There was a long-term social unrest in the Nan Gan region, a border area of Jiangxi, Guangdong, and Fujian provinces, till Wang Yangming was appointed the governor of the region. To suppress the unrest and secure the social stability forever in the region, Wang Yangming implemented a series of stabilizing measures such as "repressing rebellion""advocating morality" and "promoting school education". There was a close correspondence between those measures and his academic thought:"Intuitive knowledge exists originally""purifying conscience" and "Self-examination", which respectively acted as precondition, important education content, and method of the stabilizing measures.
