A hero with a heart

Ani, born in Dege County, Ganzi Prefecture. This is the birthplace of Kamba culture and the home of King Gesar, and epic legends are widely spread here. The colorful prayer flags fluttered in the wind, and the devout believers recited the scriptures like a pure land, never disturbed by the noise. Here is the Yinjingyuan, which symbolizes the wisdom of Tibet, here is the towering Cheer Mountain, here is the new road and sea like Bitan, and there are also hardworking and kind Tibetan people. If you pay attention to Dege's local propaganda materials or school culture logos, you will often see the eight characters: "smart, diligent, and degli". This is the cultural symbol of Dege in the core area of KMB It is engraved on the numerous stones in Dege County, and it is apparent in the actions of Dege people.

Mr. Ani is a typical representative of practicing the core culture of "brilliance, diligence, and dedication" with his life.

I later learned that Mr. Ani is a national intangible cultural heritage and a folk rap artist who still specializes in Gesar rap. It can be said that he is a person who will inherit the "Gesar Rap" as his lifelong career. So far, he has insisted on teaching "Gesar Rap" to his classmates in Dege County Middle School. Because he had a hero in his heart, and this hero was the king of Gesar, who was regarded as a god by the Tibetan people.

Mr. Ani was born in 1949 when the People's Republic of China was founded. His parents are ordinary herders. Due to family conditions, he never received formal school education. During his childhood, a living Buddha in a temple near the village taught him only the basic 30 Tibetan letters. Since then, he began to study hard until one day at the age of 16. According to him, that day he grazed on a hillside in his hometown. He lay on the hillside and saw the yaks in the mountains and mountains, lost in thought, and then went to sleep. In his dream, he saw a white-faced general riding a white horse, wearing a battle robe, and holding a whip, and told himself that from now on, you have to sing and share my story as a lifelong career. He was shocked and asked, "Who are you?" And replied, "That Zhumaiqingweiga." Then he went away. The dream woke up immediately.

It was this dream that planted the seeds of heroes in his heart, and with the continuous learning of Gesar's deeds and further understanding of Gesar's heroic spirit, the hero's seeds took root in his heart and eventually became a will Man with hero in mind.

Getting up at 4 am every day to read "The Story of Gesar" is his constant work for decades. And telling the "Gesar story" to the world is what he is most willing to do. Even in the extremely difficult 1960s and 1970s, he still wandered on the snowy plateau and sung heroic stories in special ways in Tibet. In this insistence, he may be lonely, and this loneliness has repeatedly and repeatedly tempered his heart, making his heart stronger, more resilient, more determined, and more accessible. "happy". Because in his day-to-day chanting, he already regarded himself as the incarnation of King Gesar. His life was fulfilled with the spirit of Gesar. Gesar's story is a strange combination of humanity. Each of his mentalities is positive and kind, and can never harm himself and the world in all struggles, and thus will always be a progressive and beneficial person for victory. Perhaps because of this, in the extremely harsh snowy plateau of the natural environment, compatriots of all ethnic groups sang hero stories from generation to generation, carried forward the hero spirit, and created a hero legend belonging to the Tibetan people. .

In order to better promote the inheritance work, since 2009, Mr. Ani has picked up the carving knife again and started Gesar such as "Tianling Buyi", "Birth of a Hero", "Occupy Ma Yu", "Seven Horse Races" and "Big Ingredients". Engraving works on epic literature. After 6 years, this work was finally completed in 2014, with a total of 5 books and 336 printing plates. More than 117,600 yuan were spent before and after the sculpting work, all funded by Mr. Ani. After the engraving of the printing plate was completed, it was donated to Dege Printing Academy. As he said, the epic of King Gesar belongs not only to the Kham area, but to all human beings.

With the continuous improvement of Mr. Ani's rap career in "King Gesar", his influence in the rap industry in Tibet and the entire "King Gesar" has expanded. He has been rated as county, state, province and national level. "Representative heir to the intangible cultural heritage project Gesar", was invited to participate in cultural and art performances at all levels, was invited to lecture at Sichuan University, Southwest University for Nationalities, Sichuan University for Nationalities, etc., to Sichuan People's Broadcasting The radio station and the Central People's Broadcasting Station's Tibetan language program recorded programs, performed "Gesar Rap" performances in "Hong Kong, Taiwan" and other places, and even visited Britain, Japan and other countries to exchange Gesar Rap. Teacher Ani still remembers that when he was visiting Japan, a Japanese scholar asked him: "Where is King Gesar?" He replied with great pride: "King Gesar is China and the world!" Answered, and received warm applause from the participants.
