Establishing a pure land on earth is the core concern of Master Sheng Yen in promoting the modern innovation of Chinese Chan Buddhism, and this modern approach to the practice of Buddhists echoes the public role played by civic religions in civil society by Western scholars. This paper will start from the overall estimation of the concept of Pure Land on earth, and delve into the three important modern meanings of the revival of Chinese Chan Buddhism by Master Sheng Yen. First of all, in terms of the Buddhist modern innovative meaning of the pure land on earth, this paper would like to explore how Master Sheng Yen started from the four types of Buddhist pure land (including the pure land of mind, the pure land of other worlds, the pure land of heaven, and the pure land on earth), and further used "the pure land on earth" as an example of specific practical approach to promote the modernity of Buddhism. Secondly, in terms of the implication of the modern practice of civil society related to the Pure Land on earth, we will also explore how Master Sheng Yen engages in dialogue with the economic, political, social, cultural, ecological and other subfields of the modern world. Therefore, it could think further about the pure land on earth and implement the concrete connection of civil society. Third, in terms of the modern revitalization of Buddhism from establishing the Pure Land on Earth, this paper would also try to reveal how the Chinese Chan Buddhism focus on the environmental protection of the mind for promoting the Pure Land on Earth to take root in daily life. By exploring the modern characteristics of the revival of Chinese Chan Buddhism by Master Sheng Yen, this paper regards that the innovative practices of Dharma Drum Mountain as an important research case and could take it for deeply profound consideration on the topic of Buddhism and modernity.
