THe Tenet and Spirit
Before playing Mahjong,
you must refine your character.
You should keep a serene character,
without being impetuous.
Neither be proud when you win,
nor be stingy when you lose.
Neither be happy when in a favorable situation,
nor be anxious when in adversity.
Do not change your voice
and expression because of emotion.
Keep a broad mind and be generous.
Moral character is the most important;
the best thing is to maintain
a gentle and cultivated
style in playing.
