Abstract:

The complex interaction between Daoism and Buddhism in medieval China is often described by recourse to the term “Buddho-Daoist.” Then during the Sui and Tang eras, both religions came to serve imperial purposes and had vast temple networks established throughout the country. By far the greatest connections between Buddhism and Daoism are to be found in the areas of philosophy and cosmology. The interaction between Buddhism and Daoism led to the emergence of new forms or methods of religious practice, with mutual influences traveling in both directions. This interaction is not, strictly speaking, a form of “syncretism,” which implies that “two hitherto distinct religions, cosmologies, rituals, or practices, become mixed together and that if circumstances were changed, the mixture would naturally separate.”
