This program will enter the “Compendium of Materia Medica”, a classic of medicine, and pay tribute to Li Shizhen as a representative by telling the moving story of how Li Shizhen was not afraid of medical difficulties, difficulties in writing and publishing, and after nearly 30 years of composing a masterpiece The will of the Chinese medical practitioners of “The body is like a boat against the current, and the heart is stronger than iron and stone”, inheriting the spirit of seeking truth and pragmatism in traditional Chinese science, caring about people’s livelihood, and pioneering and innovative.
Focus on Chinese medical classics, inherit and develop China Traditional scientific spirit
For thousands of years, our ancestors have been recording our stories and telling our history. Each classic book embodies their wisdom and hard work. The past three programs focused on “the ancestor of political books and the source of historical books”, “Shangshu”, “Encyclopedia of Chinese Crafts in the Seventeenth Century”, “Tiangong Kaiwu”, and China’s first general history of chronological biography “Shi Ji”. It extracts important ideas that have a profound impact on the culture of later generations, such as people-based thinking, agricultural-based thinking, scientific spirit, and factual record spirit.
In this program, “China in Classics” uses “Compendium of Materia Medica” as an incision to focus on Chinese medical classics. It is precisely the hope that the appeal and influence of literary works can be used to increase the public’s understanding of traditional Chinese medicine. A sense of identity and pride, together to inherit, develop, and utilize the precious wealth left to us by our ancestors.
Collection of Compendium of Materia Medica by Li Shizhen Before the Ming Dynasty, it was the first to use the outline system to classify medicines for the great achievements of Materia Medica, creating a precedent for the works of Materia Medica in the past. The book has 52 volumes and nearly 1.9 million words. It records 1892 kinds of medicines, with 11096 prescriptions, and 1109 drawings of medicines. British biologist Darwin has repeatedly quoted “Compendium of Materia Medica” and called it “An Encyclopedia of Ancient China”; in 1953, Li Shizhen’s portrait was inlaid in the newly completed school building of Moscow University in the Soviet Union, in the corridors of the auditorium and Li Shizhen also ranks among world-renowned scientists such as Newton, Copernicus, Madame Curie, and Darwin; in the “Memory of the World” published by UNESCO in May 2011, “Compendium of Materia Medica” and “The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic” They are also included, and they are also the only two Chinese medical classics.
Associate researcher of the Chinese Academy of History, Ming History Research Xie Yang, the deputy director of the office, said on the program that Li Shizhen emphasized that “the doctor is the most valuable thing”, that is, there must be a scientific spirit of seeking truth from facts, seeking truth from facts and being pragmatic. According to Zheng Jinsheng, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and the Institute of Chinese Medical History and Literature, the Compendium of Materia Medica records the history of the use and development of materials by the Chinese nation. Although it now appears that the Compendium of Materia Medica has some limitations, its historical value is unnecessary. Doubtful. As Tong Xiaolin, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a scientist in TCM, said: “‘The book of medicine under the world, the whole world will be cultivated together, and the generations will be forever new.’ The Pharmacopoeia of the People’s Republic of China has been continuously supplemented, and the eleventh edition has been published so far. The book series “Chinese Medicine Collection” promotes the inheritance and protection of Chinese ancient books and documents, and interprets the wisdom of Eastern life sciences to the world.”
Sa Beining burst into tears again, saying, “This is an extremely A shocking journey of the soul”
“In other shows, the humorous Xiaosa always makes people laugh, but in “China in Classics”, he shed tears in almost every issue The face is full, and let us follow him with emotions, and we can’t be ourselves”…Many viewers said that the emotional intensity of this show is as high as the concentration of thoughts, “It’s so easy to cry!”
In “Compendium of Materia Medica”, Li Shizhen is the powerful dramatist King Jinsong. He feels a lot of pressure to challenge this role: “In this drama Li Shizhen’s emotional changes are very rich. He has sadness, forbearance, and hard work. It is the biggest difficulty to summarize his life in 60 minutes. In the drama, he suffered middle-aged bereavement. My father’s pain, I also undertake the important task of compiling “Compendium of Materia Medica”. This part requires me to devote myself to this part. Through the interpretation of Li Shizhen, I had a dialogue with him across time and space, and he embraced the idea of ”I am not afraid of difficulties until death.” I admire determination and faith to go upstream.”
Sa Bening once called himself the closest person to the “Emotional Shockwave” in this show. Some audience praised him for his good acting skills, but he told everyone: “When an excellent actor stands in front of you after dressing up, you feel that the sages are alive. Once you enter that situation, you will forget that you are acting and what you are facing It is a heavy classic, facing a great person, you are like living in that era!”
This time, when standing next to Teacher Wang Jinsong, watching his eyes burst into tears, Sa Bening burst into tears again: “I really feel that Li Shizhen is not afraid of all kinds of difficulties and against the current. The determination to go up, this is an extremely shocking journey of the soul!”
Li Shizhen has never seen the printed version of “Compendium of Materia Medica” and then realizes his dreams for the sages
“China” uses the unique method of “two-way interpenetration of time and space”, not only allows people to return to the ancient times to ask the sages, but also invites the sages to come to the present to see with their own eyes their painstaking creations and the guardianship of their lives. They are washed away by the river of time. What kind of fertile field has formed. Many viewers said that the most uncontrollable tears in this show are the relieved eyes when the sages saw today’s flourishing age. Fortunately, future generations of children and grandchildren live up to their trust, wishes, and thoughts. These ceremonial scenes, which have yet their wishes, also constitute the highlight moments of the program.
“The body is like a boat against the current, and the heart is stronger than stone Jian, look forward to your father’s ambitions, you will not be afraid of difficulties until death”, this is what Li Shizhen said when he asked his father for clarification and determined to practice medicine in his youth. This issue of “China in the Classics” takes this as the spiritual main line and connects Li Shizhen’s life of “traveling against the current”: the young Li Shizhen practised medicine with his father. When treating people in Qizhou, he often encountered wrong medicines In the case of, he firmly believed in the idea of re-editing Materia Medica. After that, Li Shizhen searched more than 800 ancient books and collected books, traveled across thousands of rivers and thousands of mountains to verify the Chinese herbal medicine, through the wind, frost, rain and snow, and kept a solitary lamp. In the past 30 years, he compiled the medical masterpiece “Compendium of Materia Medica”. “. What is embarrassing is that the “Compendium of Materia Medica” has just been carved, and Li Shizhen passed away immortally. He failed to see that the book that he had spent his entire life on was finally placed in front of him.
In this issue of “China in Classics”, “contemporary scholar” Sa Beining brought the elderly Li Shizhen to Chinese Medicine A reference room in the possession. Hearing that “Compendium of Materia Medica” is still one of the essential classics for TCM desks to this day, the gray-haired Li Shizhen took “Compendium of Materia Medica” in her hands, and finally made up for the regret of not witnessing its publication. He said: “This For a moment, I waited all my life.”

This scene and this scene directly hit people’s hearts. Meng Man, a professor at the School of History and Culture of Minzu University of China, said: “The moment Li Shizhen was holding “Compendium of Materia Medica”, I especially hoped that this crossing was true. Let him take a look at this book and his efforts were not wasted.” Zheng Jinsheng, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and the Institute of Chinese Medical History and Literature, also sighed with emotion: “I have studied the Compendium of Materia Medica for more than 40 years, and I have talked with Li Shizhen through reading the Compendium of Materia Medica countless times. But today, my I am really excited. I seem to have seen him standing in front of me with my own eyes!”
