The Logical Evolution of Zen's Mind Theory:From Huinengon to Master Daoyi
MA Jun;School of Philosophy,Renmin University of China;
The mind theoryis the core part of Zen Buddhism thought,however,after hundreds years of development,its internal logic and liberation practice has a fundamental change. In summary,this evolutionary process has three important turning points: master Huinengon's mind theory,his disciples' development,and Song Dynasty's development which highlights the trend of integration of Confucianism and Buddhism. From the mind theory logic,this change can be seemed as an evolution from "find one's true self"to"find true self in life",in terms of philosophy,from the"reality nature theory"to"universal nature theory".
