Lesson Transcript

佛誕
香港人非常信佛。無論做生意的,揸的士的,抑或是蒲黑社會的,無一例外,全部都求神拜佛。平民百姓家裡一般都設一個神台,如果不是供奉自己的祖先長輩,就一定是供奉著各路神明,具體就得看你從事的職業了。比如說警察一定拜的是“關二哥”,自己開店的肯定拜的是“財神爺”。我家裡也有個神台,供奉的是我家祖先的靈位,每天吃飯之前都要給他上柱香,以示尊敬。當然,要體現佛在我們心中的重要性,不得不說就是經典電影《無間道》裡開篇第一場戲——曾志偉在一個廟裡拜了個佛,然後轉身講——算命佬話我呢條命係“一將功成萬骨枯”⋯⋯ 幾豪氣啊!
就是因為廣東人如此信佛,佛誕就顯得格外重要了,以致於香港將她定為公眾假期。每年的農曆四月八日,大家就會一早起身,去黃大仙啊、觀音廟啊、各處寺廟裡拜拜,裝香還神。

maybe instead of putting "cantonesepod101.com" a bunch of times in the lesson intro, you could tell readers what the date for Buddha's birthday is, or at least something meaningful.


The lesson intros on this site, and pretty much all of the affliate sites , such as Japanesepod101, and Chinesepod101, are all WAY too long, and basically meaningless.
