Several of our village temple
I remember it was in the beginning of the liberation of the country, we have four village temple.Street called the center “Sanguanmiao” Laoyemiao Street East, the Goddess Temple, and Temple temple by the river. Sanguanmiao, is the most popular, then, someone elderly died, when funeral, the victim family, crying to be fired this temple.Because there is a team of seasoned banging away, I and a lot of children in the village next to watch.Sanguanmiao little yard, 10 trees large leaf YANG Zhan-half of the area.Sanguanmiao door is small, many people can only go slowly.They go into the wind and percussion Road stood in the courtyard, the victim of burning paper, burn the paper, but also that a few paper money, west penthouse of a Buddha who stick, a stick could not start until a secure fit, even if the completion ceremonies.This is Sanguanmiao the busiest day of the year there must be a dozen times now. After the implementation of co-operative in the village, the village wants to build team sites, need tile, there is a proposal of cadres, “by names of superstition, to this Sanguanmiao chops.”Wanted to come today, cadres certainly debate.Because the temple Pa things delayed for about six months.At that time, the villagers of land animals are the company entrance.Every family days are very short of money, it will be a simple funeral the.Naturally, someone’s funeral in the village, and no longer someone to come here Sanguanmiao.Pa did not finish in the past six months, we are also here to play.I do not know who, first penthouse statues pulled down, and then they throw a brick to hit someone in the hall of three tall statue.I looked very angry, then it’s also not get rid of a superstition, but to see so majestic tall painted statue smashed to pieces and my heart felt pity.Do not know Sanguanmiao a shambles, in our village, this constant incense for temple, I have not, and so far, the courtyard, large-leaved poplar trees that, the young big statue of electricity, after long remain in my heart maybe my mind is always thinking about this thing, I’m workers.Several times to the library access to information, to know Sanguanmiao three yuan, also known as the Temple.Three officers Lantern is a product of nine gas-day official blessing —- Ziwei the Great; Zhongyuan two products seven gas to the official —- Great Qingxudong forgiveness of sins; five gas water roadway Mishina officer —- in helping the hole Yin Dadi.Their birthdays are the fifteenth day of the first month Spring, Zhongyuan July 15, the roadway October 15.Emperors of the three officers are very respected, and provides a number of taboos.The provisions of section three yuan Tang Dynasty in the ternary Great birthday, three days each broken Tu, “is to make people stop killing day hunting and fishing.”.In the Song Dynasty, also prohibits trials and executions of death row prisoners in the ternary section. Sanguanmiao dedicated to the three official.Three officers in.Day official blessing is the most familiar.Buy a “day official blessing” New Year pictures posted on the wall as decoration.Day official on elegant paintings, three lock long beard, kind face, red robe jade, hand-held Ruyi.Carrying five boy, holding hands of each peach, pomegranate, bergamot, Chunmei and auspicious carp lights, a symbol of longevity, more happiness, loved by the people.Day official blessing the people can hope, maybe that is the reason people here Sanguanmiao built, my grandparents, probably for this reason, it was built in the village this Sanguanmiao.Unfortunately, at the beginning of Hu painting movement, destroyed, would not Tongzai! Goddess Temple Village in our mouth high platform, although I still do not know the historical origins of the empress, whether it is the villagers legend songziniangniang, but I remember the annual Lunar New Year April 15, ten eighty-eight village folks should go to our village, too Goddess temple.Weekdays, the street in front of my house is very little outside the village to come to the temple that day may incredible, people go to the fair, and filled the streets, shoulder to shoulder following the heel, full of people, near the small business and this is what benefit people have come, especially in selling incense, selling toys, mostly selling snacks.In front of the temple, was like a joy to the lake, the village will stilts, the car will, Shaolin, are performed here, won waves of applause.Goddess annual temple fair, Fanfan is our village festivals, clamoring noise, it seems like the market.Into the temple to burn incense, mostly middle-aged women, I go with my grandmother once, I remember the statue of the empress very dignified, very beautiful.Before the statue, there is a burning incense table.People coming in, kneeling on the mat, the hands holding incense lit, carefully inserted into the incense burner, they began to pray together focus.Pilgrims mouth to say something, only you know.I think, probably the ball of many sons now!It was the people’s greatest desire, therefore, that our village temple, in more than a dozen nearby villages, is the most famous, but also repair the best, highest.I counted, on the doorstep as much as eighteen layers.Yeah really good prestige. A lively festival temple fair to our village the villagers brought take to be happy.But only in mid-1958, due to the establishment of the Great Leap Forward and the people’s communes, I do not know not to engage in a higher level, or the charm of the villagers thought, in short, from now on, never seen such a temple.As the decades passed, although a lot of social progress, the people back home have lived a good life, but the kind of happy and harmonious scene, still memorable to me. Laoyemiao just north of niangniangmiao.Large yard.Inside planted with a lot of pine trees, and say the name of the rich fauna.I though people only go once, gave me leave a lasting impression.Laoyemiao moon rarely open door.Just because inside there is a campus-wide Lee Nianzishan, twelve days a month to open.Ten years old, the only time I entered the temple, only to see a narrow path leading to the campus-wide.Both sides of the road, pine forest, blotting out the sun.The tree is very bright wildflowers, patches of long grass particularly juicy.At that time, the yard there are people who see the temple, do not let us near the Basilica.I can only at this yard in a circle.I thought, when I grow up some, come take a look.I did not expect two years later, on this confusing and niangniangmiao a Laoyemiao been removed, and so far I do not know these two temples of brick wood is being spent?Just remember that day at the expense of the temple, I saw the temple on both sides of the house, yet there are two horses, it is the sculpture of a horse, one is red, one is yellow.The militiamen took him shattered, scattered on the ground there are colors Nitai.Which originally had a wooden shelf.Hit the horse a few people, this also smashed the wooden shelves!His mouth also swore: “Let your busy here, children do not go to work today, you hit one smashes!”These past events, it is painful, but I have two horses from the point of view, this Laoyemiao, perhaps worship is that people admired Guan Yu Wu saints —- Temple Bar?Only Alas, now difficult to trace. In our small river south of the village, there is a nunnery temple.Just too far from home, I have not had time to take a look, Temple temple was stripped off.That year, chops Temple Temple, it is to build a new school.It is very popular in.I heard that the temple would have no nuns, no one management, abandoned for many years, has long been dilapidated.With this place, with a brick here, we built a new school, so a lot of the village children can go to school, who are not in favor of it?I go to school in this school from the second grade, two years later, out of the high Murakami hours, the classroom is the temple dedicated to the gods hall, today, I think, several villages near us, are used as a temple school and no expense temple, what is it all of a sudden our village have been stripped off of it?Perhaps there is no culture of individual village cadres, thinking there is too radical right?Because in the end how, I still can not understand why, but also left me with a great pity ah! I thought, temples and cultural supplement the palace culture, enhance the harmony of Confucian philosophy, and promote the spirit of inclusiveness to promote “all corners” of.Chinese culture has a long history of the temple, the temple located in the country, both with special geographical and cultural information, also reflects a morality of the local population, and the pursuit of spiritual survival normal.Temple culture, in fact, pregnant mouth one kind of people worship a revered, a miss.In the custom of folk beliefs, the temple used to maintain and control the legitimacy of local social and cultural networks, both due to the gods their own endogenous forces, but also due to external forces temples of feng shui.It is ultra nationality, ethnic super, super beliefs, ultra-era, with a super-value convergence of Chinese cultural circle.Chinese history from the Spring and Autumn Period to the present, and are related to Chinese culture.From the aspects of houses, temples, folk customs and so on, we can see the essence of the meaning of ancient Chinese culture pulse, a taste of Chinese culture and sentiment clearly. I remember in my childhood, the village temple, the most sacred, and it is the best building in the village.White walls and gray tiles, towering tall.Green trees, exquisite statue.Key to leave these relics, which had a good!Also learn in the future, the village is more prosperous, rebuilt it several temple.I think, even beautifully built, there will not be time charm and look up.At that time the villagers, probably does not know the temple is the cultural heritage.We will not know that culture is not cut off the way!Once destroyed, can no longer be restored.Recently learned that my hometown of many villagers, feel should be preserved, this should not infringe on the sacred temple of the Pure Land, and now just left a regret, a sigh, a sigh: really too late for regret!
