Tanxu becomes the student of Master Dixian, one of the pre-eminent monks of the period. Studying in Dixian’s seminary in Ningbo, Tanxu learns not only the essentials of becoming a monk, but also perceives the deep linguistic and cultural differences that separate China’s regions, particularly north from south. Tanxu travels with Dixian to Beijing, where he makes many of the important contacts that will enable him to promote his nationalist agenda in the years to come. Back in Ningbo, Tanxu is frustrated by the isolation of the seminary and leaves, against Dixian’s wishes, to spread Buddhism in North China
