2. Summary 1. Chinese religions' turn to innerworldliness from about the middle of the Tang dynasty; 2. The strong development of Chinese trade from the 16th century onwards. [p.(64)] The aim of his study is to examine the connections between these two phenomena [ ibid "Did the ethical concepts of the three religions of China Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism have a stimulating effect on the development of trade in the Ming and Qing dynasties?" [p. (55)] "Did the traditional religious ethic, before the intrusion of Western capitalism into China, have any influence on endogenous trade activities? If so: what were the concrete contents of this influence?" [p. 10] The way of posing the question is closely similar to that of Max Weber's study "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism" [ The third chapter is devoted to the demonstration that the conceptual developments uncovered in the preceding chapters resulted among Ming and Qing dynasty merchants in the formation of a professional ethic that was very close to the ideal-type of "innerworldly asceticism." In the following I will summarize the contents of the three chapters.

Chan Buddhism Meditation has been an integral part of Buddhism from the beginning. The Chan school of Buddhism begins with a Buddhist monk named Bodhidharma arriving in China in 520 AD. Bodhidharma belonged to the Lanka School that mainly concerned itself with the study of Mind, both its absolute nature, and its evolved nature. When the meditation school arrived in China, it had a strong foundation on the ancient Chinese religion, Daoism. But, not until the ninth century did the name Chan become adopted. Chan, like Daoism, exalted intuition over reason. The both are based on the idea that there is one underlying reality and is the final stage of spiritual freedom, which Daoism called the Dao and Chan Buddhism called Enlightenment. In Chan, Enlightenment about the nature of reality comes through meditation. The potential to achieve enlightenment is inherent in everyone but lies dormant because of ignorance. It is best awakened not by the aid of common religious observances: study, scriptures, ceremonies, or good deeds. Chan Buddhism later divided into two schools: Northern Chan and Southern Chan. The northern school was a short lived affair and insisted on a doctrine of gradual enlightenment. The southern school as the dominant held to a doctrine of instantaneous enlightenment. Chan flourished in China during the Tang and Song dynasties (960-1279), and its influences were strongly felt in Chinese literature and Chinese painting.

White Tara is associated with the use of the clairvoyant third eye which is shown on her forehead. She offers protection to beings who are crossing the ocean of existence. She is said to be white and radiant as a thousand full moons. She is often depicted as the consort of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion.
Buddhism was introduced into China in the reign of Han Ming (c. 50 AD). The emperor dreamed of a Golden Man in the West who flew into his palace. He sent emissaries from Loyang along the Silk Road and they met two Buddhist monks: Dharmaraksa and Matanga. The monks arrived carrying their manuscripts of the sutras (teachings of Buddha) and their religious articles on a white horse. The King built a temple to honor this and the temple was thus named:
The Five Buddhas Mandalas exist on the earth for each of the 5 Buddhas. One such mandala, the dwelling of the Buddha Manjushri, is in the northwest of China near the Kunlun Shan. His color is yellow. His tantric consort may be related to the cult of Li, prominent in the secret societies of The Yellow Turbans and The Temple of the Golden Flower. This theme of the sun goddess was probably exported to Japan and becomes the Shinto Sun Goddess, Amaterasu, a principal deity of Shinto

Chan Buddhism was foundet 1500 years ago at the Shaolin Temple by the patriarch Bodhidharma, who is also known as DaMo. The in the West more well known Japanese version of Zen Buddhism developed later out of Chinese Chan Buddhism. Chan is our life. Chan is our chi, our life force, and how we live our life. To live Chan simply means to increase our awareness and to live in the moment. As a result of this training we experience more energy and joy in our life.

3,000 Years of Chinese Philosophy: A Primer
Mon., Jan. 27-March 10, 7 p.m.
Early in the first millennium B.C., China developed a rich and thriving philosophical tradition. Confucianism, Daoism, and Chan (Zen) Buddhism originated there. Over time, these schools of thought have spread throughout the world, and have become an integral part of humanity's philosophical heritage. This six-week course provides an introduction to the breadth of the Chinese philosophical tradition, from Confucius to the end of the 20th century. Lectures examine the origins of Confucianism and Daoism in ancient China, the beginnings of Chan Buddhism, Neo-Confucian philosophers of the Song and Ming dynasties, and developments in Chinese philosophy during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Reviews Table of Contents Bernard Faure's previous works are well known as guides to some of the more elusive aspects of the Chinese tradition of Chan Buddhism and its outgrowth, Japanese Zen. Continuing his efforts to look at Chan/Zen with a full array of postmodernist critical techniques, Faure now probes the imaginaire, or mental universe, of the Buddhist Soto Zen master Keizan Jokin (1268-1325). Although Faure's new book may be read at one level as an intellectual biography, Keizan is portrayed here less as an original thinker than as a representative of his culture and an example of the paradoxes of the Soto school. The Chan/Zen doctrine that he avowed was allegedly reasonable and demythologizing, but he lived in a psychological world that was just as imbued with the marvelous as was that of his contemporary Dante Alighieri. Drawing on his own dreams to demonstrate that he possessed the magical authority that he felt to reside also in icons and relics, Keizan strove to use these "visions of power" to buttress his influence as a patriarch. To reveal the historical, institutional, ritual, and visionary elements in Keizan's life and thought and to compare these to Soto doctrine, Faure draws on largely neglected texts, particularly the

It used to be long lasting and close Buddhist culture exchanges among the ancient oriental countries. Zhi Kong, an Indian senior monk in the 14th century, was one of the outstanding figures in Buddhist history. As an outstanding missionary in the history of Buddhism exchanges among ancient India, Srilank, China, Koryo (DPR Korea and South Korea today), Zhi Kong has made great contributions to the spreading and exchanging of oriental Buddhism. As for exchanging and mixing traditional culture between Korea and China, it will be of great significance to research on Zhi Kong s achievement and influence on the spreading of Buddhism between the tow countries. In my opinion, Zhi Kong has made the following achievements: First, Zhi Kong mixed the Buddhism with individual culture of different nationalities, thus enriching the Buddhism as well as branding it with obvious nation and nationality characters. As an Indian senior monk, Zhi Kong The second, Zhi Kong emphasized on spreading Buddhism in the ethnic group areas in China and established a profound religious relationship with the groups.

Chinese Buddhism
Buddhism entered China a few centuries after the passing away of the Buddha, at a time when Confucianism and Taoism were the predominant religions in a country that was as a big as a continent and rivaled India in historical antiquity and cultural pluralism. In the early phases of its entry, Buddhism did not find many adherents in China. But by the 2nd Century AD, aided to some extent by the simplicity of its approach and some similarities with Taoism, it managed to gain a firm foothold and acquired a sizeable following. The arrival of many new Buddhist scholars from the Indian subcontinent and central Asia, like An Shih-Kao, a Parthinian monk, and Lokakshema, a Kushana monk from Central Asia gave an impetus to the new religion that had many attractive features besides an inbuilt organizational approach to the study and pursuit of religion. During the same period many Buddhist texts were translated from Pali and Sanskrit into Chinese. The collapse of Han dynasty around 220 AD, was followed by a period of confusion which continued to trouble Chinese society for the next 350 years. During this period Confucianism and Taoism gradually yielded place to Buddhism. The new Mongolian rulers of China from the Northern Wei dynasty and some rulers in the south like Emperor Wu found in Buddhism a great opportunity to demolish the old order and establish a new one. As a result by 6th Century AD, China was teaming with millions of Buddhist monks and thousands of monasteries.
