Ancient villages in China in danger of losing their souls (People’s Daily Online) 08:10, September 25, 2012

Taierzhuang Fortified Village

China is carrying out protection on its intangible cultural heritages in recent years. As an important part of traditional cultural resources, ancient villages are attracting wide attention. However, in the course of the integration of urban and rural areas, ancient villages are being impacted by urban culture, external culture and mainstream culture and their integrity and cultural elements are facing unprecedented challenges.

According to surveys and records by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of China, the Chinese Folk Literature and Art Society and the Rural Architecture Research Office under the School of Architecture at Tsinghua University, China had about 5,000 ancient villages reflecting its farming culture, including villages of folk houses, folk cultures and intangible cultural heritages in 2005. By June 2012, the number had decreased to less than 3,000.

Currently, China’s protection of ancient villages tends to emphasize tangible cultural heritages including the appearance, scenic spots and architecture. However, we should realize that an ancient village is an integrated entity with its external appearance, internal core and soul. Every ancient village is an inseparable combination of tangible and intangible cultural heritages depending on each other. If we protect only the material part and ignore the spiritual one, then we are just protecting specimens without souls and lives. We must fully realize the value of intangible cultural heritages of ancient villages.

Ancient villages present intangible cultural heritages in an integrated, systematic, comprehensive, practical, ecological and vivid manner. Feng Jicai, director of the Committee of Experts for Protecting Intangible Cultural Heritages, said, “The deepest root of the Chinese nation is in the villages and the brightness, diversity, originality and creativity of the Chinese culture are also there.”

Ancient villages are museums of folk cultural ecosystems and a living cultural heritage that is still being passed down. However, many intangible cultural heritages are disappearing in these villages. Taking folk language as an example, in most ancient villages of minorities in remote regions, there was no written language in the past so its collective wisdom was spread through an oral culture. There is no written record of these oral cultures and as society develops, many young people have left their villages and their interests turn to popular culture. As inheritors of these folk cultures pass away successively, these cultures are facing extinction. Currently, epics from many remote regions are not inherited and sung by local youths but by tourism developers. Since these outsiders do not deeply cherish and understand these cultures, it is hard for them to showcase the essence and core of these cultures, leading to “fake cultures” and “fast food cultures” in some areas. Therefore, Feng believes that these folk cultures accumulated in the past hundreds or thousands of years are shaking and collapsing.

People living in the villages are consciously or unconsciously creating cultures that have characteristics of the times, leading to the diversity of local cultures. It is an impetus and source of ceaseless human development. The tangible and intangible cultural heritages of ancient villages both contain abundant and profound historical and cultural information and these diversified village cultures reflect the richness and profundity of Chinese culture. Therefore, we must realize that besides protecting a silk handicraft, a story or an artist, the diversity of human cultures should also be protected in the future. In the long run, it will lay a solid foundation for the scientific, healthy and sustainable development of Chinese culture.

A traditional memorial ceremony is held to commemorate the anniversary of the birth of Confucius, the great Chinese philosopher, in Beijing and Taipei, southeast China’s Taiwan, Sept. 28, 2012. More than 500 people visited the ceremony on Friday.  Throughout China, High Priests of Confucian Orders and and Directors of NGOs Make the Annual Pilgrimage of Confucius to the Grand Gōng Què (Cathedral of Abstinence and College of Arch-Deacons) to Congregate for the Taoist Conclave. The Hexa-Decadual ‘Beginning of 60 year Cycle’ version on a grander scale are held in succession, at each of the 5 Eternal Taoist Cities.

The formation of the Holy Taoist See as a sovereign state within the PRC will be discussed at this years conclave of Grand Celestial Patriarchs in the Vault of Heaven.

Basic Terminology for Chinese Religious Architecture (not necessarily complete – will be updated) – Pater H

Buddhist architecture includes :

廟 /庙         miào         shrine
寺廟 /寺庙     sì miào         temple
寺院        miào yuàn        monastery

塔         tǎ         Pagoda; height recommended is in relation to area – 1 acre (5 storey), 3 acre (7 storey), 5 acre (11 storey), 7 acre (13 storey), 9 acre 17 storey
all pagodas above 11 storeys are termed SPIRES. An 81 storey spire is being proposed for the birthplace of Buddhism.
短尖塔        dǐngdiǎntǎ    Stupa or Chorten (there are 8 of these Apice-form buildings, typically to commerorate Buddha or various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas)
遺跡社        yíjīshè        Relinquary ;relinquaries are not absolute necessities or typify monasteries, and house relics typically of a well loved and particularly virtuous abbot and abbess (See note 1)

Taoist architecture includes :

龕 /龛         kān         taoist shrine (these are local fengshui or unique terrain worship areas barely the size of a gazebo, unique terrain can be anything from old trees, large boulders, small distinct ravines etc..)
祠         cí         ancestral hall; these are family run and can be interchangeable with ān
ancestral hall tablets for ancestor worship in confucian fillial piety, or to pray certain ‘demi-gods’, ‘godlings’ like powerful spirits, powerful nature spirits, kings/generals of animal species, etc) or great Sages and Saints like Confucius, & Qu Yuan, etc.
菴         ān         taoist temple hall (housing an typically family based order; this is in a geomantically viable area not large enough for an order but large enough to support a handful of priests)
館/馆         guǎn         taoist temple keep; taoist novitiate (any place where taoist acolytes are initiated);the equivalent of a cathedral; (housing an order; this is only in a geomantically viable area, many congregating priests require ‘energy’ for meditation)
宮闕 /宫阙     gōng què         temple complex with a ‘palace of abstenance ‘;

Interchangable or neutral terms referring to any large unspecified building of worship :

石(顧 /顾)         shí gù         Rockerie (Shelter of Rock/Stone); gù means to look after; take into consideration; to attend to

Featuring One Type of Rock (Larger Variable Rockeries also Possible)

聖殿/圣殿         shèng diàn     holy palace

;all of the above’s ‘cathedral’ level buildings and if large enough tend to have :

i) soup kitchens and shelters (indeed soup kitchens can also turn into places of faith)
ii) meditation cells (typically a low pallet without cushions or pillows where lay followers retreat to for days on end) for meditation and fasting on preparation for death undisturbed away from the noise of societry
iii) a collumbarium or ‘pit of acloves’ for ashes to be interred (this is a free service, be very wary the spiritual nature of commercialised versions posing as ‘faithful’)
iv) independent and viable reservoirs of water, at very least a well
v) a martial arts hall (new forms are extremely rare though not impossible, typically Tajiquan or Taichi is taught to acolytes for self defense with Taji Jian, Taiji Sword being learnt by those taking the path of physical and lower placed but equally important Temple Guardians rather than the Celestial Taoist Ecclesiarchy, a few do manage to be both and are highly regarded, though specialisation in either tend to reach the levels of Patriarchy)
vi)  art and relic museum
vii) a rockerie (much like a Scholar’s half Acre Garden but with deep occult and religious symbols instead of Literary symbolism);which are called Shigu in Chinese respectively.
viii) a “spacious” grotto (this is typically embedded with random statuary or sculpture, or murals and relief with occult symbolism related to the faith in question
ix) a “cavernous” ‘underground grotto’ (anything smaller than half an acre should be avoided as potentially cult culture)
iix) a labyrinth in which ‘fell’ spirits of the local geomantic region may comfortably seek refuge at in the day, Buddhism and in general Taosim disallows killing, EVEN of evil beings, because evil is part of good’s evolutionary path and good cannot be seen without the dichotomy of evil’s presence. Such areas are off limits to the living unless somehow ‘related’ with all interopers uninvited spiritual sinners who’s divinity will be forfeit etc..

I have studied many religious texts in religion for years and have decided that China only has 2 faiths, the main being China’s native Taoism and the periphery being out little brother neighbour India’s Buddhism. Confucianism is a notable philosopher that perhaps gained a spiritual exemplar’s place but cannot be considered a faith per se. Buddho-Taoism minor sects of course will not be included due to the contrary and less savoury practices which can and do confuse and even harm practicioners.

Note 1 :

Not all Abbots/Abbesses or High Priests get relinquaries, and in neighbourhoods where cult of personality or just crass plain funding, overshadows Buddhism is likely to form, a wise council of Elder Monks will refuse to set up a relinquary to any abbot as well; abbots’ influences are not always positive, especially in an order that bases the ‘right to abbotship’ to seniority (old age does not mean talent or spirituality) or ability in politics and manipulation of order elders (or heaven forbid, crass wealth and donations) rather than talent or virtue. Any flaws are said to be magnified througout the community and thus a relinquary ends up becoming a symbol of a minor Buddhist sect rather than the original mainstream sect of Theravada Buddhism as opposed to the lax and order-continuity favouring, instead of enlightenment favouring Mahayana.

For a Abbot (actually any leader of any sort as well) to mention ‘relinquary’ or ‘funeral’ and honoring themselves in the same breath with material benefits or memorials results in ‘Religious Suicide’ and instant refusal for consideration for any special interments. In areas where the Buddhist community is poorly networked or self serving and inward looking, there tend to be no Relinquaries for fear of spiritual retaliation by the spirit masses and greater forces in the afterlife (no assent from the living and existing Abbots!), which is the case these days. As per religious exceptionalism, 90% assent is required and those who build temples on wealth to become Abbots and Abbesses are considered ‘tourist project’ cultural tricksters. State level ‘Grand Abbots’ with the support of a majority of all private and public temples for a State relinquary, get a simple aye or nay upon their death.

There is a joke about Buddhism (and indeed all faiths) that goes : ‘What is similar between corruption and religion? . . . The Answer? – Money and Politics. The general advice is to always be wary of worldly religious persons.

Dalai Lama tells his Facebook friends that religion “is no longer adequate” –  by George Dvorsky – 13 Sep 2012   

This past Monday, people who have the Dalai Lama as a Facebook friend found this little gem in their newsfeed.

All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.

Dalai Lama tells his Facebook friends that religion “is no longer adequate” The Dalai Lama’s advice sounds startling familiar — one that echos the sentiment put forth by outspoken atheist Sam Harris who argues that science can answer moral questions. The Dalai Lama is no stranger to scientific discourse, and has developed a great fascination with neuroscience in particular. It’s very possible, therefore, that his thinking has aligned with Harris.

In a recent interview with the Globe and Mail, Harris had this to say about science and how it should be used to inform our moral and ethical sensibilities:

The moment we admit that questions of right and wrong, and good and evil, are actually questions about human and animal well-being, we see that science can, in principle, answer such questions. Human experience depends on everything that can influence states of the human brain, ranging from changes in our genome to changes in the global economy. The relevant details of genetics, neurobiology, psychology, sociology, economics etc. are fantastically complicated, but these are domains of facts, and they fall squarely within the purview of science.

We should reserve the notion of “morality” for the ways in which we can affect one another’s experience for better or worse. Some people use the term “morality” differently, of course, but I think we have a scientific responsibility to focus the conversation so as to make it most useful. We define terms like “medicine,” “causation,” “law” and “theory” very much to the detriment of homeopathy, astrology, voodoo, Christian Science and other branches of human ignorance, and there is no question that we enjoy the same freedom when speaking about concepts like “right” and “wrong,” and “good” and “evil.” Once we acknowledge that “morality” relates to questions of human and animal well-being, then there is no reason to doubt that a prescriptive (rather than merely descriptive) science of morality is possible. After all, there are principles of biology, psychology, sociology and economics that will allow us to flourish in this world, and it is clearly possible for us not to flourish due to ignorance of these principles.

It’s important to remember that Tibetan Buddhists, while rejecting belief in God and the soul, still cling to various metaphysical beliefs, including karma, infinite rebirths, and reincarnation. But interestingly, the Dalai Lama once had this to say on the subject:

My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims.

Other Buddhists, however, such as Stephen Batchelor, argue that Buddhism should be stripped of all its metaphysical baggage and simplified down to its basic philosophical and existential tenets — a suggestion that has given rise to secular Buddhism.

ICCR Notes :

Much like Confucianism is philosophy rather than a religion, perhaps Buddhism should be given the status of a philosophy rather than a religion. In either case, the Llama should return to Potala Palace and not fear the PRC Politburo while leaving Tibetans to self immolate in order to get their Grand Llama theocrat back home to Tibet.

A Tentative Essay on Re-Developments in ‘Deeper/Hidden’ Chinese Culture : Bearing of Genteel Arms (A Primer) – posted by T.E. Yu on behalf of Pater H – 12th June 2012

Incorporating the Article from : Six arts of ancient China (chinaculture.org) Updated: 2010-01-06 17:16

The Six Arts have their roots in Confucian philosophy. To master the Six Arts is the equivalent of the obtaining the status of a Renaissance Man. The elements of ethical education, academic study, physical education and etiquette are present in the Six Arts – all attributes requisite for Courtiers in a resurgent Imperial Chinese Court.

“To educate somebody, you should start from poems, emphasize ceremonies and finish with music.” A famous saying of Confucius on education.

As early as the Shang Dynasty (circa 16th century – 11 century BC) and Zhou Dynasty (circa 11th century – 256 BC), archery was a required skill for all aristocratic men (who would lead in battle). By practicing archery and related etiquettes, nobles not only gained the proficiency at war skills; more importantly, they also cultivated their minds and learned how to behave as nobles. To become a charioteer is also an excellent form of training that requires the combined use of intellect and physical strength. To promote all-around development in peaceful times later, students were required to master calligraphy, mathematics, rites, music, and the earlier mentioned archery and chariot racing.

This series of six practical disciplines became the Six Arts (六艺 liù yì):

Writing, or calligraphy, tempers a student’s aggressiveness and arrogance, while arithmetic strengthens one’s mental agility. The study of rites and music instills in people a sense of dignity and harmony. The rites include sacrificial ceremonies, funerals and military activities. Abit further though we enter the deeper levels of Chinese culture, philosophy, occultism and alchemy.

HISTORICAL CONTEXT

During the period of Cultural revolution these schools and masters were greatly feared by the early less cultivated military Junta, and perhaps with a more open attitude and proof of the lower classes of their right to access these skills (though wrongfully and violently), the next generation of former junta who have not been involved or are inclined to pogroms and expulsions as seen in the past or become as useless materialist Capitalist plutocrats with no consideration for the people around them, China cannot do without the schools of mysticism which have fled to Taiwan, but Taiwan without the mainland is as a body without a spirit. Together the soul of the Chinese peoples could yet bring about a much needed rennaissance of culture the likes that the world has never seen before. All Orthodox Tao schools have association and charter by the Dragon throne in re-formation to be ascended by an appropriate member of the Imperial House of Ying, Qin Dynasty as Ying III. ICCR’s temporary Emperor HIM Ying III’s message can be seen in the ‘about’ section.

After a proper stint at training of sword play, specifically with the civilian level ‘jian’ ? (the equivalent of the ‘Epee’ – with the single edged dao, the Sabre equivalent, carried by the military caste), the properly trained ‘Wushi’ and ‘Wenren’ (look up sections in this blog on the ‘Scholar Garden’) began work towards qualification for inclusion among the aristocratic ‘Jue Shi’ via the 6 Arts, and worked towards the grade of (the at least non-work oriented) ‘Xun Jue’ which required ability and sensitivity to acquire understanding in extreme nuance and required much study and a general departure from mainstream society of plutocrats and material matters to cultivate beauty, qi and the wonders of the Forbidden City towards betterment of the spiritual dimensions of the Imperium.

Flywhisk (left) and Jian Sword (right), Taoist martial (Wushi) arts.

Note 1 : In China, the 刀 ‘dao’ (do distinguish from the faith Taoism 道 ‘dao’ The Way, which is also spelt with a ‘d’ in hanyu pinyin) is known as one of the four major weapons, along with the gun (staff), qiang (spear), and the jian (sword), and referred to as “The General of All Weapons”.

GRADATIONS beyond the Wushi : The ‘nuanced language’ and ‘qi’ aspect is highly emphasised at this level

a) Dexterous Ornamental Fan Handling Skills (this is akin to an advanced form of ‘hand acrobatics’, or ‘sleight of fan’, an advanced take on a shorter form of the escrima)
b) The Blade Edged Metal Fan (this is a martial arts school with blade related variants from other martial arts using batons or rodform staves)
c) The Aery Fan (this is an occult arts school) andMahagony Sword rank equal
d) The Fly Whisk ranks above the former.

Orthodox Taoism

Significance of the Fly Whisk : these are not used or borne among the commoners or profane or even the outer orders who do deal with commoners. If there are no dedicated or state designated areas for use, typically the fly whisk can be seen in Taoistic Spirit Schools for ‘Occult Training’ or in Taiji parks and groves among the (well past material issues) elite.

Pre-requisite Training

i) Huangmei ‘Expression Scarf’    Private cultivation of Huangmei ‘Expression Scarf’ use is typically done in the mornings and evenings, begins once a child can walk.
ii) Study of Mudras – Study of Mudras is done as a form of supplication used to communicate with the ether, that begins once a child picks up the calligraphy brush.
iii) Whip Usage – Whip usage, once a child has necessary coordination.
iv) Large Calligraphy Brush (Feather Wand) – This is a stave sized brush that upon mastery of the skills of, entitles one to bear the Fly Whisk, a symbol of mastery of all these skills. The Feather Wand has Taoist significance over the Aery elements (including mastery of all incenses).

The Taoist Aery Feather Wand

;as a precursor, permit, and requisite qualification to use and bearing of the Fly Whisk. As the Fly Whisk is a tool or weapon of spirit, colour designation is a necessity (even if ascertained by the state registered Taoist Orders). In general (and a foray into re-development and a list of pitfalls against purist form, if not long established) we have :

White – Vegetarians, Purity
Grey – Either Vegetarians, Purity
Black – Non-Vegetarians, Non-Purity

Red – Has killed a being before, carnal knowledge, has given birth to another, those between worlds
Orange – Has embraced tenets of Buddhism incompatible with Orthodox Taoism
Yellow – Is a member of the royal family (draconic / naga realms)
Green – Has dalliances with the lower realms
Blue –  Has dalliances with the deathly realms
Violet – Night School

These all apply to the current life. A rainbow of colours displayed on the arms here does not mean better or more diverse persons, but the tendency is for the person to be a communicator (more rarely intermarriage between realms have also been known) between realms much as each strand is a link to the appropriate realms’ ‘denizen of necessity’ (i.e. diplomat or ‘dealer with the outsiders’ – again a mark of impurity . . . ).

THE FLY WHISK

White Horse Hair and Zitan Flywhisk, other materials appropriate to the sage or celestial in question are also known. Horn, or hair from certain animals may be substituted as needed.

The Fly Whisk is granted as an upper grade form of the literary and occult schools using the Mahogany Sword or occult art ‘Wind Fan’. ‘Wind Skill’ complements the Fan School (also is requisite), and can be very destructive in the hands of the uncultivated. The cultivated manifest these skills in the form of waterspouts or localized tornados, extreme droughts etc. at call. The extreme levels have access to telekinesis and levitation as witnessed by Pater H (cautionary on Earthquakes and Tidal Waves . . . ) .

The Taoist Wind Robe

This has roots in ‘Wind Spirit’ Animism, and cannot be accessed by those with no healthy respect of nature or the 5 elements or a ‘inner self’ that is known to and well loved by the Celestial Hierarchies.

After studies of the occult significance of the fly whisk and proper capacity for use, a Fly Whisk appropriate (those who hide behind the significance are again cursed, simply they find themselves unable to bear the fly whisk of the false colour without appearing like charlatans.

Identifying charlatans is simple, ask them of their willingness to be affiliated into a registered association and determine their demeanour among other spiritual individuals by bringing up issues on faith. A well studied faither would be well aware of some things and respond in a certain manner. This typically would put the peasants off but that is why stratification of society is unavoidable and the heavens are accessible only to Saints and Immortals . . .

THE RUYI SCEPTER

Samples of Ruyi : http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/life/2007-10/24/content_11569400.htm

Ruyi of Jade (Upper Nobility)
Ruyi of Ivory (Lower Nobility)

Ruyi of Gold (Aristocracy) or
Ruyi of Precious Wood (Persons above 60 or those who belong to the lower Aristocracy only).

The Mace of Parliament equivalent is the ‘Stave of Authority’ (typically carved with an appropriate variable animal or plant totem) carried and stored only by Clan Associations with links to the older era, ranks as aristocracy.

c) The White Jade Ruyi being originally considered as a congealed celestial substance is only issued by the Imperial Court to balance the lack of a spiritual link of the Aristocracy and Nobility to the power of the fly whisk Bearing Celestial and higher order Literati-Occultist. One may not carry the Ruyi without state permission. One may gain permission ONLY by application from the Grand Master of a School which does have access and proof of skill. Noblemen schooled in the occult arts may carry both.

China, Japan, ROK agree to enhance cultural cooperation (Xinhua) – 08:04, May 07, 2012

China’s Culture Minister Cai Wu (C), Japan’s Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Hirofumi Hirano (L) and South Korean Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Choe Kwang-shik

China’s Culture Minister Cai Wu (C), Japan’s Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Hirofumi Hirano (L) and South Korean Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Choe Kwang-shik sign documents at the 4th culture ministerial meeting in Shanghai, east China, May 5, 2012. This year’s culure ministerial meeting

between China, South Korea and Japan started on Saturday in Shanghai. (Xinhua/Ren Long)

SHANGHAI, May 5 (Xinhua) — The cultural ministers of China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) signed a joint action plan in Shanghai on Saturday to boost cultural cooperation between the three countries. According to the Shanghai Action Plan (2012-2014), the three parties will step up cooperation in protecting cultural heritage and conduct more exchanges between their respective cultural industries. Minister of Culture Cai Wu said China, Japan and the ROK have always sought common ground and preserved their differences in cultural matters.

“Culture is exerting great power, as the economy in northeast Asia becomes more integrated into the world economy,” Cai said, adding that many problems can be readily solved through the deepening of cultural cooperation. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the normalization of China-Japan diplomatic relations, as well as the 20th anniversary of the forging of China-ROK diplomatic ties. China and Japan, and China and the ROK have planned a series of events to boost their ties.

Hinaro Hirofumi, Japan’s minister of education, culture, sports, science and technology, said the Shanghai Action Plan is a “very workable document,” and the three sides have reached consensus on the importance and value of culture.

Choe Kwang Shik, the ROK’s minister of culture,sports and tourism, used a quote taken from Confucius (“a gentleman gets along with others, but does not necessarily agree with them”) to describe the three countries’ cultural exchanges. He said the three countries have a long way to go in regards to boosting cooperation in their cultural industries.

ICCR Note :

ASEAN+3 is part of the ICCR’s proposed vision of the 12 Asian Floral Thrones under the Sovereign Dragon Throne – The United Imperium of Asia. This is no ‘Game of Thrones’, but a new Asian Millenium backed internationally with the African Union (AU), ALBA-Mercosur and resurgent Soviet Russia. Socialist limits on Capitalism and green technologies (as propagated by the solar power and Imperial Chinese Arachnotechnology Institute based materials at the Necropolis of Confucius) should see a viable Oriental eon and brighter future for humanity.
