Buddhism is a religion with faith as its root, liberation as its goal, education as its core and culture as its linking tie. On the one hand, the spread and communication of Buddhist culture in China have left a great cultural heritage for humankind. Buddhist cultural and artistic creations in such fields as architecture, sculpture, casting, painting, music, printing, theater, poetry and novel, have exerted profound and extensive influence on Chinese culture. On the other hand, Chinese Buddhism has had a long-standing influence on later generations with its basic spirit of „do no evils, practice all good deeds“ and the eternal themes of compassion, wisdom, equality and perfect harmony.
