Let me ask you a question first. Which dynasty do you think is the most remarkable dynasty in Chinese history? Was it the heyday of the Taiping, Guotai Min'an, the Tang Dynasty that attracted worldwide attention? Was it the Qing Dynasty, the last prosperous period of the Chinese Empire? No, the greatest dynasty in Chinese history was the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Periods.
During the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Periods, China and Buddhism were born. Ancient India and Western ancient Greece were in the same period. This period was called the Axial Age. It was the greatest period of ancient human beings. It was precisely because of the controversy of the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States Period. China is qualified to be called one of the four ancient civilizations.
The great gene destined for the Spring and Autumn Period was that people's thoughts were vigorously contested at that time.
