中華九鼎藝術家協會『蓮花藝術之旅』

 

中華九鼎藝術家協會-淨水琉璃賞蓮之旅

首站:宜蘭淨水琉璃

  宜蘭九股山脈得天獨厚,山海交會東北季風帶來海洋元素,經過山林過濾,化為純淨的生命之泉灌溉睡蓮花田,成為魚蓮共生的純淨土地。山泉帶來豐富的生命,水中動植物的排泄物與腐蝕層,化為天然的有機養分,成為滋養睡蓮的肥沃淨土。淨土孕育新生的母親之花,「花果同在」是睡蓮有性生殖的特性,睡蓮歷經三開三合,陰陽調和,子房中蘊藏著滿滿的營養與種子,即將再次開出無數美麗的花朵,是母親再造生命的力量。

  蓮花餐、蓮化美容、蓮花寫生、蓮化呼吸法,在淨水琉璃,我們體驗了蓮花的種種神奇奧妙,眾人們都感到身心愉悅,帶著歡喜的心情來到五峰旗瀑布。

 

次站:宜蘭五峰旗瀑布

  五峰旗瀑布是礁溪境內最著名的風景點,由於瀑布後方有五座山峰並列,像極了三角形的旌旗,故名為「五峰旗」。此處共有三層瀑布,在青山翠谷中淙淙的飛瀑,令人心曠神怡。最下層的第三層瀑布下方有個小水潭可以戲水,若順著步道往上走約15分鐘可抵達第二層瀑布,瀑布旁設有「五峰亭」能將瀑布美景盡收眼底,若要到第三層瀑布則需再走30~40分鐘左右,而登山步道途中有一條岔路可以到達聖母亭及聖母山莊朝聖。

  一天的行程就在蓮花與瀑布的洗禮下,劃下完美的句點。中華九鼎藝術家協會的第一次出遊,留下難忘的旅程!

Perched on the juxtaposed five peaks. Looks like the triangular flags, therefore, in Chinese name as Wufongci, one of the famous scenic spots in Chiaohsi township. This unusual and striking waterfall floods out to three different height astonishing waterfalls. Just by standing there, we felt intoxicated of the sound gurgling out of the water, like a feather flying high up the sky, calm and peace.

 

There is one waterfall pool beneath, swimming and cooling down in the pool is always a good idea. Strolling along the trail, in just about 15 minutes can up to a height of 98 feet waterfall. Once you get there, take a bird's eye view from the Wufong pavilion that amuse yourself. People are usually encouraged to keep climbing to the top waterfall, it required 30 to 40 minutes walk.
