¡¡¡¡ Donglin Academy, built in Zhenghe primary era of Northern Song Dynasty (1111), was the place for Yang Shi, a well-known scholar at that time, to give lectures for quite a long time. In Wanli 32nd years (1604) in Ming Dynasty, Gu Xiancheng, Gao Panlong and other scholars suggested to rebuild the academy by donation, and in the period, they assemble a crowd and hold lectures so that there is praise saying ¡°For master scholars, Donglin takes the first place¡±. The famous couplet, ¡°the sounds of the winds, rain and reading all come into our ears and the affairs of the family, state and world all draw our attention¡±, written by Gu Xiancheng, is known at home and abroad and is the true portrayal of Donglin scholars studying, lecturing as well as worrying about the country.
