The purpose of this study is to examine whether Neo-Confucianism(新儒學) affects the the style of Song-literati Scholar’s works and to consider the operation and shape of senses in works, targeting a Buddist temple-related poetry created using Buddhist temples as “Space”. By constructing Song-literati Scholar’s basic worldview, Song’s Neo-Confucianism thinking allowed them to think of Confucian Heavenly Principles(天理) as the basis of all things, “to study the penomena of nature in order to acquire knowledge(格物致知)” and to have a heavy sense of peace and peace on their own. The influence of Neo-Confucian thinking led to the delicate observation and description of “Sense”, unlike the beauty of Tang Poetry, although many of Song’s poems were characterized by “Reasoning(說理)” and “Speculation(思辨)”. In poetry works, the action of “Sense” absorbs the color of the Space depending on where the human sensory organ is exposed. From this point of view, a consideration of the process of shaping poetry, which combines Buddhist temples as a “Space” of creation and “Sense”, the source of shape thinking, can be a way to understand the inner world of Confucianism and Buddhism. In conclusion, despite Neo-Confucian’s strictness, Song-literati’s poetry related to temples was particularly noticeable in the delicacy and refinement of “Sense” based on “Space”. Although the literary aristocrat created “Blandness(平淡)” and “Serene(沈静)” poetry through the moderation and purification of emotions in poetry creation under the influence of the Factor of Inner Sage, such as cultivation of mind and morality, this is due to Neo Confucianist’s basic thinking.
