"Pu An Hall." Beihai Park Tip by Guantanamera

Beihai Park, Beijing: 100 reviews and 180 photos

 
 

Pu An Hall, located on White Dagoba Island in Beihai Park, houses some rare tantric sculptures showing esoteric guardians enraptured...

It is absolutely stunning to see the intensity of sensuality in these sculptures... Buddhism is often misconstrued as asexual due to its emphasis on liberation from the bondage of desire... But in fact, the "middle way", as practiced in the tantric tradition, is a pathway between the austerities of asceticism and the excesses of hedonism...
