Yantai City

Yantai City, also known as the “Most Charming City”, is located in the northeast of Shandong Province, China. Unlike the metropolitan cities like Beijing or Shanghai, Yantai offers charming, picturesque sceneries that made it one of the most habitable places in the world.

Yantai in Chinese means “smoke tower”. The city derives its name from watchtowers that were built on Mount Qi to send smoke signals as warnings against Japanese pirate invasions during the Ming Dynasty (14th-17th century). About 100 km away from Yantai City is the city of Longkou. Administered under Yantai City, Longkou City’s most famous attraction is the Longkou Nanshan Scenic Area.

Nanshan Scenic Area started its development in the 90s by the Nanshan Group to protect the greenery, and to preserve the culture and heritage in this area, as well as to promote tourism activities.

There are three sections at the Nanshan Scenic Area namely: the Chinese History, Cultural and Religious Park; Donghai Tourist Resort; and the Theme Park. People can visit Longkou Nanshan Scenic Area for relaxation and at the same time engage in spiritual activities for their peace of mind. 

The Chinese History, Cultural and Religious Park is built with the intention to preserve and promote the religious and Chinese culture. Specifically for the preservation of the Buddhism, this park holds the Nanshan Giant Buddha, Nanshan Temple, Jade Medicine Buddha, Nanshan Huayan Park and Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery. 

Apart from the Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha, which is the main attraction in Longkou Nanshan Scenic Area, the other two attractions are the indoor Jade Medicine Buddha and the Nanshan Huayan Park.

 

Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha

Located at the Longkou Nanshan Scenic Area is the world’s largest, seated bronze Buddha statue. The Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha statue is 38.55 metre-tall (126 feet) and weighs 380 tonnes. It was completed and consecrated in 2004. The Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha is also sometimes referred to as the Buddha of the East due to its location in China.

The body of the Buddha is made up of 232 pieces of bronze, its hair by 302 pieces of bronze, and its lotus petals by 108 pieces of bronze. To reach the Longkou Giant Buddha, visitors have to walk 360 steps from the ground-level, climbing a total height of 58.66 metres (192 feet).

Magnificent Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha

The magnificent Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha

The Longkou Giant Buddha is seated, with right hand holding an Abhaya mudra (gesture of fearlessness) and left hand holding a Varada mudra (gesture of granting boons). Abhaya mudra signifies fearlessness, peace and comfort while Varada mudra signifies compassion and wish fulfilment. When the two mudras are combined, they represent the Buddha’s compassionate aspiration to liberate all sentient beings from sufferings, fulfil all sentient beings’ wishes and bring peace, calm, comfort to all sentient beings. The eyes of the Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha gaze compassionately at all sentient beings. With a slight smile on his face, whether you are standing far or close to the Buddha, you can always feel Buddha’s caring energy like a mother to a child.

Under the lotus base of the Buddha statue is the Appreciation Hall, the Ten Thousand Buddhas Hall and the Buddhism History Museum.

The building of Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha was started by a few farmers about 30 years ago. Soon, another 20 villagers joined the farmers. Later, the construction of the Giant Buddha was taken over by the Nanshan Group as part of the Nanshan Scenic Area project.

Many kind donors have contributed towards the construction of the Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha. With a donation of RMB200 (USD30) and above, the name of the sponsors are displayed in the hall and regular blessing prayers are performed by the Sangha members of Nanshan Temple.

The leftover bronze from making the Nanshan Giant Buddha was used to make 9,999 pieces of small Buddha statues. Together with the Nanshan Giant Buddha, they make up a total of 10,000 Buddhas. People can invite the 9,999 Buddha statues home or they can make a sponsorship as an offering.

 

Buddhism History Museum

The Buddhism History Museum 1,800 sq. metre (19,375 sq. feet) provides an overview of how Buddhism found its way to China and the development of Buddhism in different time periods. Many precious relics and Buddhist items are displayed here for people to view and appreciate.

When musical fountain starts, the lotus petals will open, and the Medicine Buddha will rise slowly upwards in rotation. At the base of the Medicine Buddha fountain is the 12 protectors and surrounding the Medicine Buddha fountain are the eight Bodhisattvas as described in the Medicine Buddha Sutra.

 

Prayer Wheel Corridor

nanshan025

There are 108 Tibetan prayer wheels installed on the corridor for people to collect merits when they turn the wheels.

 

Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery

nanshan026

The original nunnery was built in 1600. It is said that during that time a girl from a Han family was very inclined towards Buddhism, and she only wanted to practice Dharma. Since there were not many temples in the area that time, her parents constructed the nunnery for her so she could do her practice and at the same time her parents could visit her anytime they wanted to.

When Nanshan Group rebuilt the nunnery on the same site in 1999, a very nice and pleasant scent dispersed when the old structure of the nunnery was pulled down. Hence, the nunnery is named Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery.

烟台市

点击放大

烟台市位于中国山东省东北部,它被誉为全国文明城市,虽然它不像北京或上海那样是大都市,但它美丽宜人的景色却让它成为全球最适合居住的地方之一。

明洪武三十一年(公元1398年),当地军民为了防止倭寇入侵,因此于临海北山上设狼烟墩台,亦称为“烽火台”。在军民发现敌情后,于白天升烟,夜晚则举火,作为警报信号,简称”烟台”。烟台山也因此得名。

龙口市是烟台市代管县级市,距离烟台市大约100公里。南山旅游风景区位于龙口市,其风景区有着世界最大的锡青铜坐佛。

龙口南山风景区在90年代由南山集团开发并发展。其建立风景区的主要目的除了促进旅游业之外,还有保护该山区的文化遗产。南山旅游风景区分三个主要部分:(一)中华历史、文化与宗教园;(二)东海旅游度假区;(三)主题公园。龙口南山旅游风景区不仅是个放松心情的好去处,也是一个进行灵修活动和寻找心灵上宁静历史母亲对孩子般的慈爱的好地方。

中华历史、文化和宗教园内的建设有南山大佛、南山寺、药师玉佛、南山华严世界和香水庵等。除了南山大佛为主要景点以外,另外还有两个著名的景物:室内药师玉佛和华严世界。

 

龙口南山大佛

龙口南山大佛,高38.55米(126尺),重380吨

龙口南山大佛,高38.55米(126尺),重380吨

龙口南山大佛选材锡青铜铸造高38.55米 (126尺),重380吨。它在2004年竣工,在同一年进行开光仪式。由于龙口南山大佛位于中国的东边,它也因此被称为东方佛。

这座锡青铜大佛由642块锡青铜铸件组合而成。访客必须行走360个阶梯,共58.66米(192尺)高,才能抵达龙口南山大佛跟前。

访客需逐级拾阶而上,历经6层共360级台阶到近处观摩南山大佛

龙口南山大佛结“施无畏印”与“满愿印”

龙口南山大佛结“施无畏印”与“满愿印”

龙口南山大佛的右手结“施无畏印”,代表无畏、平安和抚慰;左手结“满愿印”,表示布施、赠予、恩惠、接受。“满愿印”具有慈悲的意思,所以往往与“施无畏印”配合,象征佛为救济众生的大慈心愿,能使众生心安,无所畏怖,无忧无虑,且满足和实现众生所有的愿望。

龙口南山大佛慈悲的双眼凝望着众生,微微扬起的嘴角让你无论是站在远处或近处,都能感受到他如母亲对孩子般的慈爱。

龙口南山大佛其实在30年前就由几位当地的农民发起建造,随后另外20名村民也加入造佛的工作。后来这个计划由南山集团接手,成为龙口南山旅游风景区其中一个发展计划。

转经回廊旁是由108个藏式转经筒所组成,旨在让人们修积大量的功德

 

转经回廊

nanshan026

香水庵于1600时期建成。据说当时有一户韩姓家庭的女儿一心只想修行,由于僧尼庵并不多,于是家人动用资财建起了一座庙宇让女儿修佛的同时也方便家人探访。

当南山集团在1999年进行重修僧尼庵工程时,在将旧有的结构拆卸后,一股香气扑鼻,僧尼庵因此被命名为香水庵。

Its embraces the humanistic values and cater to the needs and moving times. As the earth is now a global village, modernization is key to address Buddhists from all corners of the world.

    Thank you for this sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about Longkou Nanshan Giant Buddha which is located at the Longkou Nanshan Scenic Area which is the world’s largest, with a seated bronze Buddha statue. The body of the Buddha is made up of bronze.

    With a slight smile on Buddha’s face, whether you are standing far or close to the Buddha, you can always feel Buddha’s caring energy like a mother to a child. The Buddhism History Museum provides an overview of how Buddhism found its way to China and the development of Buddhism in different time periods. Thank you.

    喜见中国有越来越多的大佛像。虽然有些人会批评说,一尊比一尊更大的佛像,会导致很多人慕大佛像之名而来,将原本殊胜的佛教圣地变成充满旅游色彩,扭曲了佛门圣地本该清净的原意,但其实若想深一层,我们不但不该不高兴,反而该十分随喜。无论来者本着什么心态,大佛本身具有的加持力并不会受到访客的心念影响,所以即使访客的心念再不纯正都好,作为客体的佛像依然能够带给访客加持,依然能够在访客心中种下殊胜的佛法种子,这本身就十分难得。自称为佛门子弟的我们,岂不该大大地为他们随喜吗?

  6. Pastor Albert on Jun 3, 2019 at 5:31 pm

    Indeed Nan Shan temple is very beautiful, like what was mentioned in the article, by just looking at the pictures, I already can feel the love and care by the Buddha to the sentient beings., The place was kept amazingly clean and it’s really a beautiful place to visit.

    It is important to keep the temple clean, because when the temple is attractive to the tourist, then it can attract many visitors to visit the place, when they visit the temple, they make prayers, they take photos, and they can get blessings. From the pictures, you can see that how well Nan Shan was kept with the maintenance.

    When I see this name, I keep reminding the phrase people used to say when greeting others during their birthday – goof fortune is as much as the East Sea, the longevity of life is as high as South Mountain (Nan Shan)

    It is such a pleasure to see all the beautiful pictures, it will be great if we can visit this temple 1 day soon 🙂

  7. Tsa Tsa Ong on May 23, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    Nashan Mountain is located in Longkou City’s Lushan Mountain in the Shandong Province. The area is home to beautiful natural landscapes as well as grand, elegant manmade designs. A national tourist area which consists of a Chinese history and culture park as well as religious culture park. The Nashan Great Buddha is the largest bronze tin sitting Buddha today in the world. Wow….. The statue is 380 ton heavy and 38.66 meters high. The Jade Buddha in the park is also the largest ever indoor Buddha at 660 ton weight and 13.66 meters height. Amazing findings………these two statues of Buddha are the two biggest highlights of the area. Beautiful Chinese architecture and historical culture with different styles from different periods of dynasties. The gardens and temples surrounding the giant Buddha are lovely. Really great place to visit and get some interesting photographs. Have not been there , wish I could visit and see it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism . Lama Tsongkhapa was hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time. Famous for reviving Buddhism in Tibet and revered for elevating the Dharma to all its present glory. Hence having a 12 ft Lama Tsongkhapa Statue at new Kechara Gompa (Prayer Hall) is indeed a blessing. Its truly beautiful. Merely by looking at it is a blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche and team effort making it possible.

    The Pemayangtse Monastery is a Buddhist monastery, near Pelling in the northeastern Sikkim. The monastery is about 375 year old and is one of the oldest and premier monasteries of Sikkim. Its also the most famous monastery in Sikkim and one of the most important monastery belonging to the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism. Pemayangtse monastery was founded around 1647-48 recording to history. Well the Monastery is part of Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit built with scenic backdrop of snow-capped mountains on two sides. Where many locals and tourists will travel to Sikkim yearly . Over the centuries, the monastery has withstood earthquakes and has gone through series of refurbishments and preservation efforts. Interesting story behind this monastery, would love to travel to Sikkim again .
    Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell was a British explorer, collector in Tibet, and author, travelling throughout India,Sikkim and areas on the borders of Nepal and Tibet. He wrote about the Tibetan Buddhist religious practices from what he observed while there. In Sikkim he made a stunning discovery, that Dorje Shugden existence in the Nyingma monastery as written in his book. Hence it has proven that Dorje Shugden been worshipped not only in Gelug lineage but as well in the Nyingma centuries ago too. Its not a minority practice afterall .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this interesting sharing.

    Revisit this interesting post of a great Master
    Buton Rinchen Drup, was a 14th-century Sakya master and Tibetan Buddhist leader. He is widely considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators, and writers. He has been the role model for many of Tibet’s greatest masters over the centuries, including the present Dalai Lama. His legacy also included the compilation of 500 years’ worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. This monumental effort helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, and continue to this day. He truly was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism.
    Throughout his life, Buton Rinchen Drup has continued to serve humanity and the Dharma. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

Toyuq, an Islamic pilgrimage center, nestles at the base of the Flaming Mountains. Here there are many mosques, both medieval and modern ones been built over the years. The first Uighur ruler had converted to Islam, and shrines was then built in the locality honouring the ruler. There was a story behind the legendary Seven Sleepers of Ephesus where there was a group of youths hiding inside a cave, at the Flaming mountains outside the city of Ephesus around 250 AD. Buildings can be seen practically everywhere with pierced walls that is used for drying grapes to make raisins. Raisins and melons are most known products of the region. Turpan is one of the most densely populated cities in Xinjiang the popukation consists of mainly the Muslim Uyghurs.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub was a highly attained lama. He was also commonly known as Takpu Dorje Chang who had many authentic visions of the Buddhas. He had even received directly teachings from Buddhas. He had received direct visions of Tara herself. Tagpu Pemavajra had travelled to Tushita, the heavenly abode of Lama Tsongkhapa as requested by Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche where he received the complete cycle of teachings on Dorje Shugden. Tagpu Pemavajra was one such lama who was attained enough to receive these teachings for the benefit of others. He was instrumental in the development of the Dorje Shugden practice within the Gelug tradition. Wow he was able to astral travel to various pure lands and receive special teachings. Interesting biography of a great lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing discovery a 2,000 year old Indian Buddhist document as it tell us how Buddhism took root in India. It’s the oldest Buddhist manuscripts yet discovered, dating from about the 1st century BCE to 3rd century CE. Found in the north-western outskirts of the Indian subcontinent an ancient Buddhist kindgom. The document, written on a birch bark scroll offers rare insight into the early history of Buddhism. Surviving manuscripts are rare only a few hundred are known to still exist. Understanding the history of the region helps us realize the significance of this scroll.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Manjushree Park, one of most natural, historic attactive park within Kathmandu valley. Fantastic well managed picnic spot one should visit and not to be missed when one is at Kathmandu Nepal. Visible 33 ft. high black stone carved Manjushree statue .Manjushri is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana Buddhism. The powerful image representing ever-present wisdom plus the sword of awareness to cut off all delusion. An interesting story behind this Kathmandu Valley where mythology and geology intertwine.

    According to Buddhist teaching, prostration manifests the spiritual growth, faith of a person. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, prostration is an important element of practice. Traditionally, prostrations are more than a show of respect for Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Making prostration is a basic part of our lives in Buddhism. They are a method to purify our mind, or the antidote for ego-clinging. One of the general benefits of prostration is that in the future we will achieve a good rebirth . Prostration is a very powerful activity that can clear away obscuration of our body, speech, and mind as well as clearing our past and present negative karma. A huge merits for anyone doing prostration with proper visualization as well as the proper motivation.
    Having seen practitioners doing prostration along the road at Lhasa and reading teachings on prostration on blogs had motivated me to do retreat on it. Its was during the MCO back in 2020, I did a prostration retreat then. Even though it took me a longer time somehow I have completed 100,150k prostrations . Now I am still continue to do but not as many prostration as before.
    Well even though this is an old post I would to congratulate those involved in the prostration retreat at that time. It’s a good that Kechara is have a teachings on prostration and retreat .
    Thank you Rinpoche.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
