WorldWatcher...it's a Temple Located in Richmond BC Canada...no wild animals unless you count the Christians in the church grounds next to the Temple
(he he he).
I can't go this weekend though, they have a special visitor this week.
They continue to do prayers to try to "appease" the spirit
My daughter is however taking the cam today to do a research project for school and I'll post some pictures/video of the Temple during daylight hours
for comparison to what I may get hopefully next weekend, once the guest has gone back to Taipei.
One marked difference between the Pureland Buddhists and the Zen Buddhists that I have noticed is the level of superstitious belief. Pureland
believers are really very superstitious.
I hadn't realized that it's actually a very big deal for them to allow me to film there with the intent of trying to catch" a ghost on video or
audio...the special guest is an older master from the Lin Yen Mountain Temple in Taipei and while it's not relative to the "spook" I bet they'll
do a few extra prayers while there.
The temple itself is massive and a new one is already in the works...triple the size of the current. This has created some bad feelings on this
particular strip of road as there are numerous Mosques, Temples and Churches along this strip (called church alley by the locals). There had been many
attempts to shut down the building of the new temple and a lot of ire over the plans to erect an massive statue of Buddha as well...that is still
being debated. They got the go ahead on a tentative basis and have already started laying things out on the new site.
Some Nuns think there may be more active spirits due to this new building taking place as well as some of the bad karma some visitors are bringing in
(the lawyers from the other churches etc...)
Who knows? Sorry for the delay none the less, but I'll post the pictures when I get the cam back and we'll plan for a nighttime shoot next
My conspirator's mind is also wondering how likely it may be that the ghostly activity may be a hoax to scare the Nuns out of building?? LMAO
There's a conspiracy everywhere it seems
I was disappointed that it was put off till next weekend but I'll keep you all up to date, and post what I get ASAP. It's a beautiful Temple to be
Whether it's truly haunted is another story...
