He helped unify China through his programs, including reform of the military, creation of law codes, and a land reform policy known as the equal field system. Another brilliant Tang ruler was Xuanzong (SHOO-AN-tzoong). During his reign, culture flourished. Many of China's finest poets wrote while Xuanzong ruled.

The disorder only lasted 53 years, though, from 907 to 960. In 960, China was again reunified, this time by the Song dynasty. Like the Tang, the Song ruled for about

suffering and achieve a state of peace. As a result, Buddhist temples that housed huge statues of the Buddha, arose across the land. Buddhism continued to influence life in China after the country was reunified. Buddhism continued to grow and spread. Chinese missionaries,introduced Buddhism to Japan, Korea, and other Asian lands. Buddhism influenced many aspects of Chinese culture, including art, literature, and architecture. The period from about 400 to 845 can be called the Golden Age of Buddhism.
