Charming Qingdao: Exquisite and unique "nine waters and eighteen pools"
Good mountains, good waters, good Qingdao, the exquisite and unique "nine waters and eighteen pools" lead you to linger!
The upstream river of Baisha River in Laoshan Mountain is named after its nine-fold mountains and nine-bend water. It originates from the water at the north foot of the huge peak and flows into the canyon. The peaks are beautiful, and the trees are glorious, and the beautiful scenery is endless, so it is known as "Jiushui Gallery". With the "Jiushui Boundary Bridge" of the North Kowloon Spa as the boundary, it is divided into nine waters inside and nine waters outside, with a total length of 9.5 kilometers. It is the canyon zone in the middle reaches of the Baisha River. There are a total of 18 bays in the inner and outer nine waters. The stream water will break when it meets a peak, and the break will turn into a deep pool, forming a landscape with different characteristics and different scenery. The Jiaoao Annals calls the view of the northern nine waters as: "The water is singing with the dragon, the stone is crouching with the tiger, the music picture, and the text is natural." Among the twelve views of Laoshan Mountain, the most beautiful and colorful one is the "nine water ripples". Huang Ju, a scholar in Jimo in the Qing Dynasty, wrote a poem praising: "The grotesque rocky road can be sealed, and the winding dragon can be seen in a river with nine curves. It is suspected that there is flax rice by the stream. How heavy is the body in Taoyuan.
In October last year, the Laoshan Wind Management Committee renovated the North Jiushui Scenic Area with gurgling water, treated the original 18 natural pools with special techniques, and built 9 observation bridges to ensure that visitors can still enjoy the beautiful natural landscape of Jiushui in the flood season.
Recently, the scenic spot has been opened. From the first water in the city to the Chaoyin Waterfall in the ninth water in the city. The 18 pools are different in size and shape. They are natural pools. After the experts have carried out the dredging and anti-seepage treatment on the bottom and wall of the pool, the storage of water has increased a lot, and the water quality has also improved a lot.
The nine observation bridges also have different flavors, including plane bridges, arch bridges, suspension bridges and other shapes, and the texture is also divided into stone, solid wood, steel plates and other different types. Each bridge is built by the designer according to the scenery, just like nature.
So what exactly is the exquisite and unique "Jiushui 18 Ponds"?
The "nine waters" are: the best, the most generous, the most generous, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best, the best.
The "eighteen pools" are respectively: Zhirou Pool, Jubei Pool, Unsealed Pool, Weishi Pool, Wuyu Pool, Wuji Pool, Self-drawn Pool, Juhua Pool, Zhongxu Pool, Youjian Pool, Duyu Pool, Yuyu Pool, Yuyu Pool, Wuji Pool, Wuji Pool, Buzhi Pool, Dining Xia Pool, Drinking Dew Pool, Qingxin Pool, and Xier Pool.
"The best good" is taken from Chapter 8 of Laozi's Tao Te Ching: "The best good is like water, the water is good for all things, and does not fight. It is the evil of all people, so it is less than the Tao. Living in a good place, the heart is good, and with good benevolence, good words, good faith, good governance, good things, and good actions. The only thing is not to fight, so there is nothing special." It means that the best in the world is like water, which inspires all things, but never compete with all things.
"The softest" is taken from "The softest in the world, the strongest in the world" in Chapter 43 of Laozi. Laozi talks about the philosophy of "Constant dropping wears away the stone". "The world should not be softer than water". Water seems to be weak, but even the hardest thing can be penetrated as long as a drop of water is clicked for a long time.

Chapter 10: "Holding one with the soul", Chapter 22: "Sage holding one is the world style" and Chapter 42: "Everything is negative yin and holds yang", which means that human essence, qi and spirit should be integrated. If they cannot be unified, life will be dangerous.

An unprecedentedly bright future
"Weishi" is taken from "Zhuangzi. Inner Part. Qi Wu Ji": "There is a beginning, there is a beginning, there is a beginning, there is a husband, there is a beginning." This sentence is a relationship that Zhuangzi explains the logic of the development of the universe. It means that the universe has a beginning, a beginning that has not started, and a beginning that has not started. The things people see are far from enough, and there is a higher source, which is the "Tao" of Taoism.
The word "generous" comes from "generous without corner" in Chapter 41 of Laozi. It means that there is no dead corner in the existence of "big", just like the universe, there is no edge. Laotse said, "There is no room for generosity, great talent is late, great music has the faintest notes, great form Is beyond shape, and Tao is unknown."
No corner pool
"Wuyu" is also taken from "generous Wuyu" in Chapter 41 of Laozi. It means that there is no dead corner in the existence of "big", just like the universe, there is no edge. Laotse said, "There is no room for generosity, great talent is late, great music has the faintest notes, great form Is beyond shape, and Tao is unknown."
"Wuji" is taken from "Return to Wuji" in Chapter 28 of Laozi. Lao Tzu believes that water nature is closest to Tao nature, and reminds people to learn water and practice Taoism, so that they can recover to the unity of Tao, return to the simple and pure state, and stick to the Middle Way. Lao Tzu said "keep the center" is "infinite".
"Qi Wu" is taken from Chuang Tzu's Internal Chapter, Qi Wu Lun. It means that all things have their advantages and disadvantages. There is no need to strive to argue between right and wrong. As long as all things are treated equally and placed in the same position, it is a moral expression.
"Self-extraction" refers to the words in "Chuang Tzu's Internal Part. The Theory of Qi Things", which means that the wind blows to different holes and has different sounds. The different sounds are completely taken from the hole itself. The wind has no different sounds. The idiom "take the blame for oneself" or "take the blame for oneself" has a similar meaning to "take the blame for oneself" here.
"Juhua" is taken from "Juhua with the times, but not willing to do anything" in Chuang Tzu Wai Pian. Shanmu. "Keeping pace with the times" means keeping pace with the times. The practical significance is that people should correctly understand the development laws of things, advance and retreat with the times, practice and survive according to the laws of objective things, and analyze specific things in a concrete way. They cannot make subjective assumptions, violate the objective rules of things, and take bitter consequences from themselves.
"Middle emptiness" is taken from Chuang Tzu's Internal Part. The Health-keeping Master: "There is a gap between those who are in the same section, and the blade has no origin, so there is a gap between those who are in the blade and those who are in the blade. There must be room for the recovery of the blade." "Middle emptiness" means that there is emptiness in the middle, which is quoted from the blister Ding Jieniu. This is to tell people that they should learn to hone themselves and find the space to play their strengths like a blade. Or it can be understood as being able to do things like a cook.
"Health preservation" originates from "Chuang Tzu's Internal Chapter", "My life has limits, and knowledge has no limits, so there is no limit." It means that a person's life is limited, but knowledge and ability are unlimited. This requires the pursuit of limitless knowledge and ability with limited life. Learning to use the environment, tools and laws to master knowledge and skills is one of the important principles of health preservation.

It tells people that they should learn to hone themselves and find the space to play their strengths like a blade. It is intended to remind everyone of the secret of "inaction" to maintain health and govern the country.
"Get fish" originates from "Chuang Tzu Miscellaneous. Foreign Things": "The judge is in the fish and forgets the fish; the hoof is in the rabbit and forgets the hoof; the speaker is concerned and proud to forget the words."

Don't immerse yourself in it any more. It's not good for health preservation.
Sit and forget
"Sitting and forgetting" comes from "Chuang Tzu's Inner Part. The Great Master": "Losing limbs, being taciturn and intelligent, and going out of shape to know, is the same as Datong, which is called sitting and forgetting." Chuang Tzu expresses the same great method of being in the same way by explaining sitting and forgetting. It means abandoning the desire of the body, eliminating the observation of the world, abandoning the self and returning to the internal world.
A pool without oneself

Among them, Cheng Xuanying, a Taoist thinker of the Tang Dynasty, explained that "the same name of Xuan" in Laozi, saying that "the profound meaning of Xuan is the name of non-stop", which said: "The person who has desire only stagnates in having, and the person who has no desire stagnates in saying one Xuan without reason to punish the two sticks". This contains rich, subtle and dialectical philosophy of life.
"Xiaoyao" comes from "Chuang Tzu's Internal Part. Xiaoyao Tour": "Frieze is generally good when he moves against the wind, but he will turn around five days later. He is the one who is lucky, but he is not counted. Although he can't do this, he still has to wait." Traveling with the wind is light and elegant, but after all, he depends on it. Taoism stresses that it is true to follow the nature of heaven and earth, take advantage of the air of heaven and earth, and travel in the infinite universe.
According to Li Bai's "Send to Meng Darong, a man from Wangwu Mountain", "I used to eat purple clouds at Laoshan on the East Sea, and eat them as early as a melon when I saw the Lord of Anqi." The word "food xia" here refers to the Taoist method of health preservation, but the meaning of eating qi in the valley is a way of cultivation.
Drinking Dew Pond
"Drink dew" is taken from "Chuang Tzu's Internal Part. Leisure Tour": "The mountain where the gods live in contempt of the Gu, the skin is like ice and snow, the grass is like a virgin, does not eat grain, and absorbs wind and drink dew." Taoism believes that dew is the purification of the sun and the moon, and if you take it for a long time, it can disperse into the air, and combine with the cloud to become an immortal.
"Anqi" comes from Li Bai's "To Meng Darong, a man from Wangwu Mountain": "... When you see Anqi Gong in person, you can eat as early as a melon". Anqi is also known as Anqi Gong, a native of Langyafu. It is said that the Taoist priest became immortal very early. He once talked with the First Emperor of Qin in Laoshan and preached, which means that the Taoist culture of Laoshan has a long history.
"Xier" comes from "Gao Shizhuan. Xu You": "Yao wanted to call me governor of Kyushu. He heard his voice badly, so he washed his ears". At that time, Yao wanted to be the official of the Kyushu Prefecture. Xu You heard his voice badly and ran to the pool to listen. Ear washing has become a representative of noble conduct.
"Qingxin" comes from Chuang Tzu. In Forgiveness, which said: When the emperor asked Guang Chengzi how to cure the body for a long time, he said: "The essence of the Tao is to be gentle and quiet. The extreme of the Tao is to be faint and silent. The tranquility of the mind is to be clear and free from your shape and shake your essence. It is to be immortal." Taoism believes that: tranquility is the foundation of the world, otherwise it will not be able to survive well, but it is not to let people have a clear mind and few desires, but to maintain a state of mind.
"Xu You" comes from "Chuang Tzu Miscellaneous. Wang Rang": "Yao conceded Xu You with the world, and Xu You did not accept it." Chuang Tzu's writings mentioned Xu You in many places. His moral character was noble. Yao tried to concede with the world, but Xu You refused to accept it, and hid himself in the cultivation of Mount Osmunda. Xu You has become a synonym for the Taoist thought of "valuing life with light things".
