Abstract

Since ancient times, Chinese products such as tea, silk, and porcelain on the "Silk Road" have been circulated and disseminated in various countries. In the vast Buddhist classics, it is also recorded that porcelain was widely used in Buddhist rituals and ceremonies. Since porcelain is regarded as an indispensable tool and offering for the four disciples of Buddhism to hold Buddhist activities or practice Buddhism, then in the spread of Buddhist thought and culture, these tools and offerings are inevitable. The "Silk Road" was widely spread, and it was also endowed with profound Buddhist cultural connotations.
