After listening to Dharma Master Min Hsi expound the Dharma Flower Sutra, he spent several evenings speaking with the Venerable Master Ching, and bidding him farewell, took his leave. Descending the mountain, he passed through Hsueh Tou and arrived at Yo Ling Monastery, where he listened to an explanation of the Amitabha Sutra. The Master then crossed the ocean to visit P'u T'o Mountain, where he bowed to all of the knowledgeable advisors of the monasteries there. He spent New Year's at Fa Yu Temple.
