新郑黄帝故里拜祖大典是中国第一批国家非物质文化遗产,“同根同祖同源,和平和睦和谐”是其永恒的主题。  随着近年来中国和世界经济、文化交往日益密切,黄帝故里拜祖大典已经传播到香港、澳门、台湾、美国和澳大利亚。

去年农历“三月三”“丁酉年澳洲华人华侨恭拜轩辕黄帝大典”在悉尼成功举办,受到各界的关注和好评,国内大媒体人民网,中新社,国际台,凤凰卫视,和讯网,河南电视台,郑州电视台等都作了报道。澳洲当地媒体也纷纷报道。

“三月三,拜轩辕”在悉尼隆重举行

2017年3月19日上午,在农历“三月三”来临之际,“澳洲华人华侨恭拜轩辕黄帝大典”在澳大利亚悉尼隆重举行。

本次澳洲拜祖大典活动沿用黄帝故里拜祖大典“同根同祖同源、和平和睦和谐”的主题,活动由中国国际文化交流协会和澳中爱而思文化交流协会主办,ABC Capital, Southern Skyline Consultant,澳大利亚川渝总商会、澳纽工商联合总会、澳大利亚妇女联合会、澳大利亚新州学联、中国人民大学悉尼校友会、澳大利亚黄河澳华合唱团、一号传媒协办。

来自澳洲各界二十多个侨社、文化团体共600多人参加了澳洲拜祖大典活动,通过恭拜中华人文共祖轩辕黄帝、传承中华优秀传统文化,祈愿世界和平!

还有精神饱满青春激扬的志愿者大队,是不是也很养眼?

澳洲华人华侨恭拜轩辕黄帝大典共九项仪程。其中包括狮舞迎拜,恭献花篮,帛谷进馔,高唱颂歌,乐舞敬拜等。

仪程中的重头戏祈福中华,来宾们纷纷在祈福牌上写下对中华的祝福,激动地悬挂在祈福树上。

最后,嘉宾们在十米书法长卷上庄重地签下了自己的名字;金色的彩纸漫天飞舞,如天女散花绚丽多姿,把拜祖大典推向高潮!

九项仪程之后的文化展演,每个充满了中国元素,体现了悉尼华人华侨的传统文化热情。第一个节目是福建同乡会的“少儿国学朗诵”,孩子们朗朗诵读《中庸》,让人不禁对长期坚持传承国学的洪永裕先生及夫人肃然起敬。

接着悉尼演唱歌手刘铁军气势昂扬地唱出“我是中国人”,获得了满堂喝彩。

张速老师带领的“太极”老师团队,动作优美,柔中带刚,太极原来也可以这么美。

民乐团体演出由各种乐器的高手及获奖歌手组成,既有乐队合奏又有歌曲联唱,精彩的演出赢得了现场嘉宾的热烈掌声。

 Introduction of Ceremony

Australia Chinese Ayers Association plans to organize a ceremony, aiming at commemorating the birth of the Yellow Emperor on 15 April in Sydney. In the ancient story, the Yellow Emperor, the ancestor of Chinese, taught ancient Chinese living skills including forming, cooking and creating the coach. Chinese are grateful for the contribution of the Yellow Emperor and commemorate him every year after he passed away, which become a traditional activity nowadays. At this time, magnificent cultural performances are prepared for the Commemorating Ceremony, in order to restore the process of the ancient commemorating activity. Additionally, this ceremony also provides a communication platform for people who are interested in Chinese traditional culture.
