Sera Temple is the Gelugpai Temple. It is also known as the "Lhasa Three Great Temples" with Ganden Temple and Drepung Monastery. I went to the Sera Monastery completely for the debate, because I heard about the Sera Monastery before I left. The debate is one of the folklore that Lhasa must watch. The lamas were in the hall of the hall, chanting, and I and the Tibetans sat around the stools around the main hall, feeling the sacredness of the short, long, sacred, listening to the debate at three o'clock in the afternoon, first by an elderly The lama introduced a brief opening ceremony. Then, after the debate began, although the words could not be understood, I would like to visit the Sera Monastery in order to experience the inheritance of this day. After the event, watch a scene of debate for faith.

I like the living conditions of Buddhism in Tibet. Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Ganden Monastery are the three major temples in Lhasa. It is the oldest building in the three major temples. The temple has the most famous debate ceremony in Tibetan areas
When I arrived at the temple, both the monks dressed in shackles and the Tibetans in Tibetan clothes revealed their sincerity towards the Buddha. It is like two worlds with us./
Most tourists like us are all directed at us. The most famous debate ceremony here comes ~
There are many people who watch the debate. When we arrived, the debate hall was filled with dense tourists, and there were many foreign tourists~
dozens Lama or standing or standing, divided into one-on-one, one-to-many, or many-to-one combinations, questioning, rebutting, refuting and then answering, using a variety of gestures, physical movements, or hand rosary, One foot is independent, even glaring at each other, vigorously claping to make a strong voice~ A debate is a practice for the monks, it is like watching a lively event for tourists~
but dont care, dont understand, dont use Deliberately explore the meaning of chanting, be able to come here and feel positive Everything that has been born is already the fate of the previous Buddha...
In addition to watching the debate, the Sera Monastery itself is also a very large temple~ Walk around and turn around, maybe a corner can surprise you~ There are all kinds of beautiful Thangka murals inside, so you cant take pictures~
Sera Monastery tickets are 50 yuan and there is no student ID card.
Local residents do not need tickets.
Yes, the student ID card is very bad in Tibet. Brought with a leucorrhea.
Sera Temple has a well-known debate.
I used to see it in books. The book describes the very...the Holy Spirit. (Forgive me for not being able to describe words.)
The debate was originally from India. In fact, it is to follow the logic of reasoning system, to debate the teaching of Buddhist teachings.
Of course, when we went to see it, we couldnt understand what they were saying. Only their momentum can infect people.
Everyone is very focused on doing one thing, very devoutly speaking about the Buddhist theory they understand.
Sometimes when you are excited, you will also increase your voice and your face will rise.
After reading a debate, your back will be unconsciously sweated.
In the morning, I went to the Sera Monastery and climbed up. Our goal is actually Figure 9, or it is a little worse, and I can't climb. The weather in Lhasa is really good.
