Mao Zedong — Notes and Writings Related to the Cult of Personality

      This page provides a list of links to specific instructions and commentary by Mao Zedong relating to the topic of struggling against the phenomenon of excessive praise of himself (“praising to the sky”) and of related aspects of the cult of personality during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. In most cases the overall topics discussed are different than that, and Mao’s comments on the excessive praise of himself and/or other leaders, are only secondary matters. The links here are to the original Chinese-language documents unless otherwise stated.
