English Abstract

Mr. Zhao Puchu is one of the most important protectors and practitioners of modern Chinese Buddhism. After the Cultural Revolution, he served as the president of the Chinese Buddhist Association and the vice chairman of the CPPCC, and became a pivotal figure in the revival of Chinese Buddhism in the 1980s. The revival of Buddhism in the history of the country is inseparable from the two aspects of reconstructing the life of faith and revitalizing Buddhism. Since the 1980s, Zhao Puchu run round from the north to south of the country, and has worked hard to restore the famous local temples. He actively called for the initiative to hold new school of buddhism and select talents monks. What is even more rare is that Mr. Zhao has made great efforts to promote the professional study of Buddhism history, literature and ethics in the academic circles. He also actively invites scholars to come in and go out, and bring the academic research of New China Buddhism to the track of modern international scholarship. This kind of Buddhist revival method with equal emphasis on both academics and beliefs is not only valuable but also epoch-making in China in the 1980s; these actions of Mr. Zhao are also related to the late Ming and early Qing Dynasties (1573-1659) and the late Qing Dynasty to The Republic (1866-1945) The inner rationale of Buddhist revival is consistent. The narrator, Mr. Li Jiazhen, is an assistant to Mr. Zhao. By recalling what he saw and thoughts around Mr. Zhao, he showed the image of great Buddhism.
