[Event Announcement] Mutual Influence of Huayen School and Yijing 《華嚴思想與易經交涉》 by Professor Qiugao Xing (Jul.30, 2016)

佛教在東漢初年傳入中國後,早期的譯經多採用格義方式,被稱為“格義佛教”.而被用來作為格義資源的,除了最常見的老莊思想外,易學也是其中一種重 要的資源.三國時康僧會即用《易》中“積善之家,必有餘慶”的觀念來解說佛教的善惡報應觀念.此後的支遁、慧遠等善說易,以易說佛,成為中國佛教僧人解說 佛經的一種方式.唐代華嚴思想家和實踐者李通玄(635-730)和華嚴四祖澄觀(738-839),都嘗試結合《易》來理解《華嚴經》,將易學應用於對 華嚴思想的理解中.李通玄的易與華嚴的結合,有“方山易”之說.澄觀則有比較清醒的華嚴宗立塲,强調“借語用之”. Date: 1:30 - 3:30pm, Saturday, 30 July 2016 Venue: Universal Buddhist Temple 世界佛教會, 525 E. 49th Avenue, Vancouver BC It's a free event, please call UBT at 604-325-6912 to register.
