Sarah Lind Position Paper #3 2/25/08 Disposing of Error By the time Buddhism was introduced to China, the country was already very old and classic with timeless traditions and a way of civilized society that worked for many of its people. When Buddhism entered China it was met with competitions from indigenous philosophical and religious systems that had the hearts of Chinese for years and years. The thoughts towards Buddhism were hindered on perceptions from the past ways and teachings known by most Chinese. I think that any new way of thought entering into a country will be accompanied with negative thought and skepticism as old ways move out to make room for the new. Before too long, Buddhism became a fashion to seek out and the religion intrigued China’s intellectuals. With an unbalanced acceptance of Buddhism, many criticized the religion. Mouzi attempted to answer these critics in a way I think captured most of the Chinese of his day. I think he used appropriate quotes, past data, and thoughtful insight as to why Buddhism is The Way.
