BUDDHISM  IN  CHINA

Buddhism is an important foreign influence that has had a significant impact on the lives of the Chinese people. Buddhism in China is both a philosophy and a religion. It has shaped our language, our food, our arts including our sculpture and has directly inspired the characteristics of the pagoda.

It was introduced to China in the first Christian century, its influence rose steadily throughout the Northern Wei and Chin dynasties. During the Sung Dynasty the influence grew under the influence of a new Confucianism school. Confucians had delved deep into Buddhism and came back to Confucianism with a new perspective. Buddhism did not convert these scholars, but it changed the tenor of Confucianism itself.  Confucianism was mainly a philosophy of moral conduct, but Buddhism possessed a logical method. Buddhism declares a futility of the world and offers a refuge from the pains and vicissitudes of this earthly life. Apart from the negative aspect which is a protest against life, there is an aspect of Buddhism which is similar to evangelical influences, the one that promotes general kindness among the common people. The Buddhist religion allows for an emotional outlet for the Chinese people. The most vivid and direct influence that Buddhism exercises over the believers is through the doctrine of transmigration.  Buddhism has had and continues to have a direct influence on the lives of the Chinese people.
