In the Chinese scripture, the word Xinglin means “Apricot Grove”.Thee Daoist philosopher Ge Hong in his biographies of immortal divines known as “ Shenxian Zuhan” tells about a doctor De Fong who lived in the era when three kingdoms used to rule in China. De Fong was very famous due to his skill, ability, and goodwill. However, when he cures a patient of a certain disease he used to ask the people to plant an apricot tree near a grave. People who have very chronic diseases, when cured, planted five apricot trees. As he cured the patients the apricot tree numbers reached 100,000. The rich people came to see those trees and were required to place a bucketful of rice. In this way, those people who do not have food to eat can easily enjoy the meals. From that day in China, the term “Xinglin”, is used for expressing apricot trees and medical skills. 杏林 在中文經文中,杏林一詞的意思是“杏樹林”。道家哲學家葛洪在他的神仙傳記中被稱為“神仙祖罕”,他講述了德芳醫生的生活,當時該國曾被三個王國統治。中國。德芳因他的技巧,能力和善意而聞名。但是,當他治愈某種疾病的病人時,他常常要求人們在墳墓旁種一棵杏樹。患有極慢性疾病的人一旦治愈,便種了五棵杏樹。當他治愈病人時,杏樹的數量達到了100,000。有錢人來看看那些樹,被要求放一桶大米。這樣,那些沒有食物可吃的人可以輕鬆地享用飯菜。從中國的那天起,“杏林”一詞就用來表達杏樹和醫療技能。
