Japanese No. 3: 仁義 (じんぎ jingi) Japanese Soul

 
imagest.jpg(*ゝω・*)ノ Hello again♪ ☆・゚:*:゚
I wonder if some of you from other countries have heard the Japanese word, 仁義(じんぎ) known as jingi in Japanese?
Though 仁義 is also used to represent the moral code of the Japanese Mafia, it's use should primarily be considered as representing the Japanese mind/psyche as a whole.

It means ” honesty", " sincerity" and "loyalty", values that might be representative of the inner soul driving the average Japanese person's nature. This nature is especially exhibited by elderly people in all situations, whether they be in a private, business or other context.

仁と義とは儒教道徳(じゅきょうどうとく)の根本理念(きほんりねん)です。
Jin and Gi come from the fundamental principles of the Confucian ethic.
I think I can say that it is one of the most important Japanese attributes we have had since ancient times.

In more depth, Jingi means "to pay respect", implying the following.
仁(jin) and 義(gi) can be translated as humanity and justice.
It also connotes 義理(giri) meaning duty in English.

It must be the real Japanese soul, I don't know about the recent young generation here though.

Actually, some Japanese have far deeper meanings which might be very/too difficult to express in English or other languages.
