The Landscape-in-Movement of Yuan Hongdao 袁宏道 (1568-1610): A Vision Inspired by the Buddhist Phenomenology of the Consciousness Only School (Vijñaptimātra)

Abstract : This article shows how taking into account the adherence of the famous writer of the late Ming, Yuan Hongdao 袁宏道 (1568-1610), to the Buddhist phenomenological school of Consciousness Only, which made a comeback in his day, is necessary for understanding the particularity of his writings. Based on a stylistic analysis of a number of his landscape poems and comparing it to Buddhist concepts and their metaphorical translations, it shows how this philosophical inspiration led him to a poetic practice whose characteristics can be clearly distinguished from those of literary writings on landscape inspired by the Buddhist school of Emptiness. It thus explores how Yuan Hongdao put into practice the approach of the Consciousness Only school not only in the use of images specific to this school but also in a subtle play on language that translates a vision of landscape in constant transformation, a reflection of the conditional production of phenomena.
