   On February 25th, a reporter from Chinanews.com visited the Taer Monastery in Qinghai, the holy place of Tibetan Buddhism, and felt the forty years of inheritance of the Tibetan art of the Taer Monastery by the “intangible heritage” inheritor India and Pakistan Jiancuo. The Taer Monastery in Qinghai is named after the tower was built first and then the temple was built. It is the birthplace of Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. The famous plateau flower “Ghee Flower” in this temple is similar to the colorful murals and three-dimensional Piling embroidery is collectively referred to as the “Three Wonders of Art”. India-Pakistan Jiancuo first studied Buddhist scriptures at the Kalachakra Temple in Ta’er Temple, and was later selected as an art monk for making “ghee flowers” in the upper flower courtyard of Ta’er Temple. He hopes to pass on his fingertip skills to more apprentices in the production of Caifen Kalachakra Mandala. (Finish)
