These texts come in their original Chinese form with Hanyu Pinyin transcription above the characters used in the text, Hovering with the mouse over an unknown character or word will display the corresponding English meaning definitions. Optionally, you can also listen to these texts being read aloud in a clear, native-like Chinese Mandarin voice.

The texts are written in a form of Classical Chinese current at the time of their writing.
