"Please sit down." The old man got up from his wheelchair and walked slowly to the sofa. It seems that he is not disabled in his legs, but sitting in a health wheelchair because of his old age. With a smile on his face, he said in a funny and kind way, "Well, according to the rules, ladies should be given priority. This must be Miss Sally. Look at me. I'm old and confused. I haven't been treated well. Please sit down." Sally smiled and sat happily on the sofa in the last seat. She obviously knew that the main characters today were the old man and Xie Huiren. However, Xie Huiren did not greet the host impolitely, but stared at the ancient painting on the wall, as if he had not heard the old man's greeting, and stood there in a daze, somewhat stunned. The old man turned his head and looked at the painting. He laughed and said, "Huiren, it's a coincidence that you come here today. You will certainly feast your eyes on it." Only then did Xie Huiren withdraw his eyes, smiled awkwardly, and said to the old man, "It's rude.". If you read it correctly, is it written by Fa Chang (Note 29)? "Oh?" The old man leaned back in the sofa, his eyes shining, and nodded appreciatively, "Good eyesight." He turned sideways and joked with Sally. "It's a pity that you can't see it in an art auction house." Sally smiled, turned her head sideways,321 stainless steel sheet, and began to look at the old painting. But she really couldn't see what was good about the painting. It seemed that the painter wanted to draw a dead branch. From the top left to the bottom right, he drew a winding tree. There was an ape on the branch, but it was not so beautiful. From a distance, it looked like a pile of ink. But the interesting thing is that in this way, the bent branches, like the arms and bodies of monkeys, are twisting mischievously. She looked at Xie Huiren in puzzlement. By this time, he was fascinated by the painting and muttered to himself,x70 line pipe, "It's really this painting. Isn't it in Daitokuji Temple in Japan?" www/xiaoshuotxt.co m Section 21: Avalokitesvara Code (21) (/t/xt | Xiao/Shuo Tian | Tang) "Well, I've been begging for days." The old man raised his hand in high spirits and said, "Later, the old monk promised to lend me two days to hang it. In return, I gave him the official edition of the Tripitaka of the Northern Song Dynasty (Note 30). Alas, it's a bit of a loss." At this point, the old man's expression was infinitely sad. Hsieh Hui-jen was startled. Although he said that he did not know the time when the Buddhist sutra was carved, listening to the tone of the old man, it was obvious that it was also an ancient version. He said that he would give it away, and that it was too generous. Xie Huiren stared at the painting again, looked at it for a long time, and said to himself: " 'Pure Zen', this painting is really a rare treasure." Sally didn't know what he was talking about and blurted out, "What did you say?"? Is there such a high value? "Pure Zen, x56 line pipe ,x60 line pipe," the ancient Chinese evaluation of Fachang's landscape paintings, said that the picture contains a lot of Buddhism. Xie Huiren could only tell her in the simplest terms. Dharma? How can this be connected? The old man laughed. "Well, Huiren, sit down first and tell Sally slowly." Xie Huiren wanted to get closer and take a closer look, but when he heard the old man say so, he had to sit down reluctantly. However, this painting also has a unique charm from a distance. Staring at the painting, he said, "Fa Chang was a painter in the late Southern Song Dynasty. It is said that his family name is Li, and he is known as Li Muxi. He is a brother of the same school as Shengyi in Japan. It is said that three of his paintings were brought to Japan by Shengyi. Among them, the ape was regarded as a classic and named'Muxi Ape '." The old man was in the sofa, listening quietly with narrow eyes, nodding as he listened, as if he were approving. What does that have to do with Buddhism? It can only be said that it was painted by a monk. "This is not something that can be said in a few words." Xie Huiren said, "Let's say that the subject matter of this painting, the ape, is a symbol that often appears in Buddhism." Sally looked at Xie Huiren in even greater amazement. Xie Huiren ignored her and said to himself, "Did you ever hear a children's story when you were a child?"? Said there is a monkey living in the sea, there is a sea monster in the sea, want to eat the heart of the monkey, lie to him that there is delicious food on the other side, camel him into the sea. In the middle of the sea, the sea monster said he wanted to eat the monkey's heart. The monkey was very clever and said, "I didn't take my heart with me. It's still in the tree on the shore.". The sea monster had to come back with the monkey to get the heart. "As soon as the monkey came ashore, of course he slipped away." Sally added with a smile, "This is a fairy tale that almost every Chinese has read when they were young." "Yes.". But do you know that this story originated in the ancient Indian collection of stories, the Five Books (Note 31)? Sally was really surprised. "Is this an Indian story?" "Yes?"? A lot of people thought it was a Chinese fairy tale. Xie Huiren also said, "There were many versions of this story later. In the Tang Dynasty, there was a man named Zhang Du, who wrote a very famous collection of stories called Xuanshi Zhi, in which there was a variation of this story. It said that a young man treated his father and someone told him that his father had to eat people's hearts to survive.". One day he saw a monk in the mountains. The monk said that he was willing to follow the example of Prince Mahasattva and sacrifice his life to feed the tiger. He could contribute his heart, but he had to eat a full meal before he died. After the young man invited him to dinner, the monk jumped into the tree and turned into an old ape and left. "Well, the two stories are a bit similar." Sally nodded her head. In fact, I only gave a general idea, and there is a lot of Dharma content in the story. However, this story is indeed a Buddhist story, which can be found in many Buddhist scriptures. Xie Huiren paused and continued, "Ape, as a symbol of Buddhist stories, has been circulating for a long time, the most famous one, everyone knows.." Sally blinked her eyes slyly and said, "Monkey King!" Xie Huiren nodded and said with a smile, "Yes, yes.". In fact, "Journey to the West" and "Five Books" have a lot to do with each other. This way of telling stories is learned by Chinese people from Indian stories and Buddhist stories. "Ha ha." The old man couldn't help laughing heartily. "Well said,316l stainless steel pipe, but I can't finish talking about it for three days and three nights.". All right, let's have tea. At this time, Yamato came in with a tea set in his hand. 14。 lksteelpipe.com
