Greetings venerable,

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

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.
