Baoning Temple is the original places of Cao Cave, the south school of Buddhism. Since South Song Dynasty, Lingji and Cao Cave schools have been very popular, and they spread to Japan. In 1983, the Japanese adherents of Cao Cave school came to China, bringing the name list of the founders, head by Kuang Changzi to Baoning Temple. At that time, as Baoning Temple was surrounded by high woods and thorns, and the local people didn’t know that Japanese believed the dignitaries from Baoning Temple, the Japanese visiting delegation had to retune in vain. From Tang Dynasty to Yuan Dynasty, there were many believers coming to Baoning Temple to pray, which made it center where dignitaries from Nanyue Temple and Jiangxi Buddhism communicated with each other. Kuang Changzi, Faci Shishi, Fa Sunyong Monks were all dignitaries and their words and traces were all recorded in Buddhism books.
