Kumarajiva Temple has two oddities. One is that there is no Temple of Heaven, and the entrance is the Guanyin Temple. The guardian Wei Tuo Zun Tian Bodhisattva and the guardian Garan Bodhisattva stand on both sides of the main entrance outside the Daxiong Hall. The other is the twelfth floor of the Luoshi Temple Tower, which is an even number. Kumarajiva, a translator of Buddhist scriptures, is proficient in both Sanskrit and Chinese languages. He understands all Buddhist scriptures, so the translated scriptures "have the natural language of the Western Regions, super cool and handsome, wonderfully enlightened and beautiful. Deep in the sea, arguing with the flow of jade, it is as if you are leaping high in the sky, waiting for Kunlun to fall down.” This has epoch-making significance in the history of Chinese Buddhist scripture translation, marking the complete maturity of Buddhist scripture translation and creating a new realm. , It is difficult for future generations. Kumarajiva's translation is popular, concise and fluent, with chanting charm and literary beauty, reaching the pinnacle of translated literature. Kumarajiva is a high monk among high monks. He has never met in a thousand years. He is a genius thinker. His enlightenment is hard to come by. He is a firm propagator of the Dharma, self-sacrificing and altruistic, a great humiliator who saves all suffering. Kumarajiva is the pride of Chinese culture and has left a deep mark in the history of Chinese culture. The immortal Buddhist scriptures and profound Buddhist thoughts translated from his legendary life have spoken for generations of Buddhist believers and scholars for 1,600 years. Kumarajiva was the first person in Chinese history to end Chinese Buddhism for hundreds of years and have been using the principles and terms of Chinese thought to attach to the Buddhism era. Because he introduced the Indian Buddhism ideology systematically and comprehensively, it was the ultimate goal for Chinese Buddhism. Being able to stand on its own in Chinese thought circles, the Buddhist cultural circles laid the foundation. Kumarajiva is the crystallization of the conflict between ancient Indian civilization and Chinese civilization, and a master monk created by two different cultures. Zhao Pu’s old poem inscribed on Luoshi Temple: The translation of the scriptures and the memory of the house thinks about Luoshi, the body of trouble is Nian Zanggong, the hero of Liangzhou through the ages, so Ying Tianma is empty.
I wandered around the Kumarajiva Temple in the rain and read the introduction. Although Kumarajiva was an eminent monk from a foreign country, he had contributed so much to the spread of Buddhist culture on the Silk Road. It did not rot, and was later stored in the stupa. Although Taizu Lu Guang forced Kumarajiva to come to Liangzhou, Gansu, he also opened the peak of the development of Chinese Buddhist culture. The merits and deeds of one generation are left for future generations to comment. , Worth seeing
Free admission to visit. The temple was rebuilt due to an earthquake. The twelve-story pagoda is the only antiquarian. It is said that the tongue of Master Kumarajiva is hidden inside. In one of the temples, there are comic strips telling the story of Master Kumarajiva, which is easy to understand.
