Greetings venerable,

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

:anjali: :buddha1:

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

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.
