A monastery’s blessing ritual 寺院祈福儀式

The beautiful Matepani Monastery sits above a small forest and overlooks Pokhara, Nepal’s largest city by area. The red and gold roof contrasts with the blue sky, the Tibetan flags ripple in the breeze, and shafts of light illuminate colourful interiors. Simply visiting this sacred space is special, but a personal blessing from the head abbot can be arranged if you stay at The Pavilions Himalayas retreat. Close your eyes as the abbot chants, blesses you and places a silk khata scarf around your shoulders. pavilionshotels.com/himalayas 坐落小森林之上的Matepani Monastery是一所絢麗的藏傳佛寺,可俯瞰尼泊爾面積最大城市波卡拉的迷人景致。屋頂紅金相間,跟藍天相映成趣,而七彩經幡則隨風飄揚,一道道探進寺內的陽光令繽紛悅目的裝潢更形鮮艷奪目,眼前盡是靜謐寫意的畫面。能到聖地一遊已是寶貴的經歷,但如能入住The Pavilions Himalayas度假村,更是修來的福份,因為住客可以透過特別安排,獲寺院住持親自祈福。閉上眼睛,讓主持唱誦祈福經文,最後伸長脖子領受一種名為「哈達」的絲巾,盡洗心靈的俗垢。pavilionshotels.com/himalayas
