Today, Xiaobian brings you the disappearance of Mengshan Buddha for 600 years? Interested readers can follow Xiaobian to have a look.
During the reign of emperor Hanming, India was introduced into China. The first Buddhist temple in China was built, and then Buddhism rose and fell with the dynasties. Many places built Buddhist temples, and Buddha statues also appeared in various places. During the period of Tianbao, Mount Meng Buddha, located on the cliff, was chiseled up to 66 meters, but it disappeared mysteriously and reappeared 600 years later. Where did it go in these hundreds of years?
In 559, the second year of Tianbao in the Northern Qi Dynasty, Kaihua temple was built in Jinyuan District, Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province. Gao yangci, the emperor of culture and propaganda, granted the sum of money. A mile behind the temple, a Buddha statue was carved on the mountain. From this, Mengshan Buddha became the earliest stone Buddha statue in history and the second largest Buddha statue in the world. At that time, technology was not developed, but craftsmen carved 66 meters high, lifelike Buddha statues, which also made people feel today Sigh unceasingly.
As for the specific time when the Mengshan Giant Buddha was excavated, Taiyuan county records the second year of Tianbao in the Northern Qi Dynasty, which was established at the same time with Kaihua temple. In Taiyuan county records and Shanxi general records, the Buddha statue was later than the time when Kaihua temple was established. According to the description of rebuilding the zhuangyan Pavilion of Kaihua temple in Mengshan, scholars believe that the digging time of the Mengshan Giant Buddha is the tenth year of Tianbao (559).
In 620, Li Yuan, Emperor Gaozong of the Tang Dynasty, came here to worship the Buddha. Since then, he has attracted many pilgrims to worship the Buddha. In the second year of Tang Xianqing, Emperor Gaozong and his Empress went to Kaihua temple to worship the Great Buddha of Mount Meng. When they saw the Buddha, they were very amazing. They specially ordered people to make a cassock according to the figure of the Buddha, which looks like "Buddha shining". The common people think that the Great Buddha of Mount Meng is spiritual There is an endless stream of pilgrims from Kaihua temple.
In the fourth year of Huichang in Tang Dynasty (844), it was ordered to destroy the Buddha, the Buddha Pavilion of Kaihua temple was abandoned, and the Mengshan Buddha was exposed to the wind and rain. 11 years later, the king of Jin visited the Buddha and established the Buddha Pavilion, which was repeated again and again. Until the end of the year, after hundreds of years, the Kaihua temple was finally destroyed, and no one managed the Mengshan Buddha.
After the fall of the Ming Dynasty, the entry of the Qing army, the end of the Qing Dynasty, and the war, the head of the Mengshan Buddha disappeared. Even passers-by, who still live nearby, thought it was just a stone mountain. By 1983, municipal staff Wang jianni accidentally found many places with temples in the Mengshan area of Taiyuan. It can be seen that in history, there was a great respect for Buddhism here Teaching.
And there is a place name called Dadu cliff. Wang jianni thinks it's very novel. So she goes to find out that Dadu cliff is the breast of the Giant Buddha in Mengshan mountain. Because the rock mass of the Giant Buddha is loose rock, after hundreds of years, the weathering and collapse are very serious. The model of the Giant Buddha in Mengshan mountain has been very vague. The flat ground on the top of the cliff behind the Buddha statue is also ancient architectural relics.
This was originally a very amazing building for the world. At this time, it was like an old man who lost the original beauty. It's a pity that the site of the Great Buddha in Mengshan was found and protected. In 2006, after a lot of understanding, the government carried out the work of repairing the Buddha's head for the Great Buddha, and the country decided to repair the world's Buddha.
Considering that Xishan Giant Buddha is a Buddhist culture, the soul and connotation of which is "Buddha", the statues should reach the surface, the surface and the meaning, or they are the eclipsed sculptures. After the restoration of Mengshan Giant Buddha, it is open to the public. Nowadays, the Giant Buddha attracts many tourists, which is still shocking.
