Chan Debate’s Worldwide Influence

发布日期:2018-02-23   字体大小:   

Shaolin Temple has successfully held three Chan debate activities and gained the recognition of the multitude and the Buddhist circle. While the candidates debate on the stage, they are also learning and complementing one another’s thinking. It does not matter if the candidates are right or wrong. This activity has drawn the attention of the media. Every year we have been compiling the debate materials and have published a series of Chan debate books. It has received the recognition of the Southern Buddhism and Japanese Buddhism and leaders of the State Administration of Religious Affairs encourage us to promote Chan debate worldwide. Shaolin Chan inquiry activity has become a convention of Shaolin Temple and will be continuously observed, just like the tradition of Chan Qi (Chan seven, a series of seven sessions of meditation practices) and precept transmission ceremony.
