Trip to China: Daoist monastery (part 9, final).
And ahead of a large Taoist monastery ….)))
entrance to the Taoist monastery!
Somehow did not think about Eastern religions before, but Taoism somehow caught its unusualness. This is more a concept of life and a philosophical system than religion in the sense in which this term is interpreted by us. The basis is harmony (“Man then reaches personal harmony when he accepts the nature and inevitability” of Lao Tzu, he is considered the founder of Taoism), this is perhaps the only religion that does not rely on blind faith – the enemy of reason. For thinking people, there is something to think about.
Huge occupied space. And the same non-letting rest follows us.
Directly from the bus we see a huge artificial tree hung with spotlights, cameras and God knows more than … It’s so that the view does not spoil?)))
A photo of a high artificial tree!
Before the monastery grandmothers sell incenses, packets of paper, which are then burned in ovens with Yin Yang symbols, I think that this is a ritual of remembering souls ..

There is also a mini antiquarian market where you can find unusual rarities, many, many different coins from different provinces of China, a paradise for a numismatist …))) Now I have straight 2 talismans with dragons from the past, donated for memory …))) Inside us meet the mythical lions, huge statues of Taoist giants with ferocious faces at each transition to the next level of the temple and old-old cypresses.
Photo of a statue of a Taoist.
These cypresses for some reason I wanted to call trees of desires, because, as they have an infinite number of red ribbons. Before us, a 5-year-old boy tries to throw a ribbon on the tree with a stone tied to it, and this is not a childish prank. Several attempts under the control of a non-interfering parent and success … I hope his wish will come true …)

And here is another very unusual old, wise, knotty cypress, who has seen much in his time. It seems to be divided into two parts and, it seems, without a core … there can easily fit a person … But the old powerful branches supported by the supports are still green. They are like the original keepers of the temple, and the feeling that as long as they stand & # 8212; there is a temple ..)
an unusual sight of the old wish tree!
We pass further, we get into the smaller yard. An unusual sculpture strikes the eye (personally to me, as a little chemist, resembling a piece of pipe from the system for the distillation of substances). In general, this figure is a Taoist, when they reach the highest level of enlightenment, purification and something else ….
Turtles, dragons are already an inalienable attribute of China & # 8212; in abundance …))) Look inside the side temple … amazing … just on the floor is our revered symbol of Yin-Yang, in the center of the statue of the monks,
Photo of the altar in the Chinese temple.
and on the walls of painting, and such that can envy any temple in Europe. The finest lines that convey the very essence of the image, accurately, without unnecessary aplomb … And I think everyone will be surprised to see on the wall of the temple not icons, but the history of human evolution … Yes …
the table in the Chinese temple of the Taoists.
Huge stones, with truths carved on them, what a pity that you can not read …
In the yard there are two old wooden pavilions that have not felt the restorers’ hands for a long time …
Again we pass by the huge statues of giants & # 8212; Taoists. Brightly painted, with fierce faces, on which everything is written that they will do with us, if we are naughty and do not listen to older and wise comrades … MDA … the prospect is not at all joyful …)))

We run into the temple, we go around it and get into another courtyard, very small … A huge wall, divided by a passage, written in hieroglyphics, and in the courtyard a girl engaged with the sword of Taijiquan (an extremely popular martial art from the family of domestic styles in China).
photo of a girl practicing sword mastery!
It moves smoothly, clearly, gracefully … Everyone looked at everything ..))) Then she changed her sword to an extraordinary device … a wooden stick resembling a royal scepter, with a tangible bundle of horsehair attached to it .. Though the guys doubted the effectiveness of this weapon, and me it seems that with skillful treatment, they can cause quite painful skin damage ….
girl is a practitioner with weapons!
In order not to embarrass the girl, went on, to the very top, to the main temple. There is not this golden luxury, so beloved by our priests, there is not this fuss, picky looks ….
The Chinese “voices of the wind,” as I call them, are very beautiful.
At the top of the dragon, trying to grab the symbol of power or can guard it …)))
a ceiling with ornaments and a dragon in the center!
We still have an hour …))) You can and need to find a place where you can sit and think. We went down to the small courtyard where the girl was engaged. The trees are surrounded by benches … perfectly …

Peace, silence and immersion and in myself … I have a shallow surface, shallow … The wind blows, the soft rays of the sun sloping towards the sunset … the presence of a person next … hmm … of the second …. I open my eyes … a monk … stands and looks at his neighbor on the left, who seems to have gone into himself and promises to return soon … an interested look, as if reading a person from within. And it seems that he liked the tone there, he liked it, even very much … With a smile he went on, deciding not to disturb … correctly … but to the point then … let’s continue …
And then I understand that I hear music, it’s in the monastery … Rhythmic, flowing into consciousness, not interrupting the smooth course of thought, first rushing from the depths, then rolling ever closer and closer … Oh, you … service behind the wall … This can not be missed … And this action behind the wall … music seems to plunge into nirvana … Monakhov is practically invisible, they seem to perform their rituals in a niche. And you are filled with music. You can stand for a long time with closed eyes and sweep along its waves … An indelible impression. But we must return to the guys who have perhaps returned from the inner world …
Still there is a bit of time and you can show curiosity … Interest will turn the mountains .. Vitaly goes to the lady with an unusual device and asks to show it … more … the girl shows him a complex that she hones herself … and then they repeat it together …))) refuse here with such an interest …))) here … let the rest of the modest envy …)))
And now I know where the rainbow lives …))) On the way back, we noticed an aquarium with a gold fish and a turtle’s image. You can see the turtle inspires its wisdom in desires and then the goldfish performs them at its usual speed … and this rainbow lives in this very aquarium …))) The real … bright, shimmering with the whole range of possible colors, and as if alive …) because the water, alarmed by the goldfish, moves … blinds the eyes with expressive colors, but it is very difficult to look away and move on … and somehow contrary to the knowledge that desires come true only when they apply a certain amount of strength, perseverance and soul, evils Tai fish performed the most sacred, why you go so long and strive ….)))
At the top of the nearest mountain we see a pagoda with steps, oh, what a pity that there is no time to get there ….
It’s time to go back … (((and I will not give you the appearance that you do not want to leave … “There remained a piece from each of us.” These places will be remembered with trepidation, with a desire to return. “You will remember long, rainy, snowy, dark evenings, and bask in this memory, wrap yourself in them like a fluffy plaid, which is calm and warm, always with friends, you can always rely on them and get support.The thoughts are similar, the feelings are overwhelming.You live here and now and it’s so cool.Oh, sometimes go far, far away to feel these emotions and that freedom, peace, and just be yourself and understand how it is to live today … and now … When you can safely answer the question, what day – The best …)))
And in the evening walk for pineapple and for the charm of the last evening in this amazing city. Small (for China), direct, charming, carrying in itself so many riddles, knowledge and wisdom that in order to learn them and life is not enough … It is a pity to part with it. And it was thought that without this piece of puzzle about this trip, compiled by us, will not be filled up to the end … There are places where you want to return. You feel them, you breathe and enjoy them. Dengfeng, with all his wonders, refers precisely to such a place. And then you realize that you know how to miss not only people, but also cities. Man you can write a message, talk on the phone …) And with the city do not contact on the Internet, it does not happen online, and if bored – no contact, if you are far away. You can only view photos, catch fleeting facts from the news. Therefore, you catch the charm of the evening, enjoy the communication with people close in spirit, so as to keep it inside as far as possible.
And how did the people who met regularly, without noticing trifles and sometimes even not noticing the main thing … The inner world, the soul, the breadth of the view. China has given everyone so much inner freedom, because there is no need to rush, run, do not have to solve problems, that you do not have a burden of responsibility and a lot of responsibilities. I think everyone is grateful to China for new friends. For in our daily life without this journey, I know for sure that they would not exist … But in fact, for this one needs to thank one remarkable person. He is our pivot. He is the one who sets the working pace by his example, encourages him to become better, to strive upwards, continuously working on himself. A person who feels each of us. And sometimes it even seems that he knows your thoughts. Communicating with him, as if gaining experience, wisdom, knowledge, tranquility, which he knows how to share. Open, positive, strong Man. You just need to want to take it all. He is the one who can be called a true Teacher …)
