Xuansha, Great Master Zongyi, of Mt. Xuansha, Fu Region, China, of the Saha World, used to be called Shibei. His family name was Xie. When he was a householder, he loved fishing and boating on the Nantai River, doing as fishermen do. One day at the beginning of the Xiantong Era [860—873] a golden scaled fish came to him without his seeking it, and he suddenly had the urge to leave the dusty world.
