When Sakyamuni was on his way into the high mountains in his quest for understanding and enlightenment, he grew tired and hungry. Exhausted from days of walking, he passed into unconsciousness by a river in India. A shepherdess found him there and fed him her lunch porridge made with beans and rice. Sakyamuni was thus able to continue his journey. After six years of strict discipline, he finally realized his dream of full enlightenment on the eighth day of the twelfth lunar month. 自那时起，僧侣们便在腊八的前夜准备米粥，并在腊八当天举行颂经和敬奉佛祖仪式。 Ever since, monks have prepared rice porridge on the eve and held a ceremony the following day, during which they chant sutras and offer porridge to Buddha 腊八吃什么🍲 提起“腊八节”，大概多数人头脑中闪现的第一个念头就是“喝腊八粥”。腊八这一天有吃腊八粥的习俗，腊八粥也叫七宝五味粥。不同地区腊八粥的用料虽有不同，但基本上都包括大米、小米、糯米、高粱米、紫米、薏米等谷类，黄豆、红豆、绿豆、芸豆、豇豆等豆类，红枣、花生、莲子、枸杞子、栗子、核桃仁、杏仁、桂圆、葡萄干、白果等干果。 When talking about "Laba Festival", probably the first idea that most people flash in the mind is "to drink rice porridge".
