Why Did the Leshan Giant Buddha Cry 4 Times? Is It a Sign?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Carved out of a cliff face, the Leshan Giant Buddha is a statue with slightly opened eyes that benevolently overlooks the confluence of several rivers. But occasionally the Buddha has been seen crying, amazingly with its eyes closed!

The stone statue is 233 feet tall, and was built in the Tang Dynasty in Sichuan Province where the Minjiang, Dadu, and Qingyi rivers meet.

It is a sculpture of Maitreya, and construction took 90 years to complete. It was placed there in the hope passing ships would make it safely through the turbulent waters.

Mao’s great famine

The first time the statue was seen crying was at night in 1962. A photo of the close-eyed Buddha can still be seen at the Leshan Exhibition Hall. It was just after the Great Chinese Famine from 1959 to 1961 during the rule of Mao Zedong. Of the 35 million people who perished, at least 7 million were in Sichuan. With no strength to dig graves, people simply wrapped corpses up in a mat and threw them into the rivers. The Buddha closed his eyes for the first time as thousands of dead bodies flowed down from upstream to the confluence.

The Chinese Communist Party sent a team of scientists to investigate. Naturally, they came up with no answer, and no report was ever released. The Buddha was then “restored” with open eyes again.

The Cultural Revolution

The second time it happened was the following year in 1963, which marked the start of the insane Chinese Cultural Revolution. Again, the Party ordered that the statue be fixed.

Strangely enough, despite spending almost $6.5 million on the renovation work, the tear marks couldn’t be removed!

In July 1976, the eyes closed for a third time. It was after the 7.8 magnitude Tangshan earthquake in Sichuan in which about 650,000 people died due to lack of warnings, and the regime’s refusal of international aid.

As well as crying with closed eyes, the Buddha also had an angry look.

Tears turn to smiles

On June 7, 1994, the Buddha was again seen grieving. Both tourists by the statue and on passing cruise boats reported seeing the phenomenon, and that the Buddha’s face, jaw, and body appeared to be shaking.

However, when a particular cruise boat docked, people saw that the Buddha started to smile, even though the tears were still on its face.

A very special master and some of his disciples came by boat to witness the spectacle. When one of his disciples asked why the Buddha was crying, the master answered: “The Buddha told me that people today have no respect for the Buddhas. He is worried about them.”

The Buddha apparently smiled because he saw hope was on the way.

      He cried because he knew Obmaa was the Antichrist. The Apocalypse has come sadly.

        Raw juice from celandine in the right amounts cures cancer. According to Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov, vodka dries your brains. Smoking is censer for the devil. People who use drugs see demons who cleverly disguise themselves as aliens. Vaccines contain cells of aborted fetuses and nanochips. Chanting mantras leads to demon possession. It’s not the words that get you possessed; it’s the rhythm. “He who is able to pray correctly, even if he is the poorest of all people, is essentially the richest. And he who does not have proper prayer, is the poorest of all, even if he sits on a royal throne” – St John Chrysostom. When you look directly into the eyes of the figure depicted on an Orthodox icon, energy is coming your way, that is, you get healed. If you correctly sign yourself with the sign of the cross, your blood is purified. Charging interest (like to a bank) is wrong; if you keep money in the bank at interest, give it (interest) back to the bank. Don’t keep money in the bank in the first place. Live off the land. Buy a she-goat with chickens. Plant cucumbers and potatoes. “Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face. As smoke vanisheth so let them vanish; as wax melteth before the fire, so let the demons perish from the presence of them that love God and who sign themselves with the sign of the Cross and say in gladness: Rejoice, most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, for Thou drivest away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ Who was crucified on Thee, Who went down to hades and trampled on the power of the devil, and gave us thee, His precious Cross, for the driving away of every adversary. O most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, help me together with the holy Lady Virgin Theotokos, and with all the saints, unto the ages. Amen.” /library_en/pr1.html If you cross your head (back of the head, front of the head, right temple, left temple), then the headache will go away. Plus blood is purified. To make upright perpendicular cross: using your right hand in the following way (picture below) cross yourself: touch firmly your forehead and say “In the name of the Father”, touch firmly above belly button and say “and of the Son”, touch firmly right shoulder and say “and of the Holy”, touch firmly left shoulder and say “Spirit”. Hand down: “Amen.” To break any curse pray the Psalm “The LORD is my light and my salvation”, slowly, 40 times a day, for 40 straight days; that’s 1600 times in total. Get rid of all barcodes. Get rid of all Occult stuff. Don’t sin. Don’t judge. Please, consider this. Adam and Eve had 5 kids from three tries (in this order): twins Cain and Luluwa, twins Abel and Aklia, and Seth. Adam and Eve wanted to cross-marry the twins, but Cain wanted to marry his beautiful twin-sister Luluwa; so, he killed Abel and married Luluwa. Later Eve gave birth to Seth who married Abel’s twin-sister Aklia. There was no so-called “first wife of Adam named Lilith”; and if Luluwa means Lilith, then she was Adam’s daughter, not his wife as someone might suggest (Adam knew only Eve and Eve knew only Adam). I’m not judging Cain, but in this instance, marrying his twin sister is incest (sodomy). Seth married Abel’s twin sister (which is not incest in this case because she wasn’t Seth’s twin sister). This is my opinion, based on the Forgotten Books of Eden. Note, incest now = sodomy. Paisios said that the Book of Revelation is read today as if it were a newspaper. Ever heard of the law of telegony aka law of first male? Most thoughts and dreams are from demons; demons never do good. Sleep fully clothed; pray the Jesus prayer; talk to your local Orthodox Christian priest. Orthodox Christian nuns dress appropriately. When a man dresses up as girl, demons of homosexuality get attached to him; and vice versa. Only lawful relationship is between husband and wife. Fornication, adultery, and sodomy are big sins. Oral, anal, masturbation, surrogacy, contraceptives, fetishes, etc. are always forbidden. Contraceptives are early abortion. Aborted kids go to hell for 33 and a half years; for each aborted a demon is released from hell. Abortion leads to breast cancer. Antichrist’s people walk naked. Christ’s people walk clothed. Women have long hair. Woman wears a head-scarf tied at the front. Women don’t wear make-up because it’s made from cells of aborted fetuses and it puts a stain on the image of God. Women don’t wear pants. Women wear non-revealing dresses. Men wear pants. Men have short hair and beards. Orthodox Christian priests have long hair and untrimmed beards. Also, sleep fully clothed. Demons pretend to be ghosts and aliens. Don’t go into UFO to be healed by evil demons. Reject new documents and vaccines. Don’t eat sugar and meat. Take cold showers. Heresy leads to loss of love. Rapture is a heresy. You have to hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666. Reject globalism, UFOs, documents, vaccines, ecumenism, cities, technology, etc. The only true Christians are people who rejected mark of the beast documents and drink blood of Jesus. Note, some churches serve antichrist’s blood. So, choose wisely. Read the Book of Revelation. It’s all clear now anyway if you have wisdom to understand that 2 elongated lines on a barcode is a 6. Each barcode has 3 double elongated lines. Hence, it spells 666. Barcode on documents leads to temporary hell. Barcode on one’s body by isotope rays leads to permanent hell. According to Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov, 666ed people will first hide the green 666 with durags and long sleeves, but then openly will walk with shiny green 666 on their foreheads or wrists. God gives you a name during baptism. Devil gives you an anti-name during anti-baptism. Barcode is Druid black magic curse and a form of mark of the beast just like Social Security. People who took any number (which is an anti-name given during anti-baptism by the beast) on documents or in computer go to temporary hell; but those who receive green 666 (given with World Passport with no name on it) on forehead or wrist go to permanent hell. How not to go to hell? Give back all these anti-name anti-baptism documents back to the beast by writing to appropriate authorities. If authorities refuse to cancel these anti-names, then write again (up to three times). If you wrote to the gov’t three times about it, but gov’t refused, then God will not send you to hell. Don’t take the microchip. If you already took it, get rid of it because microchipped people will be influenced by computers to take the World Passport (grey plastic card with no name on it). Don’t go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Those who reject 666 will go to heaven. Also, their direct ancestors will be saved from hell. All who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ or sign themselves with sign of the cross during WW3 will be saved. War in Ukraine will last two years (2014 – 2016). Then WW3 will start. Then Tsar will come to power in Russia to protect people from the antichrist. Antichrist will allow all sin. Don’t sin. God is merciful but 666 is not forgivable. 666 is given with grey plastic card. Food stores, prisoners, and police will 666 people too. Don’t get new documents. Don’t get any surgeries. Don’t eat meat. Don’t eat fast food. Don’t eat junk food. Pray the Jesus prayer: “Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.” Don’t go into UFO to be healed by evil demons. Feed the pigeons. Give to charity in the name of Archangel Michael. Reject vaccines. Hide with Orthodox Christians to escape mark of the beast. There is an opinion that new adviser phones will administer it. Demons confessed that TVs, computers, phones, etc.administer it already. Antichrist’s next target is the Statue of Liberty. One big shake, one giant step forward, one giant collapse. You use your spirit to talk to God. Demons attack soul and body. Demons live inside clones. Jesus died for all sins committed by all. Jesus said that you have to drink His blood. All people have soul, body, and spirit. In animals, blood substitutes soul. That’s why you’re forbidden to drink animal blood. Animals don’t have spirit. You’re forbidden to drink human blood (like during blood transfusion) because sins transfer. You’re told to drink blood of Jesus (because He’s sinless) so that your sins are forgiven. Dogs are not allowed in your home and your church because the Holy Spirit will leave. One can receive mark of the beast because of cats; so, stay away from cats. Give to charity in the name of Archangel Michael; he rescues people from hell twice a year (or brings them up a level, that is, to a level with less punishment; eventually, people are freed). Feed the pigeons; when pigeons bow down, people are saved from hell. Birds participate in time creation. It’s a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level. They will get out through sinkholes and lakes. To kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Since antichrist (born to a 12th generation prostitute, flying, big-nailed, gloved, pale-faced, red-eyed, Satan-possessed since he’s 12 years old, homosexual man from the tribe of Dan, who wears blue robe over left shoulder while red/pink robe is underneath just like Jesus, and is surrounded by demons but people see angels of light) is around, there is no need for disputes. Forgive me.
