2003: China Government Officials Visit the Most Venerable Yi Cheng


Original Chinese Language Article: By Hui Hai Buddhist Resource Library (Xin Hua Net)

(Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

Translator’s Note: This even took place in 2003, but this article was not posted until 2009. Master Yi Cheng was a disciple of Master Xu Yun (1840-1959), and is considered a very eminent Ch’an Buddhist monk in his own right. Such is the respect within which he is held by the Communist government of China that he remains sitting whilst government officials stand in his presence. My English translation of his biography can be read at: http://wenshuchan-online.weebly.com/dharma-master-yi-cheng.html. ACW 13.4.15

On March 14, 2003, Vice-President Zeng Qing Hong and Vice Committee Chief Xu Jia Fu – as representatives of the Tenth Session of the National Political Consultative Conference (NPCC), visited the President of the China Buddhism Association – the most Venerable Yi Cheng.
