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.

Chinese Regime Responible for Nobel Prize Winner's Death PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

Liu Xiaobo, the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Tiananmen Square Massacre protester, and promoter of the pro-democracy Charter 08 that cost him his freedom, and eventually his life, died on Thursday, 13th July from late stage liver cancer. He was 61.

In 2009, Liu was sentenced to 11 years jail for 'subversion' by the communist regime.

Liu won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010, but he was not permitted to travel to Norway to accept it.

He was the second person to receive the award while in prison - the other was the German pacifist Carl von Ossietzky, who won in 1935 while incarcerated in a Nazi concentration camp.

His wife, Liu Xia, was placed under house arrest and stopped from talking to the media.

In communist jail


Prisoners of conscience in communist China, are known for enduring inhuman torture and daily harsh treatment. Most of them are subjected to forced labour in prison. But during the early prison years, Liu Xiaobo boasted that China's prison system was not too bad, and he could also enjoy cigarettes in prison. Liu also posed in photos on a Chinese blog, which caused some confusion among Chinese people, because it is a luxurious prison condition that most Chinese had never imagined. Liu developed cancer whilst in jail and the illness was brought to the attention of communist authorities in Oct 2016, but he was not allowed treatment, according to Chinese blog, Creader.net, untill May 2017, by which time Liu's cancer was untreatable.

Responsible for death


The Nobel Committee said the Chinese government bore a "heavy responsibility for his premature death".

"We find it deeply disturbing that Liu Xiaobo was not transferred to a facility where he could receive adequate medical treatment before he became terminally ill," said former Norwegian Bar Association president Berit Reiss-Andersen.

Chinese artist and dissident Ai Weiwei told the BBC: "China is such a society [where] the government is very arrogant and will never listen or negotiate or tolerate these kind of ideas.
It's not only Liu Xiaobo - before him... millions lost their lives."

Family friend and fellow dissident Hu Jia said the authorities would not let him die in peace.

"To some extent, this was an attempt by the party to show their strength, to show that they control your life if you live in China," he said.

"But I think the historic message they are leaving is very different. By letting a Nobel peace prize winner die in custody they lost a chance to show humanity and instead proved their cold-blooded nature."
