Greetings venerable,

That is indeed cool... I just hope that he's paying homage rather than partaking in micchā patthanā

:anjali: :buddha1:

Metta,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.

The reporter comment seems a bit out of the Buddhist context:

Hua Chi once prayed up to 3,000 times a day on the same spot, to ensure his soul makes a smooth transition in the afterlife.

Greetings,

Well that would be micchā patthanā (wrong wishing).

As I said, I hope that's not the case.
