The first time I went was late. It was more than 4 p.m. The ticket seller suggested that it would be more appropriate for me to come back the next day. Thank you. Almost all the halls in the Sala Temple will close at 4:30. The restaurant Buddhist Academy begins at 15 o'clock, and there is no debate on the weekend. The temple is built around the mountain, which requires a little physical strength. There are many stray dogs along the way, but safety is no problem. There are also free-range yaks. A panoramic view of Lhasa can also be seen in the middle of the hill behind the Sala Temple. The bus No. 24 in front of the temple gate, Zhepeng Temple to Sala Temple, is about an hour's drive away. It's convenient to arrange a day of worship.
Sarah Temple Bible Debate: There are three meanings of second-hand attack in Bible Debate: one is the silent clapping of one's hands, everything in the world is the product of the harmony of all sentiments; the other is that applause represents impermanence, everything is fleeting; the third is that the crisp sound awakens the compassion and wisdom in your heart and drives away your evil thoughts. The right hand is pulled down and back again, hoping to save all living beings from suffering through the good thoughts and wisdom in their hearts. When questioning, he raised his arm and waved it down, which symbolized cutting off ignorance with the sword of Manjusri Bodhisattva; pressing his palm down was to suppress greed and obsession in his heart; pulling the beads of Buddha was to defeat each other with the power of Buddha.
We must go to Tibet to see a Bible Discrimination. Even if you don't understand what they say, you will still be attracted by the atmosphere. The Bible of the Sala Temple begins at 3 p.m. every day and is open to visitors. So don't miss it! Argumentation is the greatest feature of Tibetan Buddhism, with a grand scene and a grand occasion lasting for thousands of years. It can be one-to-one. Or one-to-many. The debate must be conducted in Tibetan. The Respondent must answer the questions posed by the questioner without hesitation. It takes too long to think, or when the respondent is asked down, the audience around him will boo and fall down. The debater should remove his yellow cap before he can wear the crown again.
The Sala Temple, known as the Sala Mahayana Temple, is one of the six main monasteries of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. With Zhebeng Temple and Gandan Temple, the three major temples in Lhasa are the latest of the three. Sala Temple is a national key cultural relic protection unit, located at the foot of Salahuzi Mountain, 3 km north suburb of Lhasa, surrounded by willow forests. Since ancient times, it has been a place for living monks to preach sutras. There are many small monasteries surrounded by Pubujue Temple, Mijongreniku Temple, Gongbasa Temple, Papenggang Temple, Zaxi Qulin Temple, Qusang Temple and Guru Temple. There are also Zhukang Riqu, Lue Temple behind the monastery. La Zeding Temple and so on. The most famous place of the Sala Temple is the Braid Sutra, which starts at 3:00 p.m. every day for two and a half hours. There are three braid Sutra halls in the Sala Temple. I went to the largest place at that time. The tourist ticket of the Sala Temple is 50 yuan, and Tibetans have no tickets. Let me say "Braided Sutras" It's a pair of lamas, one standing and one sitting, one to one braided Sutras. Standing lamas hit their left hand with their right hand, said the topic of debate, pointed to the sitting lamas as if asking or answering questions. Sitting lamas would look up at the standing lamas to argue. So they would argue with each other repeatedly. This is what I understand "Braid Sutra". Maybe "Braid Sutra" is an improvement of ideological realm.
One of the six main monasteries of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism (Huang religion), covering a large area (more than 110,000 square meters), was founded in 1419. It was built by Jiang Qingquji, a disciple of the founder of the Yellow Sect, and is a key unit for the protection of cultural relics throughout the country.
How important is the Sala Temple? I threw my baggage out of the plane and went straight to the Sala Temple. In order to worship the King of Matouming, Tibetans usually wait in line to worship the King of Matouming. The temple is bigger and can worship for a long time. It's almost 4 or 5 p.m. when I leave in the afternoon. The first stop of pilgrimage in Lhasa. PS. I recommend several books by Mr. Lin Cong "and West'. Tibetan predestination" (very detailed pilgrimage guide, suitable for those who want to know Lhasa deeply), imaginary enemy "God's children are going to Tibet" (easy to understand for those who don't want to make plans) Mr. Liao Dongfan's "Lhasa anecdotes" "Tibetan customs" (relatives who want to expand their understanding of Lhasa in Tibet) and the above books are all in their hands and feel very good, so I recommend you.
It was 3:30 in a hurry to the Sala Temple, and the famous Bible-debating activities were still in progress. The monks gathered dozens of people, sitting or standing, discussing in Tibetan, surrounded by tourists. Although they can't understand a word, the intense action from stamping, clapping, or throwing rosary beads conveys their serious debate. Turning around the Sala Temple, we found that there was a palace halfway up the hill. It was really a bit mysterious.
Zhepeng Temple has a bus directly to Sala Temple. Harm me to carpool back to Dazhao Temple and then use drip-drip taxi to Sala Temple. Fortunately, it's not very far. The Debate of the Sala Monastery does not begin until 4 p.m. I watched for an hour, and though I couldn't understand it, I also felt enthusiastic and amusing.
Sala Temple is located in the northern suburb of Lhasa. It has a bus through with a ticket of 50 yuan. It was built in 1419. The statue of King Matou in the temple is the most famous. After visiting the temple, it is best to walk along the turning path. There will be many new discoveries. Up to the middle of the hill, you can see the panorama of Lhasa. The Bible here is also famous!
