1. Incredible moment a pig is seen ‘praying’ outside a temple
It seems that humans aren’t the only ones who need forgiveness.
Bizarre footage has surfaced of a fugitive pig grovelling in front of a temple in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province. It was found when kneeling on its forelimbs at a temple in Tantou village, eastern China. Pictures and video of the bowing boar have spread like wildfire on Chinese social media, sparking a flurry of debates over what the animal was doing.
Images of this have spread like wildfire on social media, sparking a flurry heated debates on exactly what the animal was doing. Footage shows the animal kneeling on its forelimbs encircled by worshippers, as a Buddhist ceremony takes place inside the temple.
The saintly swine reportedly stayed put for hours, and only left the scene after a group of monks emerged from inside and chanted a Buddhist scripture towards it.
Discussions on the social media site WeiBo have seen some users propose the animal was seeking a pilgrimage for a Chinese New Year’s blessing. Others deduced the holy hog was merely seeking food or resting after an act of physical exertion. Another web user offered a more scientific explanation: the pig was suffering from a disease concerning a deficiency in vitamin E, which can lead to an inability to stand up on all fours and kneel on one’s front legs.
It was later revealed the 150kg pig has escaped from a nearby farm with two other cohorts in search of food
Meanwhile, the owner of the pig later revealed it had escaped his hog pen on the morning, apparently in search of food. Sadly, Mr Huang-who had raised the animal up to over 150 kilograms-ordered for the animal to be slaughtered upon being recaptured. ‘How bizarre! I’ve been raising pigs for so many years but I’ve never seen anything like this. I really shouldn’t have killed it!’ he said.
2. Little Dog at Shuri Kannondo Temple knows how to bow to Buddha
Japan At a Zen Buddhist temple in southern Japan, even the dog prays.
Mimicking his master, priest Joei Yoshikuni, a 1 1/2-year old black and white Chihuahua named Conan joins in the daily prayers at Naha’s Shuri Kannondo temple, sitting up on his hind legs and putting his front paws together before the altar.
Kenan is very smart, it only took a few days to learn how to bow to the Buddha, resulting in this immediately becoming a hot topic for everyone to discuss. Jiguo said: “This incident spread very quickly, attracting a lot of visitors to see.” Jiguo also said that every day Kenan not only knew how to participate in early evening prayers as usual, but also had breakfast and dinner at the right time, there was no way he could be persuaded to eat other foods.
Jiguo said; “I think it always sees me doing the same, it’s the same way to learn.” Now that Jiguo officially teaches Kenan to meditate, of course, this is very meaningful. “Basically speaking, I wanted to test it while I was meditating, whether it was quiet or not, of course, it couldn’t sit cross-legged like me,” he explains.
