Eight thousand years of civilization to see tianshui, five thousand years of civilization to see xi ‘an. Tianshui, as an important birthplace of the Chinese nation, is a must not miss place in gansu. The e ancestor source of Chinese civilization tianshui eight thousand years of culture, tianshui ancient name into the period, a long history, human gathering, profound cultural base, cultural relics and historical sites, is the human ancestor fu xi, nuwa fill the sky born tianshui. On the large-scale fu xi temple square, tianshui culture atmosphere is particularly strong.
Is opposite the fu xi temple gate on the stage, is putting on a play about love, attracting the local citizens or sit on the ground or move to the small bench, listening to the stage a play, it is said to be infatuating. Qin opera is the earliest, most widespread and most influential local opera in gansu, and this qin opera originated from tianshui.
Eight thousand years of civilization has left a rich historical and cultural heritage here, among which drama is one of the treasures. For watching and listening to the opera, many young people can no longer accept these traditional cultures, or there are not many young people who like these traditional cultures. But in tianshui, qin opera has not lost its popularity among young people and is still active in the public.
Sitting under the arch of fuxi temple, almost all of them are old people, including some young people. Everyone was absorbed in the play. It reminds me of when I was a little girl, my grandmother would drag me to the theater with her little stool whenever someone in town offered to pay for a performance. I don’t understand it, but it’s very popular.
Most memorably, grandma often talked about singing with her friends, as if we would pay attention to the entertainment gossip. They discuss who sings well, who doesn’t, and even gossip about who is good-looking or married to a 4th wife.
But now, in my hometown as in the past to play almost no longer. But did not expect in the fuxi temple square in tianshui, but also to see such a scale of singing scene, not only recalled my good childhood memories, but also let me feel very close. Many passing citizens or visitors, see someone singing on the stage, can not help but stop to listen for a while.
However, in the square in addition to see the opera, there are also independent citizens singing opera. Tianshui people not only love to see the play, but also understand the play, also love to sing. It is said that in the past, tianshui had the custom of singing all around the country (that is, singing in a cappella). With the continuous improvement of people’s living conditions, there were many retired drama lovers who would organize themselves and sing by themselves to form a music class.
This is very common in fuxi temple square, I have come to meet twice. According to local residents, people come here every day to sing the opera, very lively. Even in winter, when fuxi temple is empty of tourists, the square is not deserted.
If you are interested in drama, you will be familiar with the qin opera or the qin sound. In fact, in a certain sense, the birthplace of the qin sound is in the ancient city of tianshui. Although I do not know the opera, but do not know the qin opera, but when you are surprised, listen to the qin opera feel very happy, there is a high crisp momentum.
Of course, there are also other civic activities in the square in addition to singing and watching operas. For example, on the edge of the ancient stage, there are three or five old men playing chess, surrounded by a lot of spectators. See this scene, I have to say, civilization has brought quality self-restraint hate is not simple. Eight thousand years of tianshui civilization, the achievements of today’s tianshui people to the inheritance of traditional culture, also achieved their spiritual world of wealth.
On the left side of the gate of fuxi temple, there is also a ceremony of Taoist dharma, although it is not clear what the purpose of this dharma is, but the solemn ceremony dare not have any delusion. Fu xi, the first Chinese nation humanities, one of the three emperors, the main achievements are the creation of tai chi trigrams, characters, fishing and hunting, marriage and so on. The trigram of tai chi originated from the book of changes and was later used by Taoism. It is an important classic of ancient Chinese Taoism to discuss the changes of all things.
So it’s not surprising to see a Taoist dharma meeting in front of the fuxi temple. The altar of this dharma meeting is towards fuxi temple, maybe for fuxi, maybe for blessing.
There are also many people and tourists lit candles, incense. Although the law may be small, but its significance and importance are self-evident. In addition to the above mentioned, there are many other rich civic activities in the square. But surprisingly, there was no square dancing.
Eight thousand years of civilization, tianshui ancient city is full of too much Chinese civilization heritage. But to my relief, people living here, whether their spiritual outlook or entertainment life, are bordering on the ancient Chinese civilization. Although do not know the young people’s world is how, but at least tianshui old people’s life is very rich and wonderful.
