ABSTRACT

Under the background of modernization and globalization, the influence of Buddhism in Asia is still profound. Master Fa Ding who is an eminent monk in contemporary Korea insists purly practising life that is naturalistic, his Buddhist literature enjoy a high reputation abroad. His prose of preach and comment expresses Buddhist essential ideas and reflects the drawbacks of modern civilization such as the mind clouded by material desires, ecocrisis and so on profoundly. The prose of pure practice expresses Buddhist aesthetic experience including gratitude, kindness, ashamedness, solitude and so on sincerely. The latter is of greater aesthetic value in the mass. Through the comparative study of Buddhist literature between Korea and China, we could find the prose of Master Fa Ding has a naturalistic style, particular and profound life experience, open-ended cultural horizon. Chinese contemporary Buddhist literature could draw lessons from Master Fa Ding.
