Mr. Cui Lianzhong, a well-known Chinese scholar of ancient Indian history, in 20206Month27Day18Time45Fen died in Shenyang at the age of96Years old.

Mr. Cui 192412Month6Born in Lanxi County, Heilongjiang Province on the 2nd, he received a good education from an early age. Before liberation, he studied in Lanxi County Primary School, Harbin No.3 National Higher School, Manchuria Army Military Academy, Kuomintang Central Police Academy and Russian Department of Changchun University.1948-1952He studied in the History Department of Northeast Normal University in. Since the Northeast region where I lived since I was a child was an area influenced by Russian and Japanese forces, special attention was paid to the training of Russian and Japanese in school education. With the assimilation education carried out by the Japanese during the puppet Manchuria period, Mr Cui’s Japanese and Russian can reach the level of smooth communication.1955-1957In, Mr. Lin Zhichun cooperated with Soviet experts to set up a “world ancient history teacher training class”, and Mr. Cui became28One of the students who completed the “<Manu Code>The Caste System in Ancient India Seen “was written by an associate doctoral thesis on the topic of” The Caste System in Ancient India Seen “. During his further study, strict academic training laid a solid foundation for his later academic research.1952After graduating in, Mr Cui worked in the history department of Shenyang Normal University and Liaoning University successively until1990Retired in. After retirement, Mr Cui insisted on “retiring endlessly” and worked day and night to burn plasters and sundials to study the history of ancient India. He successively published academic monographs such as “From Buddha to Asoka”, “Sakyamuni-Life and Thought” and “Ancient Indian Civilization and China”. In addition, he also presided over the compilation of historical materials such as “Selected Historical Materials of Vedic Times and Nations Times in Ancient India” and “Selected Historical Materials of Ancient Indian Empire Times”. These monographs and historical materials are of great academic value to the study of ancient Indian history in China. Mr. Ji Xianlin once put forward on the editorial board of “Integration of Eastern Culture” that “it is necessary to write more high-level monographs like” From Buddha to Asoka “. While carrying out teaching and academic research, Mr. Cui presided over the compilation of the People’s Edition of “General History of the World”, which has become a long-term teaching material used by many universities.2015The People’s Publishing House published a revised edition in. In his later years, Mr. Cui participated in the compilation of “Chinese and Western Classical Dictionaries” and completed the writing of the South Asian part of the dictionary. In January this year, he entrusted the manuscript to the visiting young students. It is reported that the dictionary has a publication plan, but the publication plan has been delayed due to the epidemic. A few days before Xian went, Mr Cui also told his family to ask about the dictionary, but he finally failed to wait until the day when the manuscript was published.

June27On the 2nd, during lunch time, Mr Cui walked to the dining table with his wheelchair and had dinner with his family. After the meal, he told his family that his chest was stuffy, so he went back to the house to lie down and rest. Back in the bedroom, he took off his shoes, put them in order, went to bed, covered himself with a blanket, and took a nap as usual. No one expected that Mr. Wang would never wake up from this sleep. Two weeks ago, he had been sorting out his belongings, including professional books, Indian Buddhism and Chinese and foreign historical works, as well as a large Greek dictionary, all of which he wanted to read in his later years. Although some of my beloved books were donated to the History Department of Liaoning University many years ago in order to reduce the burden, the books left behind that need to be used at any time are full of two bookcases. Mr. Wang lived a very leisurely life in his last days, and finally flew to the west in his sleep. This may be the good result of his long-term study of Buddhist scriptures and silent recitation of Buddhist scriptures.
