Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on development in the three other main centres of Buddhism of Jin territory: the community led by Dao’an 道安 at Xiangyang 襄陽 which flourished in the years 365379 AD, the less spectacular but also important contemporary centre at Jiangling 江陵 and the one at Mt. Lu 盧山 from its establishment in ca. 380 until the death of its founder, Huiyuan 慧遠. The most important fact concerning these centres is their northern origin. In order to understand the background of the beliefs and practices current in these centres we must consequently pay some attention to the development of Northern Buddhism in the third and early fourth century, at the risk of breaking up the unity of this chapter and of confusing the reader by forcing him to divide his attention.
