Almost everyone has their own theories about UFO’s. It seems that no matter what you're race, gender, or even your religion is,there is a UFO story for you. This time, a Buddhist monk tells us his own UFO story. The monk goes by the name of Hsu Yun, also known as Xu-Yun. He described his unforgettable experience with the interesting topic that never goes out of style, UFO. One thing that makes his story more controversial is due to the fact that this monk is actually regarded as the Buddhist Idol.
Hsu Yun is also regarded as a living legend as he got to inspire Chinese Buddhist and by the time he passed on to the next life, he even got recognized as one of the most recognizable Han-Chinese Buddhists in the middle kingdom, he lived for 119 years. He is known as a Buddhist idol and has two orders named after him. The great Xu-Yun (虛雲) was born in 1840 and he lived to witness the last five reigns of the Manchu Dynasty. Xu-Yun got even more recognized when he went on to rescue Chinese Buddhism from its dangerous decline by managing to revive and refresh it, founding and restoring temples, schools and even hospitals. The UFO story is said to be originated from an Autobiography of a famous Chan Buddhist of which Hsu Yun was an influential Buddhist master.It was then discovered by Sanjin Đumišić, a Swedish writer, photographer, composer as he was reading the autobiography of the Chan Buddhist. Sanjin discovered the account of Hsu-Yan and his visit to the Da-luo peek in 1884 as he was on the way to pay respects to the “wisdom lamps”
"At the end of the Great Prayer Meeting, I climbed the Da-luo Peak, where I paid reverence to the ‘wisdom lamps’ said to appear there. I saw nothing the first night but on the second, I saw a great ball of light flying from the Northern to the Central Peak, where it came down, splitting a short while later into over ten balls of different sizes. The same night, I saw on the Central Peak three balls of light flying up and down in the air and on the Northern Peak, four balls of light which varied in size.
On the tenth day of the seventh month I paid reverence and offered thanks to Manjusri Bodhisattva and then descended the Mountain. From Huayan Peak I walked northwards and arrived at Da-ying, south of Hun-yuan, where I visited the Northern Peak of Mount Heng which I climbed by way of Hu-feng Pass. There, I saw a stone arch with the inscription, ‘The First Mountain of the Northern Regions’. When I arrived at the temple, I saw a flight of steps which was so high that it seemed to lead to heaven, and a forest of stone tablets and arches. I made an offering of incense and descended the mountain.".
The said descriptionmay refer to what is ultimately hard to understand or even imagine, there has to be an unusual account that has yet to repeat itself but the story of Xu-Yun's witnessing these mysterious fireballs at a Buddhist monastery was constructed.
