“Misanthropy” of Buddhism surpasses any mundane life rather than negative and physical disgust in the process of experiencing emptiness of everything in the world after the awakening of mundane matters. “Misanthropy” of Buddhism’s separation from mundane life can greatly symbolize a positive attitude toward life of Buddhism and constantly surpass own precious characteristic. In this sense, according to legend, Emperor Taizong of Tang Dynasty sighed, “Sanyana is what a great man will do while princes and generals are not easy to do.” if we simply confuse “Misanthropy” of Buddhism with taking things too hard and attempting suicide in mundane life, then “misanthropy” degree of practitioners or the degree of separating from mundane life should be a very important mark that measures martial arts of practitioners.
