According to tradition, Confucius was born in 551 B.C., in theSpring and Autumn Period, at the beginning of theHundred Schools of Thoughtphilosophical movement.Confucius was born in or near the city of Qufu(
曲阜
), in the ChineseState of Lu(
) (now part of  Shandong Province).Early accounts say that he was born into a poor but noble family that had fallen on hard times.[8]Confucius was from a warrior family. His father Shulianghe (
), compiled some four centuries later, states that Confucius was born as a result of a yehe (
野合
), or "illicit union".[9]His father died when Confucius was three years old,[10]and he was brought up in poverty by his mother.His social ascendancy linked him to the growing class of shì(
), a class whose status lay between thatof the oldnobilityand the common people,that comprised men who sought social positions onthe basis of talents and skills, rather than heredity.As a child, Confucius was said to have enjoyed puttingritual vaseson the sacrifice table.[9] He married a young girl named Qi Guan (
亓官
) at 19 and she gave birth to their first child, Kong Li, (
) when he was 20.Confucius is reported to have worked as a shepherd, cowherd, clerk, and a book-keeper.[11] His mother died when Confucius was 23, and he entered three years of mourning for the loss of hismother.Confucius is said to have risen to the position of Justice Minister (
大司寇
) in Lu at the age of 53.[12]According to theRecords of the Grand Historian,the neighboring state of Qi (
)was worried that Luwas becoming too powerful.Qi decided to sabotage Lu's reforms by sending 100 good horses and 80 beautiful dancing girls to theDuke of Lu.The Duke indulged himself in pleasure and did not attend to official duties for three days.Confucius was deeply disappointed and resolved to leave Lu and seek better opportunities,yet to leave at once would expose the misbehavior of the Duke and therefore bring public humiliation tothe ruler Confucius was serving,so Confucius waited for the Duke to make a lesser mistake.Soon after, the Duke neglected to send to Confucius a portion of the sacrificial meat that was his dueaccording to custom,and Confucius seized this pretext to leave both his post and the state of Lu.[9][13]Although Confucianism is often followed in a religious manner by the Chinese, arguments continue over whether it is a religion.Confucianism discusses elements of theafterlifeand views concerning tian (Heaven), but it is relatively unconcerned with some spiritual matters often considered essential to religiousthought, such as the nature of thesoul.
