Wang Wei, so called poet of Buddha, Maestro of poem, painting and music, turned to be a true believer of Buddha since his middle age. All these sense and talent are reflected in this famous River and Mountain Poetry, a poem with a painter’s eye, a musician’s ear and a heart of Zen.

This poem reflected the daily life in his Wangchuan villa(辋川别墅). His famous poetry collection Wangchuan(辋川集) was wrote here.

终南别业
王维

中岁颇好道,
晚家南山陲。
兴来每独往,
胜事空自知。

行到水穷处,
坐看云起时。
偶然值林叟,
谈笑无还期。

王维,号摩诘居士, 诗画双绝,史称诗佛。
