Memories of Tibet (8) : My Way

my way

I, a bin and Chen formed a new three person line.

Early in the morning, we would go out in groups and loiter on Beijing road. There are shops selling various groceries on both sides of the road. We want to find a small shop for breakfast. Under an overpass, we found a small Chinese restaurant with many Tibetan guests. It seems that they are not picky about the food of the Han people.

We ordered the familiar black rice porridge, soybean milk, fried dough sticks and eggs. After eating, we calculated the cost. The average price is more than 14 yuan. It's really small, but the goods are not cheap! See in the black rice porridge also mixed with Chinese wolfberry is also very good to drink face, on the soy sauce purple bar.

Only breakfast time, Beijing road began to be busy, bustling with traffic.

When we walked out of the small restaurant, we saw that the opposite intersection was very busy. We stepped onto the overpass and looked in the face of the intersection. There were swarms of people, like ant colony. On both sides of the flow of people, there were stalls and drinking shops selling butter, beef, candy and snacks. On the building opposite the road, there are five words "Chongsaikang market". It turns out that this is the largest wholesale market in Tibet.

We follow the flow of people, look left and right, and walk aimlessly. There are some foods that we can't understand that make us feel fresh. The white coagulated objects that are worn with thin threads look like massive quicklime. They were originally thought to be medicinal materials, but actually milk dregs made from yak milk after solidification. There are stacked waxy foods, which were thought to be cheese, but actually butter extracted from milk. There is also waxy food, which is yellow and brown, Finally, I knew that it was brown sugar for drinking water

There are also small Tibetan buildings on both sides of the corridor, strange Tibetan wooden bowls, various Tibetan ornaments, warm and practical Tibetan robes, Tibetan snacks, Tibetan jelly, etc., all of which are fresh

We wandered aimlessly and found that more and more Tibetans were kowtowing in the middle of the road. Occasionally, when we passed a small temple, we would see that there were all Tibetans waiting in line for passing. Walking, I found more and more Tibetans around. At last, we stopped in front of a big temple. The scene before us was very familiar. We arrived at Jokhang Temple.

There is a huge crowd of pilgrims around the Jokhang Temple. There are hundreds of long dragons around the courtyard wall of the Jokhang Temple. We wanted to visit the Jokhang Temple. We saw that such a long queue was also daunted

In confusion, sister Nan called to ask us to go to the sera temple. The sera Temple argues for the human landscape of Tibet, which we can't do without. So we happily agreed to take a taxi at the gate of Xiaozhao temple.

Located at the south foot of Wuzi mountain in the northern suburb of Lhasa City, Tibet, sera temple is one of the six major monasteries of Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It was founded in the early 15th century a.d. by jiangqinquejie, the disciple of zongkaba, the "king of great kindness".

The temple is large-scale and built according to the situation of the mountain. In front of the temple, there is a flowing sand river. The temple covers an area of about 115000 square meters, with the main buildings such as the tsochin (assembly) hall, mazacang, jizacang, abazacang as the center, and dozens of Kang villages (sangshe village, composed of a group of fellow monks) are interspersed. Although there is no planning and layout during the construction, due to the consistent appearance and color of the building, the main building is tall, so it has the role of commanding the overall situation, making the whole temple appear to be primary and secondary orderly. All the houses in the temple are of stone wood structure, covered with AGA soil on the roof, and the upper part of the white exterior wall is decorated with purple black Beima grass, which has a strong Tibetan style.

Around 3 p.m., the monks continued to enter the scripture debate arena. We sat on the stone steps beside the scripture debate arena and watched the monks dance and clap with their hands. They spoke Tibetan language, which we didn't understand at all. It was just like watching a performance, taking a picture and recording a video

In the evening, we were invited by sister nan to watch Wuwen Xidong. Looking at it, I suddenly feel that what the movie expresses is not exactly the "my way" that I pursue. I'm a little relieved, and I'm a little proud when I think about the past. But I don't understand why the English name of the movie is translated as "forever young". My friend Dabai told me that young representatives also have the cover to choose!

Yes, there is nothing happier in the world than the right to choose freely, but how many people have never thought about making choices for their own lives. Just like the Han people, why there is no faith! And Tibetans, do they know why they chose to believe? Perhaps, they don't want to pursue anything in the past, or take the goal pointed out to you as the pursuit, or take others' comments on themselves as the pursuit

No matter what, if we are willing to be blind, we will never see the real self.
