Standing in the Kathok Temple looking into the sky, its sky is like eight wheels, and its ground is like a blooming eight-petal lotus. The squatters on the top of the mountain and between the mountains are dotted and everywhere. The topography on the left and right sides is like eight auspiciousness, the mountain shape behind is majestic like a large white umbrella cover, and the mountain shape in front is like a right-handed snail, which means that the reputation of Kathuo will spread far. "The sky is misty and floating in the clouds, and the lotus core is misty in the mist." Suddenly I remembered the sentence I don't know who wrote it.
Kathok Temple is called the mother temple of Nyingma Sect. After turning a sharp bend, when I inadvertently looked up, I suddenly found that Kathok Temple was held up high by a clever giant palm, and it seemed to be sitting on the back of an eagle that was flying with its head upright, looking straight. Unobstructed in front of us. The feeling of being in the mountains at this moment is different from all previous imaginations: a feeling of walking in the clouds; a feeling of flying high...
I have been to more than ten temples in Tibetan areas, and Kathok Temple is the most shocking and attractive. To reach the temple, you need to rise from 3000 meters to 4800 meters. There are countless hairpin bends. Before coming to the temple, you have to accept the test of the Buddha. The entire temple plus the Shiming Buddhist College is built in the middle of the mountain, facing each other. The monks here are more warm and friendly. They will take the initiative to take you to see the temples that are not open and open up the Buddha statues on all levels of the mandala.
[View] Go here when you miss it.
Kathok Monastery, a place you won’t regret when you come. This kind of life and my longing for travel, the folk customs are simple and honest, you will be shocked to see the completion of the Daxiong Hall and ten Buddhist colleges. What else to go to Lhasa? , This is the life you and the tour group can't see and experience.
