At first, he committed himself to the teachings of Laozi and Zhuangzi, but later, after reading the Vimalakirti Sutra translated by Zhi Qian (支謙), he became a Buddhist. One day, he was summoned by the emperor who wanted him to serve as a high-level government official. However, he refused to follow the imperial edict and was beheaded.

    Standing at the door while sending off three people including Fayan, Zen Master Luohan Guichen (羅漢桂琛, 867-928) said,
    “My senior disciples! You are always searching for Tao, but there is only mind in the three realms.”
    Then he pointed to the stone below the courtyard and asked,
    "Is this stone inside your mind or outside your mind?"
    The monk Fayan said,
    “It is inside my mind.”
    At his answer, Zen Master Guichen said with a smile,
    “How could a pilgrim be so obsessed with something that he carries a heavy stone in his mind?”
    At his words, the monk Fayan found a profound lesson. Source: The Mysterious and Interesting Story of Jikji, Taehak Publisher
