Daoji (1130-1209), commonly known as Ji Gong (Master Ji, Rinpoche Ji Gong), was a Buddhist monk during the Southern Song Dynasty in China. He was born with the name of Li Xiuyuan. Dao Ji was also called Hu Yin (Recluse from the Lake) and Elder Fang Yuan (Square Circle).

He was a monastic at Ling Yin Temple near Hangzhou. Even though his eccentric behavior broke the rules of the vinaya (traditonal code for monastics), Ji Gong had a kind heart and was always ready to lend a helping hand to ordinary people.

From then on, Ji Gong roamed the streets and helped people whenever he could.
