The Practice of Filial Piety in Myanmar Society
- The Word "Filial Piety" is defined as supporting and serving one's parents. It is not only a moral virtue but also an ethical principle. In Myanmar society, the five responsibilities of sons and daughters are regarded as filial piety. These filial responsibilities are based on the principle of gratitude because these responsibilities are arisen from repaying the debt of gratitude to the parents, the great benefactors. This paper tries to present that filial piety can be regarded as the most fundamental ethical principle and it plays an important role in Myanmar society.
