Résumé

This talk concerns the work of the prominent Korean lay-Buddhist and entrepreneur Yu Guanbin (1891–1933) in Shanghai during the mid-1920s and early-1930s. Yu collaborated with the Chinese Buddhist reformer Taixu (1890–1947) in order to promote a transnational Buddhist discourse called “The Buddha-ization Movement” (fohua yundong). Yu also acted as a bridge between Korean and Chinese Buddhism by undertaking the project of rebuilding an 11th-century Korean temple, Koryŏsa, in Hangzhou. In this talk, I examine how, due to the intersections and conflicts between national/transnational and religious/political visions, Yu’s engagement in these projects was a distinctive case of modern East Asian Buddhism.
