Zhihang also found that programs with moral teaching content is of benefit to everyone. He noted that this allows all those who pursue fame and personal interests to learn how to let go of their attachments and to look inward and to follow the course of nature. He felt that Shen Yun’s performance is not something temporary, but a show that is deeply rooted in a person’s heart. He thought that it presented the cultural essence of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism to the audience.
