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.

Why Did Beijing Censor Olympic Murder Reports? PDF Print E-mail

S Gregory   

During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, an American, the father-in-law of the coach of the US volleyball team, was murdered in front of his wife and daughter, but Chinese media were forbidden to report this.

On the surface, it appears logical that the Chinese regime has once again violated its promise about allowing free news reporting during the Olympics, as nobody really expected it to comply.

On 9th Aug, after the horrific incident happened, the US volleyball team held a news conference. Several Chinese reporters participating in the news conference had their articles confiscated, including some notebooks and a mini recorder. Also, the news of this murder was touched on very lightly or not at all Chinese websites. Some...
