唐代禪宗巨匠懷海在百丈禪寺住持禪法二十年,撰修百丈清規而聲名大振,引來無數禪學之人,曾出現“三寺五廟四十八庵”之盛況。“百丈清規”的制定,推動了佛教職工禪宗的發展與興盛,奠定了百丈寺禪宗祖庭的地位,歷代皇帝對百丈寺都有敕封或敕建,這一切使百丈寺在中外佛教界享有盛名。



Zen master during the Tang Dynasty, Huai Hai, meditated in Baizhang Temple for two decades. He wrote and revised the monastic rules of Baizhang and gained considerable reputation. That attracted countless people who were interested in learning the way of Zen, thus creating a sensation. The formulation of "Monastic rules of Baizhang" promotes the development and rise of Zen Buddhism, establishing the founder status of Baizhang Temple in Zen Buddhism. Emperors of past dynasties had conferred titles or ordered the construction of Baizhang Temple. These make Baizhang Temple renowned to the Buddhist community in China and abroad.
