Madame Chan Laiwa, Deputy Director of Committee of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Compatriots and Overseas Chinese of CPPCC, Curator of the China Red Sandalwood Museum met with Noritake Syuunan, Abbot of Lingyun Sub-temple, Myoshinji Temple, a branch of Rinzai Zen Buddhism who came to China to attend the National Memorial Ceremony, and his delegation in the China Red Sandalwood Museum on December 14, 2017 and enjoyed warm and friendly talks.

Madame Chan warmly welcomed old friend Noritake Syuunan and his delegation for coming again. She said, Abbot Noritake Syuunan was good friend of Chinese people and this time he attended the National Memorial Ceremony for Nanjing Massacre Victims with his delegation by releasing souls from purgatory and praying for peace between China and Japan, which was very touching and reflected friendly exchanges of two countries. As friendly Buddhist ambassador, he took great trouble to travel between China and Japan in recent years, making great contributions to strengthen and develop Sino-Japan Buddhist friendship and effectively promoting non-governmental exchanges.

Abbot Noritake Syuunan expressed thanks for Madame Chans warmly reception. He said China and Japan were close neighbors separated only by a narrow strip of water. Since acquaintance with Madame Chan five years ago in Beijing, they had forged deep friendship and he often recalled the grand scene of meeting in Japan. Although on a tight schedule to Beijing, he made a special trip to call on Madame Chan and felt very happy to see Madame Chan in good health. He invited Madame Chan to visit Myoshinji Temple in Japan in her spare time and wish her a long life and a successful career. At last, he would continue to carry out the work left by Buddhist Masters by devoting himself to promote China-Japan ties and deepen friendship of two peoples.
