Summer at Langmu Temple, painting by Liang JunYan   Summer at Langmu Temple, original oil painting by Liang Jun Yan

Langmu Temple is a Tibetan Buddhist temple located in China's Gansu Province, which is just north of Qinghai Province, just north of Tibet.  The name literally means the fairy temple, and it is said that a fairy lived there in a tiger cave.

Liang and her friends, touring the area, met the little seven year old girl, in the painting, who was fascinated by their modern dress and, while shy about taking to them, finally warmed up and told them of her dream to someday attend the university in the big city.  She also lamented about how transportation, education and opportunity were limited in the western Tibetan regions of China.

Ali, portait by Liang Jun Yan 841. Ali's Experience and practice, original portrait paining by Liang Jun Yan (2009)

Part of Liang's journeys through the western Muslim and Tibetan Buddhist regions of China was to learn from those in other cultures.  When sitting down and talking with her new found friend Ali, she discovered that sometimes cultures that are very different are much the same.

“When Heaven is about to place a great responsibility on a great man, it always first frustrates his spirit and will, exhausts his muscles and bones, exposes him to starvation and poverty, harasses him through troubles and setbacks, so as to stimulate his spirit, toughen his nature and enhance his abilities.” Thus, it is not easy to be a great man. Ali is a business man, who is talking to us about his life and about how he became successfull. From the wrinkles on his face, we can tell how much experience and practice he has been through in his journey.

Liang was so taken by him that she did two portraits: this one with him in white, in profile, and another one with him wearing red, and face on.

Like a Sister, original portrait by Liang Jun Yan   Like a Real Sister, original oil painting portrait by Liang Jun Yan

In China, people call their cousins sisters and brothers, so, often, if someone outside the family proves to be a true friend, which is very rare, one will think of them just as a brother or a sister, instead of just as a friend.
         
               
Old Tibetan Woman, painting by Liang Jun Yan 845. Looking Back, oil portrait painting by Liang Jun Yan

Liang met this old woman in Laboleng Temple, one of the six largest Buddhist temples, in Gansu Province.  The woman had been traveling by foot, for over a month, and, by this time, she could hardly remember all of the temples, glacial mountains, and pristine lakes she had come across.  Although her body was tired, her heart was elated as she was making this pilgrimage for her family and for the afterlife, and she was sure that God would bless her for the hardships that she endured on this journey of the spirit.
