Abstract: Shi Tiesheng accidentally became attached to the Ditan Park, and the Ditan Park melted into his life. In the "talk" with the "silence" of the Ditan Park, Shi Tiesheng comprehended the true meaning of life and transcended various stereotypes and concepts in the society. "Incomplete" and "alive" have new meanings. It is worth noting that Shi Tiesheng's awareness of life in the Ditan Park was not derived from rational speculation, but was obtained in a psychological state of "meditation" and "intuitive experience". The "epiphany" was realized. It coincides with the way that Taoist "Lao-tzu and Chuang-tzu" advocates confronting life in the universe with the way of "sitting and forgetting" and "emptiness and quiet" and realizing the true meaning of life. The similarity in the ways of thinking also makes their life philosophies show a striking similarity—they regard "mutilation" as the nature of everything, and "life and death" as a natural process. "Ditan Park" is not only the place where Shi Tiesheng's life philosophy was formed, but also an important part of his life philosophy.

Key words: Shi Tiesheng, Ditan Park, meditation, Lao-tzu and Chuang-tzu, philosophy of life
