Study on the Relationship Between Chanting Ceremony and Music in Chongqing Huayan Temple

Fang CHEN

Abstract


The ceremony is formed by two elements, namely the implicit belief system and the dominant theological behavior system. The religious belief imposes deep-rooted and fundamental restrictions to the theological behavior but must be realized based on the latter. They are integrated. The dominant theological behavior system combines multiple artistic elements in which music outstands. Music attaches itself to sutra to develop into a form of chanting with words and music as an integral and constitutes the plot structure according to specific Buddhist etiquette to engage itself in the ceremony and display its functions.
