The existence of wall dilemma in the revival of contemporary Chinese Buddhism

The revival of Buddhism China contemporary "Renaissance wall" dilemma of Buddhism are the "wall" Dilemma (source: information), the China Buddhism is in the revival of critical point ready. Ready, China refers to the rapid social change in recent thirty years and has become increasingly integrated into the world civilization, in the process of changing China social transformation, people have burst of Buddhism religious needs. It is still in the critical point of revival, which means the social demand for Buddhism, and the formation of a huge tension with the existing institutional barriers. This wall leads to the orthodox Buddhist dilemma, a serious shortage of supply, people are inclined to the belief needs a foreign religion, and even lead to flooding and externalists cult religious non institutionalized. Today, more than 7 billion of the world’s population, more than 86% of people believe in religion, but only about 6% of Buddhism, far below the Christian (33%) and Islam (22%). In the 30 years of reform and opening up, China’s fastest growing today is not Buddhism, but protestantism. A large number of Buddhist and present incense phenomenon, be regarded as a religion only belongs to the folk belief level. In the three world religions, Buddhism, which was first established, is in a weak position in today’s religious territory This has to cause us to ponder. The Buddhist bitter "wall" for a long time! Mr. John Chiang, the scenic high ticket, especially to question Temple charges, is A bystander is always clear-minded. The China Buddhist fence locked, in the face of Christianity and Buddhism in Hong Kong "situation, in order to make the enemy approached the walls" in the Buddhist development pattern of equality and justice, removal of visible and invisible walls, at the right time. In response to Mr. John Chiang’s question, in August 2010, the Buddhist community and the cultural and academic circles in Donglin Temple held a forum on the "temple and attractions tickets". At the meeting, the author pointed out: "to set up the wall of the temple to collect tickets, not only for economic benefits, mainly in ideology, there is still discrimination against buddhism. We have to distinguish between the two walls: one should be established to protect the purity of Buddhism, the sanctity of the wall; one is to break through the limits of the wall to promote Buddhism, the interests of the public and society." The first meaning of the wall: to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the Buddhist community. Dignified silence wall, distinguish the sacred world and the secular world. Through the "barrier" in Buddhism, the nature of the terrain mountains, water, or by the monks to live, practice, practice and other religious activities, designate specific areas for themselves, to ensure that no lack of morality, to engage in normal practice activities. "The wind may enter, the rain may enter, the king’s soldiers must not enter!" In eighteenth Century the German Emperor William I of Potsdam in the construction of the palace, do not violate the property right of farmer mills, today China temple will become trampled fish! The second meaning of the wall: the institutional obstacles of the partition of buddhism. The religious activity is spread, weakness in the world’s religions of Buddhism in the territory is organized and socialized, it must be based on the public. Religious activities defined in the narrow wall of this temple, in the design of religion management system, is a failure. Chinese Buddhism does not have a church that is closely integrated with the community, such as christianity.相关的主题文章:
