Junjie WANG, Fang WANG


The integration of Buddhism and Confucianism put forward by Ouyang Jingwu is the combination of pure Buddhism and Confucianism with original consciousnessonly theory as the focus, distinguishing itself from the traditional concept of the integration of Buddhism represented by Zen and Confucianism with the basis of Neo-Confucianism in the Song and Ming Dynasty. In the meanwhile, the integration of Confucianism and Buddhism come up with by him has a distinctive feature that Confucianism serves as the Buddhism’s knowledge of complying with the needs of society. He strictly defines the content of Confucianism and Buddhism to academically discuss the blending of inner logic of Buddhism and Confucianism. He criticizes the sinicized Buddhism which serves Tiantai Sect, Huanyan Sect and Jingtu School of Buddhism as mainstream, simply the China Buddhism classics liken Mahayana, reconstructs the inner school; he criticizes the mainstream Confucianism which is based on Neo-Confucianism in Song and Ming Dynasty, and the Confucianism which eschews quietus and ontology, he also criticized the fledgling Confucianism, and reconstructs the Confucianism. And then, he advocated to take the “Three Wisdoms and three gradual steps” as the main method to blend Confucianism and Buddhism. His fusion of Confucianism and Buddhism has brought profound influence to intellectual and elite at that time, making important significance.
