The Story of the Benevolent Art of Healing

Huqingyutang was located at the foot of Mount Wu, which was referred to by the Hangzhou locals as the “Buddhist Mount”, for plenty of the temples thereon, which attracted an impressively large number of the pilgrims who went up the mount for worships in the temples all year round. When Huqingyutang was opened, Hu Xueyan wore an official hat decorated with bird’s feathers on his head, an official chain of pearls on his chest and an official suit, solemnly entertaining in person the clients. One day, a group of the pilgrims went down from Mount Wu and they all appeared to be the ordinary peasants in shabby clothes and speaking with a Huzhou accent. One of them fainted away in the shrine somehow, and the others carried him into Huqingyutang Drugstore. When Hu Xueyan heard of this, he hurried to the drugstore, and not only ordered to rescue the faint people, but also gave everyone a packet of drug for acute diseases. During this period, the pilgrims talked that Huzhou area was a rich place originally, however in recent years, the masses had no means to live because of the war, and there was serious pestilence. Hu Xueyan sighed on hearing this.

On their leaving, Hu Xueyan sent each one of the pilgrims one bottle of the pellets against acute communicable diseases and a large bag of the drugs against acute diseases and asked them to convey the drugs to those patients who couldn’t afford the medical expense. When the pilgrims bid farewell, Hu XUeyan decided instantly to dispatch his clerks to the transportation hubs such as the wharfs etc. to grant free of charge the drugs against the acute diseases to the ordinary people for three years. Manager Yu Xiuchu said smiling “that is the benevolent art of healing”, while the clerks were quite puzzled over Boss Hu’s generosity.
