In 1953, at one hundred and fourteen years of age, the Master began a two-week meditation session of the ninth day of the first lunar month at Yu Fwo (Jade Buddha Monastery). Upon its conclusion, the Hang Chou Buddhist Group sent Tu Wei to invite the Master to go to Hang Chou and take charge of a Dharma Assembly. He accepted, and stayed at Ching Tsz (Pure Kindness) Monastery, where several thousand people took refuge. Again the Master responded to a request by Dharma Master Miao Chen (Wonderful Truth), that he hold a Dharma Assembly. When it was over, the Master proceeded to Hu Ch'iu (Tiger Mountain), and bowed to the stupa of Patriarch Shao Lung. Seeing that it had been desecrated, he rebuilt it, and the stupa once again became a famous site.
The Gatha says:
When affairs in Hang Chou were completed, the Master went to Ku Su.
Conducting Dharma Assemblies one after another, Never stopping to rest.
At Hu Ch'iu he once again bowed to the
Stupa of Patriarch Shao Lung (Propagate and Glorify).
The stupa had been destroyed; he now rebuilt it to last for a thousand seasons.
