    China and Fake... What part of China and Fake cant you understand?

    Points to ponder
    1)Now, fake monks from Hubei province roam a nearby scenic park that opened in 2009 and that tourists and pilgrims mistaken as part of the temple. The impostors get commission for collecting donations to the Shaanxi Famen Charitable Foundation.
    But clueless visitors do not know the foundation is a front for the operating company of the park, Shaanxi Famen Temple Scenic Park Cultural Industrial Group, and is not related to the temple, the weekly reported last week.

    2)When the park opened in 2009, it quickly became apparent that the massive project was not the goldmine it had promised to be for the government, and investors disappeared. In search for new capital, its operators set up an organisation, which could collect donations from Buddhist believers and bankroll the company.

    3)For 100 yuan to thousands of yuan, visitors can have their names carved on merit plates. Some 26,000 people have done so already, Southern Weekly calculated.
    In July, Zhao He, a woman from Qinghuangdao in northeastern Hebei province, said she spent some 111,000 yuan during a visit, including 9,999 yuan to cover "costs for chanting and blessing by a Buddhist master".
    When she found out that the park had nothing to do with the temple, she alerted police and was promised her money back.

    Spituality is like an Opium minus the side effects. Its good ....ooozzzaaa....ooooozzzzaaaa
    Spirituality shows you the way to freedom, to care, understanding and being selfless.
    Its teaches about "Peaceful Co-existance"

    So u equal B-ism a made-in-India product to spirituality? How many Indians now are B-ists? Why did B-ism decline in its origin India?

    Anyway thank u posting this re-affirming my conviction that B-ism is incompatible with superior Chinese civilization and a road block towards its renaissance.
