Holy Pig worshiping before the Buddhist temple in China
While in the ancient mythology animals are seen protecting the various elements of earth as animal Gods, In today's world they are nothing but mere slaves of human greed and selfishness as they are abused and killed for fun, food and various other unforgivable acts like clothing, jewelries and other accessories and yet all they ask is for love and acceptance. While few animals manage to enjoy being pets other domesticated animals that face harsh climates are the farm animals which are just considered a mere commodity with a few exceptions. Well in a rare encounter a farm pig managed to escape from its hog pen in early hours at Tantou village in eastern China's Zhejiang province. What was fascinating was what it did after the escape, the pig was seen doing what humans would call the worshiping pig as it was seen kneeling on its forelimbs and praying before the Buddhist temple of Tantou village while the worshipers shocked by such a rare sighting of an animal praying before a temple surrounded the pig and clicked pictures of it as the huge pig continued to pray in its kneeling posture.

The holy pig continued to pray in its kneeling posture for several hours outside the temple as the Buddhist religious ceremonies continued on the inside. Shortly after hearing about the rare phenomenon of an animal praying outside the temple, the Buddhist monks immediately rushed outside and chanted religious Buddhist chants to the holy animal who surprisingly had visited the temple on the new year's eve just like other worshipers who came seeking a pilgrimage for the Chinese new year's blessings. Could it be the humble pig came asking blessings for his owner or well being for its fellow boars, sows and piglets on the eve of Chinese new year of sheep, a close love compatible of the pigs.

The holy pig left after the Buddhist monks finished chanting to him. By the time it left the holy pig was already a internet sensation among the Chinese media as photos of the worshiping pig spread on the Internet like fire as everyone started debating on possible causes of the bizarre phenomenon of the worshiping pig that led him to pray before the temple with that kneeling posture.

While the worshiping pig was becoming the animal god of viral sensation on social media, people debated that it was probably seeking blessings or food on the new year's eve while some said it was probably exhausted and was resting as the kneeling pose is a common sign of resting among the pigs while some tried to take help of the science as they said said it was deficiency of vitamin E in the pigs that causes loss of their ability to stand on their front limbs.

The Legend of the Worshiping Pig


While the worshiping pig had become the viral internet sensation, the local media reported the shocking news of the viral star already being slaughtered at a butchers shop. The cruel twist of fate occurred after the angry Mr Huang, owner of the pig recaptured the poor runaway animal who apparently had escaped with three other pigs from the hog pen on the hill opposite to the Buddha temple.

Mr Huang upon recapturing the pigs sent them to the butcher shop for slaughter as the viral sensation lived the stardom for just a couple of hours.

The one most shocked was the owner himself who had never witnessed anything like this and said if those pigs were scared of getting killed they would have simply ran away instead of bowing down before a temple in the middle of hundreds of worshipers while denying any type of vitamin E deficiencies in his pigs and also regretted his decision to slaughter the pigs as he wasn't aware of the bizarre incident that happened as the pigs ran away. The worshiping pig went viral in the Chinese media and apparently the owner missed the limelight of owning the golden pig, may be that's what the pig wished for so that in the future the farmer treats his cattle well and takes care of their happiness. What do you think was it human emotion displayed by the holy pig or was it simple exhaustion or the Vitamin E deficiency or was the pig kneeling so that the monks can offer it some food after the religious ceremony was over?
