Lesson Transcript

鬼節
我對鬼節的唯一印象就是沿街邊燒紙。旅遊發展局在其網頁上這樣介紹“盂蘭節”——香港俗稱為鬼節,傳說農曆七月鬼魂可以到來人間,很多市民會在路邊焚燒冥紙香燭超渡遊魂,銅鑼灣摩頓台或佐治五世公園更有京劇上演,以超渡這些鬼魂。旅發局對很多香港節慶都有介紹,甚至包括一些較不為人熟悉的節慶,如猴王誕、譚公誕等,但都簡得厲害。彷彿說多了,便會破壞了這個節日,所謂的“一說便俗”對於旅發局嚟講,在路邊焚燒冥紙香燭和京劇上演就是這個節慶的特色。
我好奇,燒冥紙是怎樣來的呢?據說,蔡倫發明造紙,因而財源滾滾來。其兄嫂見財心起,東施效顰的造起紙來,由於急功近利,結果紙質差劣,無人問津。蔡倫嫂子心生一計,自己睡在棺材裡叫家人要哭得死去活來並同時焚燒賣不出去的紙。準備好後,她便趁鄰居都過來慰問的時候,忽然從棺材裡醒過來,說自己本已到了陰間,受盡折磨,後來家人燒了紙給她,原來這些,到了陰間,成了紙錢,有了這些紙錢,她可以免受折磨,更可以贖回性命,返回陽間。於是,燒冥紙給死去的人便成了一種民間習俗,以便他們在陰間有個錢傍身,可以穿得暖、食得飽。

Thanks for pointing this out. We'll be more careful preparing the lessons. They should be up by now.

This lesson, and a lot of the other audio blogs , is missing the trancript in the comments. The intro to all of the audio blogs says " trancript in first comment"
