  • What is the mysterious force of Buddhism? You could make neither head nor tail of it. You may choose to ignore it, but its existence is a solid fact. You may attempt to pinpoint its meaning, yet no interpretation through the ages is persuasive enough. Just as the poem inscribed on a stele in the Donglin Temple on Mount Lushan puts it: No road is longer than those leading to the world of mortals, nor will the green mountains remain idle for ever. Let me ask the passers-by: Is there anyone who understands the good of life in the mountains? Because those who really understand the beauty of life in the mountains are few and far between, the overwhelming majority of people are just content with their lot in the mundane world. However, if there is no good in the mountain life at all, then how do you account for the presence in the mountains of so many ancient temples and monasteries that are seemingly forever reverberating with a liturgy of Buddhist incantations and the music of bells and drums. The beauty about all this, however, is not supposed to be seen, touched or heard. Buddhism is, indeed, a puzzle. ZHANG WANG
