He later wrote a letter to Emperor Xuanzong of Tang, in which suggesting holding a great ceremony of veneration on Mount Tai and asking for the emperor’s permission to participate in this rear event, otherwise, he would live in regret for the rest of his life. The emperor was satisfied with his sincerity and let him hold this event.
