Confucian moral cultivation aims to develop the entity of the mind, which Mencius and Wang Yangming termed as “Liang Zhi.” Liang Shu-Ming, the first-generation scholar of Contemporary Neo-Confucianism, called this entity of the mind “awareness,” emphasizing the knowledge of its cultivation. However, previous studies of Liang have not addressed “awareness;” therefore, the current study elaborates on this gap in the literature.
Throughout his life, Liang was influenced by both Confucianism and Buddhism; thus, it is appropriate to compare the Buddhist concept of “Bodhicitta” with Liang’s “awareness.” This comparison should enhance the clarity of “awareness.”

Keywords:awareness, Liang Zhi, Liang Shu-Ming, bodhicitta, Contemporary Neo-Confucianism
