In the middle of the rain, there are many visitors to Longan Temple, which is concentrated in Shiting. Shiting does not borrow a single plant or tree, but consists of three low oil-soil walls, 15 stones and white sand. Fifteen stones are arranged in five groups: 5, 2, 3, 2 and 3, which can't be seen at once from anywhere. It is said that here 15 represents the "perfect" - "everything is not perfect, and the perfect only exists in your heart, that is "the heart of contentment". Fig. 6 and 7 are stone tea ceremonies in the form of ancient Chinese bronze coins, which use a pure hand water bowl "squatting". In the center of the squatting is a quadrangular orifice with four characters "5, Ji, Yao, Pi" engraved on the edge of the mouth, and with "mouth" as the center, four words "I only have enough" are combined. The source of water on the bowl continuously injects words of fixed size, and the excess water can only spill over. Squatting will "the heart of contentment" through the pattern flower to explain the essence of "the contented are rich and poor, the greedy are rich and poor" and Shiting has the same work.
Kyoto. After several visits to Kyoto, I finally visited the Longan Temple. From the Jinge Temple, I could walk along a road to the Longan Temple and Renhe Temple, which were built on the mountain. Longan Temple is also a world cultural heritage, in which there is a stone court in the courtyard, which is its essence, but also the representative of the dry mountains and rivers in Kyoto. The stone courtyard is a rectangular courtyard, covered with white stones. It is shaped by rake. There are 15 stones in the center. This is the dry landscape. Sitting on the floor of the wooden courtyard and looking at the stone courtyard, you can meditate on the infinite world. There are only 14 stones in the number of ordinary friends. Searching for the fifteenth stone becomes a must-do item for tourists.
The mysterious realm created by the withered mountains and rivers brings an ordinary Japanese temple to the super throne of the world cultural heritage. The stone courtyard in front of the abbot in Longan Temple is about 25 meters long and 10 meters wide, surrounded by a white low earth wall. There was no grass or tree in the courtyard, and the white sand was raked into neat parallel waves. During this period, 15 rocks were carefully designed into five groups, showing the mood of islands floating and sinking in the sea. It is said that this is the best place for practitioners to understand Tao, and it has become the representative work of Japanese aesthetics with its dull and quiet ultimate realm. I don't know if Xuanzang monk would have 10,000 grass-mud horses galloping through the desert desert and the silent array of stone forests and snow mountains.
The abbot's courtyard was covered with white sand 25 meters wide and 10 meters wide. Five, two, three, two and three stones of different sizes were discharged from the east. The courtyard consists of five groups of stones, 5, 2, 3, 2 and 3 in the east, 5 and 2 in the east, 3 and 2 in the east, 3 in the middle and 3 in the third group. Since ancient times, odd number is positive, that is, the number of lucky. If you look at any part of the courtyard, you can't see at least one stone, that is, you can't see all 15 stones. It implies that life cannot be perfect. In addition, I am satisfied with the waterscape is also well-known. Longan Temple is not far from Jinge Temple for walking and cycling.
Longan Temple is quieter than other temples in Kyoto. Five groups of mossy rocks are distributed on a rectangular white sand ground in front of the abbot of the temple. This is a famous garden of dry mountains and rivers, designated as a world cultural heritage by UNESCO.
Today, one of the four scenic spots is the most favorite card puncher. One person sits in the courtyard for a long time, counting stones and looking through kimonos, listening to the explanations given by the old Japanese gentleman to foreigners. The tofu shop didn't visit because it was too tight to go downtown to buy things for friends. The traffic is very convenient. When I get back, I will go to Jinge Temple on No. 59, and then transfer to No. 12 to Four Rivers. Later, it was found that No. 59 can be reached directly, but the stops are different, but the area is the same. Good catch.
Longan Temple, the general feeling is general, but better than Jinge Temple. The most famous one is the abbot's courtyard. It is famous for its dry mountains and rivers, and its gardening is general. Here I feel that Japan's ability to propagate eggs has reached the level of hurricane. It can also make foreigners rush to imitate the great mountains and rivers, and reflect on our attitude towards historical and cultural heritage.
The dry mountains and waters of Longan Temple are world cultural heritage. Shiting Pingyuan, known as the first dry mountains and waters in Japan, has a picturesque and pleasant scenery. There are fifteen stones in the courtyard, but there are only fourteen stones in the courtyard. After a tour, I don't know where the fifteenth one is. If you are interested, you can count them.
Kyoto in cloudy and rainy days, less bright and clear in sunny days, but also more quiet and fresh after rain, from Lanshan to Longshan Temple by Lanshan tram, and then walk to Jinge. Wherever you go, the primitive and elegant temples are all around, not at all incompatible with the modern environment, but complement each other.
