There were some confusions about the life of Mr. Du Guangting because not only one person bore this name in Tang Dynasty. Perhaps, Mr. Du Guangting as a prominent Taoist priest was made official at the early period of Era Xizong and served in the Court. In the pre - Shu period, he was rendered the name of "Mr. Guangde", afterwards renamed "Mr. Guangcheng", and was promoted time and again until the end of the pre - Shu State, when he retired. He had visited Chengdu city for two times: First, early in the first year (880) of the Guangming period of Era Xizong , before he fled from the capital Chang' an , he made a wandering trip in Chengdu and collected some anecdotes. Four years later, he followed Emperor Xizong to Chang' an . At the end of the same years (the first year of Guangqi period) , he followed Emperor Xizong again to Sichuan and wandered in Chengdu, which was his second time to Chengdu. At last, he served the father and the son of Wang Jian in the pre - Shu State and died in Chengdu.
