‘Despite the evident barriers and different frontiers that all existing religions obviously managed to fabricate within our daily lives, it will always be inevitable to notice that we, all … have the same God.’

This was a saying that regardless of it being placed in defiance to be written in any religious context, still have survived lingering in the ideas within of different minds, anonymously both being passed down,  and is regenerated as if this concept- long before our own creation, have already occupied a space within our system.

And here goes the interesting part, do you know that almost 99.9% of all ‘conscious’ humans would ‘accept’ the absoluteness about that thought? Accept in a way that maybe, they would have a  further glimpse of ‘meditating’ the truth and essence behind it, but then eventually, continue life as how they have already been living it. But along the littlest of percentage that have been left, there stood the existence of this well respected and known Buddhist, Master Jing Hui who, with all the determination and perseverance to be pursuit, have rewritten the boundaries of labels that religion claims to uphold by breaking down the great walls that separate Buddhist ideology and modern living.

Although Master Jing Hui’s death have already passed for over three years, all his legacies that have been a remark in his apprentices and the followers of Buddhism’ own lives,  still have and do, continually breathes.

Master Jing Hui’s life as to be remembered:

Born in the year 1933, Chan Master Jing Hui way back, like all the other student of Buddhism, have been anointed at Guangdong province on the temple of Yun Men, under the guidance of Great Master Xu Yun as a Chan monk. Being able to live for twenty decades, he has witnessed clamorous refinement that China have gone through

All by Master Jing Hui’s exceptional educational attainment, acknowledged experiences, and high standing within the Chinese Buddhist community, he possesses the abbotship of two temples located at Hubei province, which are named the Fourth Patriarch’s and the Jade Spring Temple.

Master Jinghui as to of aiming his objectives, can’t be walked over by any sort of boundaries and even knowing that he’d be bumping myriad sects of Buddhism which are all into uplifting various of limits, still haven’t given up that whether in despite of hindrances, have still tirelessly chose the chase for his revolutionary goal.

Master Jing Hui: Buddhism’s Significant Figure

On Master Jing Hui’s recent memorial, which was favored by highly regarded and well-known Chinese Buddhists that was held at People’s Hall of Shijiazhuang in Hebei, China- is where the footage about Master Jing Hui’s triumphs in life are centralized.

Master Ming on that footage have remembered Master Jinghui reminding him about the missed out fact and a mere misconception that, being a monk serves not an escapade from the works of the actual world, but rather, on an oppositional view, is an acceptance of a new set of obligations.

Even without all the rightful words to be ever given, as it the memorial have been attended by Buddhist scholars and Jinghui’s disciples from far ends of the world, it is considerably noticeable how Master Jing Hui, even up to his memorial, have exceptionally exceeded the value of being a significance in the history of Buddhism.

Zen for Daily Life

Excluding the great works such as the revival of Buddhism and restoration of numerous key temples, such as Bailin Temple in Zhaoxian County, one of the largest temples in China- Master Jinghui is also known, utmost, for the creation of Zen for daily life.

The teachings situated under Zen, as mentioned in the footage includes giving sincere appreciation to every blessing in life, stretching out a helping hand to others, and applying a calm, cool and collected attitude with the right mindset upon every single matter in life. A philosophy that aims to enlighten and fundamentally take off all worries one may be struggling upon.

Zen, or Chan, is a school of Buddhism that tends to promote good and beautiful things all linked in chase of  transcendence and serenity where it did openly become a navigation of communication both for Buddhist followers and non-followers’ connection.

Zen for daily life preserves the cultural values of Buddhism yet, promotes cultural exchanges and communication towards Chinese people and people from other countries and regions, which have even reached all its way to Germany. Much more than a success for a two-decade teaching, to say.

With this religion practiced by 488 million of followers worldwide, covering just 7% to 8% of the world’s total population, we could still recognize how Buddhism and its teachings are truly a help whether for the least, as a daily inspirational kick- up to as a life-changing motivation.

Its impacts are very vivid that it would be surely testable if one would claim that he have no idea about what this religion is generally about. Philosophies are all around us, and Buddhism and its teachings are one of the main resources for those daily reminders that we could see almost everywhere. Buddhism’s various and widely accepted influences may not be fairly and properly sited back but it is a cliche to say that it was a ‘Buddhist’s say’. The truth about its effects is so loud yet, still in the sphere that signifies humility no matter what.

A loud bang in a gong is both caused by the right instrument and an effort to be given to a lot of perspectives, so do Buddhism and how it have succeeded. A sacrificial act for Buddhist leaders, who have chosen pursuance of religion over all the other thing that the world cares for- family, profession and money, all replaced by the wanting to attain the achievement that the Buddhism now roaringly upholds.

The survival of this religion is clearly a mark of thorough involvements of endurance, selflessness and sacrifices, which then Master Jing Hui would be one of the best examples. After being mistakenly accused, he still persevered and did not end up his spirit broken, rather have given up his best to show what his aim really is against the odds of facing the stabs of his own religion.

At the end of everything, it serves as a must to say that absolutely with no bias, Buddhism contains philosophies and wisdom that even an entire life cannot handle, handling out answers without laying down questions, and what just Master Jing Hui did, connecting the oppositional bridges of modern life with the Buddhist beliefs, definitely, got the ‘need to acknowledge Buddhism’s way of living’ rates, all doubled up.
