On July 18, 2018, the Abbot of Lingyin Temple Venerable Master Guangquan led a group of over 300 people, including the Lingyin Sangha and other Buddhist believers, on a pilgrimage to Putuo Mountain, which is the Bodhimanda (way place) of Guanyin (Avalokiteshvara) Bodhisattva.

The massive group led by Venerable Master Guangquan set out from the front gate at 7:00 a.m., following the Buddhist ritual of bowing to the ground in a full prostration every three steps along the tourist pavement starting from Putuo Sacred Land via the ancient pathway of Sansheng Temple and all the way up to Puji Temple. Passers-by along the road all showed great respect and admiration as they saw the pilgrimage group. At about 11:00 a.m., they arrived at the destination—Yuantong Hall of Puji Temple, where they returned the merits to the general public by praying for blessings. This marked the successful end of the pilgrimage trip.
