The Temple Of Guanyin Who Refuses To Leave Introduction

Introduction
The Temple Of Guanyin Who Refuses To Leave, is the oldest and most important temple in Putuoshan. It is small and by the sea, just below the much larger than the temple in the Purple Bamboo Forest (Zizhulin). It is decorated in carvings of the Japanese monk and his Guanyin statue and has an obviously patched stele of the Dont-leave story which was smashed by the Red Guards and later retrieved from the sea. It has recently been completly restored.

Highlights
In the year 916 AD, a Japanese monk called Hui Er was o­n a pilgrimage to China. After leaving another sacred mountain, Wutai, he boarded a ship for Japan with a newly acquired bronze statue of Guanyin. A strong wind blew up as the ship approached the island of Putuo, forcing the vessel to run aground against a reef. The winds intensified. Waves beat against the hull, and the crew feared the boat would be destroyed.As the storm intensified, Hui Er suddenly envisioned that the violent winds were a sign of Guanyin's unwillingness to leave China. He knelt before her image and prayed: "If my countrymen are not destined to see you, I will follow your direction and build a temple to you here.” Immediately the wind subsided. The sea became as calm as a lotus pond. The ship freed itself from the shoal and sailed close to shore, below the Cave of Tidal Sound. Disembarking with his statue, Hui Er encountered a fisherman who was marveling over the deliverance of the distressed ship. The fisherman offered his home as a shrine for the image of Guanyin. Through the years, the original statue has been replaced by many replications. An exquisite new shrine to Guanyin completed in 1998 attracts a steady flow of visitors.
