The Localization of Buddhism as a Source of Inspiration for the Localization of Marxism in China

Xiao Li-bin (College of Science and Technology, Guizhou University, Guiyang, Guizhou Prov. 550025)  
Zen Buddhism, the most successful mahayana school localized in China, experienced a gradual decline as it evolved from being "independent from" to "dependent on" Buddhist scriptures in the teaching and understanding of its religious truth. This fact reveals to us that the major method for developing Marxism in China should not be explanation but practice. In the process of Buddhism localization in China, the contention of the many Buddhist schools contributed to a boom of Buddhism. This gives us a clear message that we should, guided by Marxism in ideology, encourage the formation of different localized Marxist schools with Chinese characteristics, so as to simultaneously stimulate the theoretical initiative and practical vitality of the political and academic elite and the elite of the masses. Hui Neng, the founder of Zen Buddhism, stated that Buddha nature remains the same no matter where the believer is from, and respectfully, he referred to his audience as the well-knowledged. From this we can know that we should rely on the strength and initiative of the masses in order to localize Marxism in China. Finally, the multiple ways of Buddhism salvation tell us that to promote Marxism localization, we should accelerate social construction focusing on improving people’s livelihood, and providing our spiritual care for people on the basis of institutional care and material care.
