Today is the eighth day of the eighth lunar month – Laba Festival. As the saying goes, Laba Festival is the year after Laba. The arrival of Laba Festival also means that the New Year is approaching. On Laba
Day, we have the custom of drinking Laba porridge and pickling Laba garlic on Laba Festival. Today’s Yonghe Palace in Beijing is not the usual bustle.
On January 13, visitors lined up early outside Yonghe Palace in Beijing to drink porridge and pray fo
r good luck. Yonghe Palace in Beijing serves porridge on Laba Festival, which is a tradition that has been going on since Qianlong in Qing Dynasty.
A citizen said that he came here at 8 o’clock and did not expect so many people. An old man
said that he would come every year, and it has been 35 years since 84. Another family drove from Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province, at 4 a.m. to pray for porridge
. A group said that the porridge was very good and warm. It took him 40 seconds to drink porridge in his eighth meridian. It took him 2 or 3 minutes to take a picture.
According to reports, there are about 20,000 or 30,000 people going to Yonghe Palace for porridge today. The master of the temple said that he had prepared porridge for today’s
charity for a week. He had cooked porridge all night, and now he is still cooking porridge. He has cooked more than 100 barrels. When asked about boiling
porridge and giving charity, so tired not tired when the master said, not tired not tired, the joy of all living beings is our joy.
It is reported that Yonghe Palace is the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Beijing. As the Royal monastery of the Qing Dynasty and the
activity center of Tibetan Buddhism in Beijing, it has been highly valued, respected and supported by emperors of all dynasties.
Up to now, Yonghe Palace still maintains the tradition of porridge on Laba Festival. Every Laba Festival, local and non-local believers in
Beijing flock from all directions to collect “Buddhist porridge” blessed by monks reciting Sutras in order to achieve good luck and peace.
Today is Laba Festival, Xiaobian also wishes you good luck and well-being. Every place has different
customs. Some places have to eat Laba garlic, some places have Laba noodles, and some places have to eat ice. How do you spend Laba?
Today’s NBA is a “cold” day. First, the Pistons beat the Clippers, and the Eastern Ninth beat the Western Fifth. One of the key points
of this campaign is Griffin’s return to Staples to face the old Clippers. As a result, Griffin did not disappoint the fans. He scored 44 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 breaks and 1 hat, which made the Clippers regret. Aft
er the Grizzlies lost to the Heat again, Wade’s desperate defense made the Heat laugh until the end, h
e scored 10 points and 5 assists in the game, showing excellent performance. What surprised you most was the Celtics’103-105 home defeat.
With 2.9 seconds to go before the end of the game, the Celtics were 103-105 two points behind. On the final attack, Hayward’s sideline se
rved to Tatum, who barely missed the shot with a slight mistake in the poor dribble. After the game, Owen looked a little depressed. What was he talking to Hayward loudly?
Then he went into the dressing room. Owen scored 25 points but did not take the game away from Orlando. From the tactical arrangement, it was clear that Stevens had let Tatum
finish the final attack, but Tatum failed to hit without critical experience. Owen expressed his dissatisfaction with his teammates after the
game. Owen admitted that the young players in the team did not understand the level of the championship team and did not know what efforts they would have to make every day to win the championship, if they recognized it.
It’s hard work for the team now, and if they get to the finals, their ideas will be subverted. “The team didn’t have any big goals last year. Everyone played relaxedly and simply. Everyone played well beyond expectations. What about this year? Everyone, from players to coaches, has great expectations for this year, but we haven’t done well. We can overcome the difficulties, we can become better, I can do better, we need to win those away games, as a leader, my responsibility is to lead you to the finals. Owen continued.
