: to be "a faithful inheritor and promoter of Chinese excellent traditional culture." He called for the researchers of natural Chinese classics to devote to their studies represented by the excellent traditional culture, and work hard for the healthy Chinese era. He also introduced the “Tianyixing” medical education brand and proposed that the scholars should jointly build the “Tianyixing” medical education brand with the direction of “Traditional Chinese Medicine and Natural Chinese Studies”.
Ji’s wonderful speech was well received by all participants with hot response and many photo-taking. Many experts said that the speech was thoughtful, connotative and innovative. The National Natural Science Seminar is the highest level, largest and most influential academic conference in the field. It is an important academic platform for the study of natural Chinese studies at home and abroad which provides a new path of its cross-border, multi-disciplinary, multi-level and multi-dimensional development.

(August 17, 2019)
If we regard the 5,000-year-old civilization of our Chinese nation as a magnificent and turbulent river like the mother river the Yellow River, then Qufu where the forum was located, was like the Qiankun Bay in which she bid farewell to the Loess Plateau in Qinjin--a gorgeous turn between the canyons, the mysterious and beautiful Bay.
In the Eastern Zhou Dynasty, on the occasion of the rendezvous of the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period, on the "Qiankun Bay", which symbolizes the "500-year-old ceremony" of the Chinese civilization, the "Faithful Hundreds of Schools" represented by the Great Confucius and Laozi staged a grand ceremony of the "General History Edition", which was inherited from the ancient Cheng Yu dynasty, integrated in the dynasties of Qin and Han, and inspired the dynasties of Song and Tang. It is the development of the Chinese nation and has stood on the highland of the history of mankind for two thousand years to show its magnificent culture to the world. The reason why the Chinese nation is great is due to the spirit passed down from generation to generation which was created by the sages with painstaking efforts on the cultural highland!
Today, the Chinese nation, as the only ancient civilization left of all mankind, is victorious under the leadership of the Communist Party of China after hundreds of years of catastrophe, which has confidence in the road, theory, system and culture. As educators of colleges, shouldering the sacred mission of accumulating, creating and inheriting culture, should actively respond to the Party's call: to be "a faithful inheritor and promoter of Chinese excellent traditional culture."
The traditional Chinese medicine which has guarded our nation for thousands of years, is accompanied with the 5,000-year-old splendid Chinese civilization. The holistic view of TCM everywhere is exactly what it is, As the man-based medicine, Chinese medicine practitioners and Western medicine practitioners who are known for their skills and techniques will surely move toward the "double repair" of Taoism. For this reason, it is our best choice to study Chinese culture, natural Chinese studies, and to develop the representative of excellent traditional culture.
Our Jiangsu College of Nursing is a provincial college with a full medical background. It is located in Huai'an, which has the reputation of “Tianyi Stars Hometown”. " Tianyi Stars, Falling Huaiyin", was a myth and legend since the Tang and Song Dynasties. In such a famous historical and cultural city, we have consistently advocated to create the "Tianyixing" medical education brand with conscience, responsibility and wisdom; we have insisted on educate students from political height, scientific scale, cultural and emotional aspects; we also actively promote the city brand-- "Huai Medical”brand hang on the spirit of fraternity and seeking spirit, Zhou Enlai's spirit of studying for the country to cultivate a new generation of "Tianyi Star" successors. We sincerely hope today's distinguished scholars and your colleagues, with the direction of "Traditional Chinese Medicine and Natural Chinese Studies", to help us build and share the "Tianyi star" medical education brand!
I hope that the descendants of the Heavenly Medical Star will join hands with all the like-minded people to study hard and work hard in the healthy Chinese era to practice and develop the TCM and Chinese Classics with the original aspiration!
 Note: Qiankun Bay is located at the border of Yonghe and Yanchuan counties in Shanxi and Shaanxi. It is a natural landscape formed by the ancient Yellow River in the Qinjin Gorge. The Yellow River is flowing through this, and its rotation is as high as 320 degrees. Its appearance is a natural Taiji figure, which is known as the first bay of the Yellow River in the world. Since ancient times, there have been many legends of Fuxi ancestors.
