Youning Temple, with the full name of Guolong Milezhou Temple in Tibetan language and Guolong Temple for short, is a holy place of Tu People in Huangshui Valley, Qinghai Province and regarded as “the mother of temples in Huangbei”. According to lunar calendar, every February 2nd the temple holds Request Sermons Ceremony that lasts fifteen days. Tu People are loyal believers in Lamaism, therefore, it is the most important thing at the beginning of a new year to visit Buddhism books and attend lectures given by eminent monks, of which the climax is “Tiao Shen” activity. The activity in the temple was learned in the 9th year of Yongzheng Emperor by 3rd Songbu Living Buddha Gaixibanjue’er from Tibet and passed down to now.
