Looking at a celestial burial, I have a lot of experience, whether it is mercy or cruelty, that is, benevolent people have different opinions, wise people have seen wisdom, and chatted with the leader all the way to talk about celestial burial. He said that the people buried in the celestial burial are merciful people, the last practice of their own, is a kind of great compassion and charity. They abandon their flesh to feed vultures, so that they will not die of hunger and return their lives to thousands of people. Things, like life, will eventually return to their origin~~
If you used to think that traveling is to follow your heart, but go to Seda will make you feel that it is to follow your destiny, if there is no world worries and panic, I am afraid I would not think of go to Seda. And one of the places Sadapi went to was the Celestial Burial Platform, the corpse of Tuolin. Celestial burial, often without the protagonist - vultures! Celestial burial usually begins after 2:30 p.m., about 10 minutes'right turn from the gate of Buddhist College and then go around a hillside. Many tourists come to watch the celestial burial. The barbed wire has persuaded a large forbidden area. People can only watch it from afar. It is not easy to see it clearly without the help of telescopes and long focal lenses. Viewers have different attitudes. Some people have described the celestial burial as follows: they appreciate the attitude of Tibetans towards death very much, and they are calm and respectful.
Seeing celestial burial in Seda is one of the compulsory courses for no reason. As for celestial burials, watching them will make you feel the impermanence of life. Tibetan Buddhism believes that lighting mulberry smoke is to pave a multicolored road, respectfully invite the empty mother to the celestial burial platform, the corpse as a gift, dedicate to the gods, pray for the redemption of the sins of the deceased, ask the gods to bring their souls to the heavens.
In the past, visiting the celestial burial was able to witness the celestial burial master dissecting the human body. Now, in order to show respect for the deceased, the dissection of the human body is completely covered up. When you see vultures grabbing food, you know things are changeable.
Visiting the celestial funeral, climbing the hillside, there is a large flat grassland, in the middle of which there is a small area of uncultivated grass several hundred meters round, piled up with large and small stones, beside which there is a stone tower, surrounded by a circle of stone walls - this is the celestial funeral site known as "corpse tuolin" since ancient India. Every day after 13 p.m., there will be celestial burial, because of respect for the deceased, the area of celestial burial is encircled, except family members and staff of the celestial burial platform can enter, other tourists can not enter at will. Opposite the cemetery, there will be designated areas for visitors to watch. The curtains will be pulled up before the cemetery begins. Far away, but also blocked by the curtain, to tell the truth, we can not see the details of the specific implementation, only occasionally the curtain blown by the wind can vaguely see the figure of the celestial burial master waving a knife. It seems that the sky is also the scene, gloomy, with the beginning of the celestial burial, more and more vultures come from the high altitude circle, waiting for the hillside near the celestial burial platform, patiently waiting for the Apocalypse of the celestial burial master. When the burial master finished decomposing the corpse and opened the curtain, vultures rushed to the corpse. I don't know if it's the smell of a corpse or a vulture. The funeral table smells worse and worse. Someone beside it can't help vomiting. Remember to go to the funeral table and wear a mask.
Wherever Saida comes, it must be. It is believed that most people are curious and don't need self-deception to feel life and death to gain insight and other self-deception words. But please obey one rule, don't shoot the deceased. I don't know if I am related to Buddha or not. In the process of stopping smoking and chatting with Buddha, a resident of Buddha College said that I am related to Buddha to send me diamond hammer card. In fact, the whole process is totally blocked in the funeral platform. You can't see what you want to see. The main thing is to feel the atmosphere and smell of the corpse floating around you from time to time. Maybe it's true that Jushi said he had a relationship with Buddha. When he first came to the celestial burial platform, he happened to see the whole process of a person from scalp peeling, meat picking, brains poking, bone cutting, a body being eaten by vultures into a skeleton, plus I saw only three people. After reading, the mood is more peaceful, which is just a way of death. Compared with watching the celestial burial, what I remember most is that in Buddhist College, a man climbed to a mountain without human habitation and suddenly met a wild dog running towards me with sticky saliva at the corner of his mouth. There was no one but the wind, me and wild dog. So, on the top of the plateau mountain at an altitude of more than 4000 meters, he ran with wild dogs. Many people walk in Seda with pale faces, but I don't have any altitude reaction and run wild with wild dogs, which may be related to Buddha.
I witnessed a Tibetan funeral [celestial funeral]. ] In order to see the final farewell of this life, I waited in the cold wind for more than an hour. The process cannot be photographed. Of course, they will never take pictures. This is the minimum respect for the deceased. Before the ceremony began, the sky began to darken. Groups of vultures, offered by Tibetans as divine birds, come from afar and circle ceaselessly above their heads. The family members carried the body of the deceased into the celestial burial platform, and the celestial burial master began the farewell ceremony. But in a few minutes, the body was disposed of, and then more shocked me. Hundreds of vultures had already surrounded the cemetery. They all flew into the cemetery to compete for flesh and bones, and soon there was nothing left. Families of the deceased do not cry, nor do they have much grief, because they feel that the celestial burial is sacred. Their pious beliefs, the charity of the body after death, the separation of the body, the soul can be six reincarnation. In the true sense, life does not bring, death does not bring. I don't know how to describe my mood. In short, there was a moment when I almost cried. Many people would say that blood, cruelty, fear and nausea were not felt at all at that time. There is only awe for the dead and life. Take good care of life. To be careful
(The timid don't look at the celestial burial) The entrance to the Buddhist Academy is 3.5 kilometers to the celestial burial platform. It takes 50 minutes to walk. But there seems to be a bus at the entrance of the Buddhist Academy around one o'clock. Celestial burial time is around 2 p.m., respecting the deceased. Photographs and videos of the deceased are strictly prohibited. There are 7-8 human bodies, 2 human bodies are fallen, some left face is broken, all blood. It has a back and feet covered with gauze. Two others were old people, carried in small coffins. There are children who carry them in their pockets. When they pour them out, they all huddle together. There is also a human body has swelled, green, it is estimated to be drowned, the Lama first clean up the human body, then turn the human body over, face to the ground, and then use a sharp kitchen knife to peel the human body from the neck to the buttocks. Then grab the hair and cut off the scalp. Separate the meat from the back and legs of the human body for vultures to eat. It is estimated that there are more than 200 vultures, and the dam is crowded with them in one fell swoop.
