     Chinese Han soil culture in the process of historical development, the continuous efforts to absorb foreign national nutrition, the findings derived from the continuously strengthen itself. History has proved that up to absorb foreign culture, the most extensive and influential than the Buddhist culture.
     Buddhist culture of the input, not just a Chinese Han-earth social life and ideas, as well as literature, music, art, etc., have brought fresh energy, while the Buddhist Tianzhu furniture, also came along the Han soil, enriched Han varieties of furniture to facilitate the development of the Han way of furniture. Especially for China for thousands of years the way of reform and evolution of living played a great role in promoting.
     Han Buddhism soil of time, all say it is the "incoming Zhou said," "Spring and Autumn Incoming said," "Incoming Qin said," and so on, are due to inaccuracies and insufficient evidence, is believing. Only the Eastern Han Yong Ping ten years (AD 67 years) introduced that has been recognized by historians. In the "si shi er zhang jing Preface" recorded: "Xi Han Dynasty emperor, Takaaki night dream God people, physical gold, top with sunlight, is front of the hall, went so far as the happy, very Yue's. Tomorrow asked courtiers, this why God An? have learned person FU Yi reads: 'Chen Wen Tianzhu are Enlightened, Hao Yue Buddha, light cite fly is useless to their spirits.' Then the Wu, Ji Qian envoy Zhang Qian (Note: It is not Han Wudi When Zhang Qian), Habayashi Zhonglang Qiang QIN Jing, Ph.D. disciples WANG Zun, etc. 12 people, Tai On branch country, taking Buddhist scriptures written 42 chapters in 14 Shihan, the board rose pagoda. So Tao France Flow cloth, Li Buddhist temples everywhere, much of human V, formerly Chenqie were innumerable. "(" Buddhist common sense ", Shenyang Publishing House, 1991 edition, p. 45) contains the history of the history of the Han Emperor Ming of the resulting demand removal method, back to the "si shi er zhang jing " and the construction of Turkey's first temple - the White Horse Temple.

     Buddhist culture in China, Han's development is undergoing a long times. From the Eastern Han Dynasty Buddhism into the Han, to the countless generations of eight hundred years, the Buddhist culture in the Han-depth development of eight hundred years, the Buddhist culture and the Han culture, and by mutual conflict, exclusion to penetrate each other to absorb, and even mutual integration of The eight hundred years. In this eight hundred years, the formation of Buddhism in the Han territories, two climax. These two high tide, for the development of China's furniture to write a historic chapter.

     The first peak is from the Eastern Han Dynasty to the Northern and Southern Dynasties of the four hundred years. During this period coincides with the social unrest, years of war, the people in the Si and not the pain, the general state of mind to find relief, but relief the suffering of the birth of the Buddhist idea of the suffering of sentient beings in a war among points out a way out . Therefore, Buddhism Jin Southern and Northern Dynasties period, has been fully developed. The traditional scriptures translated seek law activities, is still in the ascendant, to construct a temple and the cave is dug civil Daxing. Qin Jian-yuan the previous two years (AD 366) excavated after the Dunhuang Grottoes, one after another during the Northern Wei also dug a Yungang Grottoes and Longmen Grottoes. Southern temples everywhere, as the Tang Dynasty poet Du Mu said: "Southern Dynasties 480 Temple, Rain in the number of pavilions."

     Excavated caves, and to construct a temple of Buddhist activities to promote the development of Buddhist art, cave statues, frescoes, temple statues, murals should from time to time gave birth to. The statues and murals of this period, are outside the powder from the book, characters, clothing, utensils, etc. are all extra-territorial style. At this time a large number of high-Tianzhu Buddhist-type furniture, but also followed them into the Han territories, which the lives of the Han customs, especially sat on the floor of the living arrangement is a great impact on the high-type Buddhist Desks into the Han , the ancient Chinese began to falter sat hungry and personal way, with the high-type pedal Desks come sit in a way which naturally into the Han way of life.

     The second highlight of the late Northern and Southern Dynasties countless generations of four hundred years. The end of this period due to the war, Sui unification, especially in the early Tang Dynasty, "Zhenguan of governance", social and political stability, economic prosperity, national policies and opening up, people's livelihood stability, and prosperity of society showed up situation. Most of the Tang Dynasty Buddhist emperor, so at this time has been widespread belief in Buddhism, Buddhist culture has been widely spread, Buddhism Buddhist bring high-type furniture, in the secular civil society have been widely welcomed and used.

     Our murals can be seen from the Tang Dynasty, this time a Buddhist country, in the prosperous Hui-Tang empire, but also get wings to fly vibration opportunities, they detached from the Tianzhu Buddhist country's elegant and simple, but covered with magnificent colorful coat, which came from the Buddha-off furniture - chairs, stools, pier, etc., Datang very creative hands of the furniture division has developed into a dignified and vigorous style, decorated magnificently diverse forms of. Countless generations not only of China's feudal era heyday, is also the Buddhist culture and Chinese culture combined blending will heyday, is a Buddhist country rooted in the Chinese settled in and made a brilliant period of development and creation.
