As being invited by Venerable Miaoguo (1884–1952) of Yuanguang Temple at Zhongli, Venerable Cihang came from Singapore to Taiwan to organize “Buddhist College in Taiwan” on October, 1948. However, the college was dismissed after six months. He was in prison for more than one month. After being discharged from prison and before the end of the year, the social circumstance was unstable. The Venerable was homeless until he met Venerable Xuanguang (1903–1997) and Venerable Daxin (1989–1956) of the Chan Temple Jingxiu where the two masters allowed him to establish a Buddhist temple entitled Mile Neiyuan. After this, Venerable Cihang was gradually settled down. Around the spring of 1950, since Venerable Cihang cleared himself from a title of “emissary of mainland China” of which he was under suspicion, he was invited to give lectures and talks by many people. Before the Mile Neiyuan was established, Venerable Cihang was invited by Mr. Song Xiuzhen (1911–?), who was the director-general of a branch of Buddhist Association of Taiwan province, to give talks around Taiwan in August, 1950. One year after the establishment of the Mile Neiyuan, he was appointed by the government and promulgated the idea of rebels to mainland China and Russia as well as preaching Buddhism on rural areas with Ganzhu Waer (1914–1978) and other six people in September, 1951. Before the Mile Neiyuan was closed in September, 1952, the two great promulgations on Buddhism were greatly significant. This article will discuss about the “white terror” that Venerable Cihang encountered after the “Buddhist College of Taiwan,” which was organized by him, was dismissed. In addition, the article will discuss about the two promulgations on Buddhism around Taiwan in the spring of 1950 and the fall of 1951 after the establishment of the Mile Neiyuan at Xizhi.
