A Rare Beauty Is Blooming Across The Globe3 min read
Flowers that bloom only once every 3,000 years has blossomed on the head of a sacred Buddhist statue. “The Miracle of the Flowers,” as it was called, happened in the Chonggyesa Temple, located in a suburb of Seoul, South Korea. Tens of thousands of pilgrims flocked to see the white blossoms on the tip of the eyebrow of the shining, gilded statue of Kuan Yin.
Of course, the Udumbara flowers referred to are not inside the fruits but are visible as the ones in the prophecy. They are seen on Buddha statues etc, blossoming on their own. This is supposed to happen once in 3000 years.
Buddhist priests in South Korea say the legendary flowers blossoming on the forehead of Kuan Yin1 the Compassionate, appear when a ‘Sage King of the Future’ comes into the world, which one Buddhist leader called, “a delight that gives joy beyond description.”
According to the monks, 21 threadlike stems grew from the statue. Each one with a tiny white flower no bigger than the tip of a ballpoint pen.
This was the first time in the 1,000-year history of the monastery that the flowers have blossomed.
Experts say it’s unthinkable that the 500-year-old statue of Kuan Yin, gilded every three years over the (original) woodwork, could produce growing flowers.
Botanically, the flower is related to the Ficus, says botanist William Grant, There is just no way it could take root in the statue. The flowers grow without soil or water and can grow anywhere. Dr. Ireland says the flowers are regarded as divine in India, Japan, and China and are believed to bloom only when a momentous event is about to happen.
In the Plum Blossom Poem, Mr. Shao Yong of the Southern Song Dynasty revealed important heavenly secrets about the opening of the gates of heavens.
The Back Pushing Diagrams prophecy by Li Chunfeng and Yuan Tiangang Inscription Prophecy in Tang Dynasty, the Pancake Song prophecy as well as the prophecy of “Stone Tablet Inscription in Taibai Mountain of Shaanxi Province” by Liu Bowen during the Ming Dynasty, and other prophecies – all of these tell a similar story.
According to Buddhist scriptures, the Holy King Who Turns the Wheel embodies 32 manifestations and seven treasures. He is an ideal king who rules the world by turning a Wheel that rectifies the Teachings through justice instead of force.
