How did Wendi use both Confucianism and Buddhism to make a strong reunited China? How did he use each?
Wendi Reunified China:
During his rule, Wendi did many things to make the Chinese feel for unified. He restored old political traditions that reminded the Chinese of their glorious past,. For example, on taking the throne he accepted the traditional Chinese imperial gifts of red doors for his house and a red sash.
Wendi also reduced conflict by allowing people to follow their own belief systems. Although he was a Buddhist, he encouraged Daoist beliefs and practices. As you read earlier, Confucianism also enjoyed a rebirth during this time. For example, candidates for government jobs once again had to take a civil service examination. The examination carried out Confucius's belief that a government had to be built on the skill of its people.
