Pier literally means a landing place for people to rest after a long ocean adventure. Sometimes, “Pier” will be described by poets as a spiritual state for peace and love. And this spiritual concept of “Pier” actually deeply rooted in Chinese culture. The modern Chinese poets and writers will use it as an emotional metaphor to describe all kinds of exciting emotional realms. On the other hand, the “Pier” concept can also be found in Buddhism for the description of life and deaths to convey messages for kindness and generousness.
