What people are saying:

A thousand-year-old temple that even Xi'an people don't know. The teacher invited his friend to show us around. In terms of terrain, Caotang Temple is like a chair in this beautiful place, surrounded by mountains on three sides. This is the ancient national translation center, where the scriptures are translated. The famous Master Kumarajiva is here, who translated the Diamond Sutra, Lotus Sutra, etc. Without him, we still see Sanskrit today. We went in the afternoon and saw the mist from a smoke well in one of the eight scenic spots in Guanzhong. The locals said that this is very rare and rarely seen. In addition, we were very fortunate to witness the stupa of Kumarajiva, which is a national cultural relic and is not allowed to be opened to the outside world. The teacher's friend invited the monks in the monastery to see it. The teacher said that he can only look through the door when he comes on weekdays. The view from the Jingang Pavilion in the back garden is so beautiful. This trip was not allowed, and I returned to Shanghai in the sleeping berth and wrote the longest comment in history. I am grateful to Teacher Yin Haoran for leading everyone to have such a blessing. 【view】
