Lesson Transcript

Anthony: Hi I am Anthony:.
Echo:大家好,我是Echo。
Anthony: And Echo, today we are on the most famous mountain in Sichuan.
Echo:没错,峨嵋山。
Anthony: 峨嵋山 is huge. It rises over 3000 meters and it contains over 70 monasteries.
Echo:非常高,也有很多的寺庙。
Anthony: Mountains exist in China for one reason and that’s to build temples on them and when you are at a Buddhist monastery, what can you do?
Echo:你可以拜佛。
Anthony: You can worship Buddha.
Echo:可以烧香。
Anthony: And you can burn incense.
Echo:对。
Anthony: And incense comes in all different shapes and sizes and prices. So if you did something really bad, you want to buy the biggest one possible and the whole point of going to a mountain is to get to the top and on the top of this mountain, they have the biggest and baddest temple.
Echo:普贤菩萨。
Anthony: The Bodhisattva of Universal Benevolence sitting at the top of three elephants with many heads.
Echo:对,有很多的头。
Anthony: And this Bodhisattva apparently is meant to save the souls of the dead.
Echo:这非常好。
Anthony: You can catch a beautiful sunrise if you have enough tenacity to brave out the night sleeping on top of the mountain. So for more on Buddhism and anything in China, go to

Hi, Erik Yee,


Thank you for your posting.

Sentence 2 and 3 are perfect.?

Sentence 1:

我们去峨眉山拜普贤菩萨。

Why we use 拜 is because it is a logical problem. We can not see real 普贤菩萨 in 峨眉山, we just go there to worship him.
