Astrological origins of Chinese dynastic ideology . Vistas in Astronomy, Vol. 39, Issue. 4. Despite the ambiguity of the term Heaven as a translation for Chinese tian sky; day; trascendent deity, and despite the non-Chinese theological baggage assodated with it, for practical reasons I am disinclined to attempt an idiosyncratic substitute for the well-established Heaven's Mandate.

The Mandate of Heaven (Tianming), also known as Heaven’s Mandate, was the divine source of authority and the .

The Mandate of Heaven (Tianming), also known as Heaven’s Mandate, was the divine source of authority and the right to rule of China’s. Look at the former peoples of ancient times, the Xia. Heaven guided, indulged, and cherished them, so that they would strive to understand what Heaven favors, but by this time they have let their Mandate fall to the ground. Now look at the Shang; Heaven guided them, stayed near them, nourished them, so that they would strive to comprehend what Heaven favors; but now they have let their Mandate fall to the ground.

The Mandate of Heaven is a Chinese political and religious doctrine used since ancient times to justify the rule of the King or Emperor of China

The Mandate of Heaven is a Chinese political and religious doctrine used since ancient times to justify the rule of the King or Emperor of China. If a ruler was overthrown, this was interpreted as an indication that the ruler was unworthy, and had lost the mandate.

The Mandate of Heaven created a justification system. The Mandate either said or implied three major things. 1) The right to rule is granted by the gods. This gave the ruler religious power. 2) The right to rule is only granted if the ruler cares about his people more than he cares about himself. This gave the ruler secular power, or power over the people, and the right to decide what is good for the people, because the ruler must care about the people, or the gods would remove him as ruler. 3) The right to rule is not limited to only one dynasty or family. A dynasty can be replaced.

Pankenier in this sense notes that the ancient Chinese preoc- cupation with the heavens was hardly unique. This in turn leads him to pay attention to non-sinological scholars (. My hope is that this book will show that archaeoastronomy with Chinese characteristics offers a promising approach to the study of profoundly impor- tant facets of ancient Chinese civilization.

The "Mandate of Heaven" is an ancient Chinese philosophical concept, which originated during the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 . The Mandate determines whether an emperor of China is sufficiently virtuous to rule. If he does not fulfill his obligations as emperor, then he loses the Mandate and thus, the right to be emperor.
