The alleged Kung Fu Hustler Shaolin abbot Shi Yongxin was seen early yesterday morning leading a hundred disciples to pray at the Great Buddha Hall for victims of the Tianjin explosions.
The solemn ceremony was aimed at praying for victims and warding off further disasters. Could have worked better.
In the afternoon, the group of Shaolin Buddhist monks also joined in a ceremony to help release souls from the dead, according to the Nandu Daily.
On the same day, dozens of Tianjin residents gathered at a local temple to pray for victims. We’ll let you decide which was more meaningful.
