Mt. Emei, entitled “Samantabhadra Bodhimanda (way-place)”, is one of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains of China. Many large-scale Buddhist ceremonies and dharma assemblies are held here every year.
Now, there are 27 temples accommodating over 300 monks and nuns in Mt. Emei. Buddhist ceremonies such as “Worshipping Samantabhadra with Ten Thousand Lights”, “Water-Land Dharma Assembly” etc. are constantly held. Mt. Emei is the place where Samantabhadra Bodhisattva presented himself as a human being. The ten vast and great practices and vows of Samantabhadra imply peace, auspices and success. After the construction and consecration of the 48-meter-high ten-direction and four-faced golden statue of Samantbhadra on the Golden Summit, pilgrimage to Mt. Emei becomes more meaningful. Tourists can clasp the Giant Buddha’s feet in Leshan, comprehend Buddha Dharma in the Dafo Temple (Great Buddha Temple), become Buddhist followers in Baoguo Temple, develop a connection with Buddhism in Fuhu Temple, observe Buddhist Park at Qingyi Pavilion, worship Shakyamuni Buddha at Wannian Temple and consecrate statuettes of Buddha on the Golden Summit. People at home and abroad have regarded Mt. Emei-Leshan Giant Buddha as the “Holy Land” in their mind.
