The origin of the low door of the house
built low door house is actually a means of preventing intrusion of the walking dead. “Walking corpse” is the Tibetan language, and “weak man” refers to a person who gets up and rushes around after death to endanger the living. The so-called “weak man” is neither a resurrection nor a corpse. The “weak man” used by the Tibetans refers to those who are evil or hungry after their deaths, and have regrets for the rest of their sins. Therefore, they get up after death to complete the remnants of the evil life or seek unearned food. But it can only be achieved when its body is intact.
Since corpse harbinger
of many old and celestial burial masters said they had seen from the corpse, and have seen many times. But the corpse is not sudden, but has a warning in advance. The corpses that were about to rise had swollen faces, purple-black skin, upright hair, and blisters on their bodies, then slowly opened their eyes and sat up, then got up and raised their hands and ran straight forward. All corpses have a common feature: they can’t speak, they can’t bend down, they can’t turn around, they can’t even turn their eyes, and they can’t run straight forward. If you encounter a living person, you can “touch the top” with your stiff hands when you pick up the dead body, so that the living person will die immediately and also turn into a dead body. This bizarre and terrifying effect is limited to the living human body, and is ineffective to other animals.
It is often said that there are five types of corpses: the first skin and the second. These two types of corpses are caused by their skin or flesh. The third type is called “Blood Resuscitation”, this type of resuscitation is caused by its blood. These three types of corpses are easier to deal with. Just use knives, guns, arrows and other instruments to poke the flesh and let the blood go out to make the body fall to the ground immediately without harming people. The fourth type is called “bone resuscitation”, that is, the main factor that causes such resuscitation is in the bones, and it can only be dealt with by hurting the bones. The fifth type is called “mole up”, that is, the reason why he turns into a corpse is a certain mole on his body. This is the most difficult type of corpse to deal with. Before he hits its mole, he will go around and injure people.
According to legend, in the past, the abbot of a monastery in Tibet died. All monks in the monastery placed his body in the main hall of the temple, and then everyone sat in the hall to chant and pray day and night, without closing their eyes for three consecutive days and three nights. On the third night, the monks who were exhausted from reading could not help falling to sleep, snoring like thunder. One of the timid little monks was not sleepy because of fear, and stared at the body of the abbot. In the middle of the night, he suddenly found that the zombie was sitting up. The little monk was so scared that he forgot to call the monks to wake up, and slammed the temple door and left for his life. As a result, hundreds of monks in the whole temple turned into corpses overnight. They couldn’t get out of the temple gate, they just ransacked inside the temple and turned upside down.
Later, a hermit with boundless magical power discovered the unmanageable scene. He was wearing a robe, holding a magic weapon, and chanting spells. He came to the temple alone and opened the temple door to perform a magic dance. Walking slowly, the corpses were also dancing behind him and followed closely. They gradually came to a river, the hermit led the corpses on the wooden bridge, and then took off the robes and threw them into the river, so the corpses followed the robes and jumped into the heart of the river and never got up.
Whether it is reality or legend, this has undoubtedly cast an invisible pressure on the hearts of Tibetans. In order to prevent the horrible resuscitation and rushing people, according to the characteristics that the resuscitation cannot bend, the kind of low-door house is specially designed and built as an obstacle for the resuscitation.
From the corpse’s hometown
famous Hoh Xil area due to lack of cold and oxygen plants, living in this region of shepherds, as forced by circumstances, can only be wandering around, nomadic, every few days to move a home, died in Nomadic state. The people there did not have a stable settlement during their lifetime, nor did they have a fixed celestial burial platform after death. At the same time, there are no temples and no monks in these areas, not to mention the complicated funeral ceremonies. People generally practice wild burials and abandoned burials. This burial custom of nomadic tribes is more likely to cause corpses. Although they couldn’t build low doors to resist the corpse, people also took some corresponding measures when there was no other way. For example, when the corpse, especially the corpse with signs of corpse, is thrown into the wild, a rope should be tied to a natural stone pile or large boulder to prevent the corpse from running away to harm people. Nevertheless, corpses often occur. People often encounter corpses.
There is a shepherd named Myerta in Sima Township under the jurisdiction of Amdo County. The female slave of his family lives under the Jiaerbu Mountain. Because of her poverty, she has never even had a name. People named her the name of the mountain where she lives. Old lady.
One day in the early spring of 1967, Granny Garb finally ended her miserable life and lay quietly in the tattered little tent that could only accommodate herself. Although this place is in the heart of the county, and in different remote areas, she can be sent on the road to the place of life with a crisp bell, but because she is single, she can’t enjoy the treatment that she deserves at the end of her life. Dallo, a high-ranking monk and the celestial burial master of the Andoma Temple, went to chant for her out of compassion and sent to the celestial burial.
When they came to her, the poor old lady showed half of her face out of her collar, closed her eyes, half of her cracked mouth, her skinny body took up all the space in the tent, and the monks and celestial burial masters had to borrow from the shepherd’s house. One corner chanting. While reciting the scriptures, the eminent monk asked the celestial burial master to look at the body of the old woman. When the burial master went to look at that day, he found that the old lady’s head was all exposed outside the collar. The second time he went to look at it, the old lady had already sat up sideways with
his eyes open… He quickly told the monk about the situation. The eminent monk immediately blew the horn of human bones and used tantric magic to break the blood. After a while, he saw blood flowing from her nostrils, and then fell down to restore her original calm. It can be seen that she belongs to the “blood from” category. For some reason, when they carried the old woman’s body on horseback to the sky burial platform, they found that her body was heavier than any corpse. It was so heavy that the strong male horse had fallen down several times on the road. This is what the celestial burial master Dallo saw with his own eyes, and he also said it himself.
