茵萊湖-彭都奧寺

0


彭都奧寺裏有五個貼滿金箔的佛像,遠看就像大花生﹗

在茵萊湖,很少看見喇嘛,連寺廟也少,彭都奧寺是這裏比較宏偉的一座。在遊湖期間,船夫順道帶我們參觀。這裏外觀和內部裝修都沒甚麼特別,比起仰光或曼德勒的佛寺還要遜色,最特別的,要算是大堂中央供奉的五粒「大花生」。

其實這些並不是花生,它們是五尊佛像,傳說是九百多年前,Alaungsithu王前來游湖時,妖怪變成人類前來一睹國王風采,但其中一個妖怪小孩掉到湖裏,國王用鞭擊湖命水龍王救出小孩,這妖怪為感謝國王,送上一塊香木給他,而國王便把香木雕了這五尊佛像。後來上香的人多了,每個人也很有心地在佛像貼上金箔,久而久之,佛像變成了一座一尺高的金花生,怎樣也看不見佛像的原來樣貌。不過我想,如果將這些金拿去賣,那便發達了,哈哈~~~~~~~ 說笑罷了,反而有個衝動,很想拿起佛像看看有多重,但這幾尊佛像卻嚴禁女士接近,我只有隔岸觀看的份兒,十分無癮。

參觀貼士:
1. 免費入場
2. 這裏不能帶相機,拍照要付100k相機費。

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」
