Pig Worships In Front of Temple

On the Fourth day of the Chinese New Year of the Sheep, a pig stole the show in front of a temple in Tatou village, Yongjia Bridge Town, Wenzhou province, clearly doing the gesture of worshiping by kneeling. Onlookers were moved by its gesture, chanting a buddhist mantra for the pig. Onlookers presumed that the pig hoped to gain a human body in the next life, so he or she could obtain the Buddhist teachings.

A video of the pig worshipping, was uploaded by a Chinese blogger the next day and attracted 7.7million viewers in the first 24 hours.

Some people tried to move the pig away, but the pig did not want to leave the temple, and kept kneeling. So monks in the temple came out and conducted a Buddhist ceremony for the pig, praying for a better after-life.

After the monks completed the ceremony for the pig, the pig left.

2 days later, the owner of the pig, Mr Huang alerted the media that it was one of his three pigs that ran away on Sunday morning, He found the three pigs later in the day, and sent them to the abbattoir that evening! He was so surprised and regretted his action after watching the TV news....but was too late. Mr Huang said that he would not have sent it to be killed if he knew what had happened in front of temple.

But some people said that the pig might be better off now as its wish maybe fulfilled.?

This leads to an old news report in China in 1923.
