The Story of Feng Jing NO.14 the Death of Feng Jing 11-04-19

There is a legend about Feng Jing’s decease. Feng, who had long been tortured by typhoid fever, suddenly ceased respiration one day. His family was so grieved that they wailed around him. To everyone’s astonishment, he suddenly opened his eyes and came to life again! He said he had a dream just now and started to quell their doubts: “In my dream, I went to Wutai Mountain and saw my previous dwelling in the monastery remained. Then I was told that time had not come for me to pay the debt of the nature. So, there I am.” Feng wrote an article to record this afterwards and asked his sons not to write it down on his epitaph.


Feng Jing ended his day in Song Zhe Shaosheng first year (1094), aged 74. Emperor Zhezong of Song once reached his mansion house personally to attend his funeral and posthumously conferred Situ, an important government post in feudal China, with a title Wenjian to him. Song Ying Zhiping second year (1065), Peng Ruli, a number one scholar, wrote an epitaph for him.

Feng was buried in Mi County, the east-central province of Henan. In April, 1979, his grave was discovered at Quliang Commune, Wuhumiao Village. In 1981, The Henan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and a local cultural centre excavated and cleared the site, collecting a large sum of valuable porcelains and four box of epigraphs of historic significance, each box of which had been placed on a sealing stone. His coffin chamber, which is made of stone, consists of four single rooms facing east and west and was arranged from north to south, burying his later two wives (two sisters of the Fu), himself and his first wife, according to those epigraphs. Treasures, including Ruyao porcelains, pottery, stone implements, accessories made of animal bones and copper coins of Earlier Song Dynasty (960-1127), were interred with him in his grave.


Feng had always engraved in his mind those days learning in Qianshan Mountain, which lies in the city of Xianning, thus he named his own book Qianshan Mountain. Regrettably, this piece of work did not survive.
