Tingting YAN, Juan SHI

Abstract


Buddhist music was introduced into China along with Buddhism. Since the introduction of Buddhist music, it has combined with local folk music in China and has gradually formed a kind of Buddhist music with special local characteristics. Chongqing Luohan Temple is one of the famous Buddhist shrines in China. Since the 1980s, the Buddhist music of Chongqing Luohan Temple has been recorded and collected in academia. This paper intends to select the old music version of Yoga flaming mouth ceremony in 1987 and the new version in 2012, and find the conservatism and evolution of Buddhist music in Chongqing Luohan Temple by comparing with the two versions: the conservative form of the Buddhist music shows the continuation of the Buddhist music of Chongqing Luohan Temple; the spiritual transformation of the Buddhist music shows the evolution of the Buddhist music of Chongqing Luohan Temple; the Buddhist music of Chongqing Luohan Temple has educational characteristics that are the unity of cultivating humanity and artistry, the unity of external convention and internal morality, and the unity of paying attention to results and focusing on the process.
