Here are some more images of the beautiful statues and wall carvings during my walk around the Leshan Temple gardens. Leshan is in Sichuan Province China close to Chengdu where the horrific earthquakes have taken place in 2008 and most recently in 2013. The worst earthquake happened in Wenchuan on Monday May 12th 2008 killing 69,195 people and a further 18,392 still missing presumed dead, so a total of 87,587 souls were lost to Mother Earth on that day. The earthquake was also felt in nearby countries and as far away as both Beijing and Shanghai—1,500 km (930 mi) and 1,700 km (1,060 mi) away—where office buildings swayed with the tremor. I too felt these tremors in Shanghai 😦 Strong aftershocks, some exceeding magnitude 6, continued to hit the area even months after the main quake, causing new casualties and damage.
I hope you enjoy my continued walk around these beautiful gardens and you feel some energy and serenity from the images?
Sichuan Province China has been hit by yet another massive earthquake, the last major earthquake that hit Sichuan in 2008 took the lives of 68,000 people, 17,000 missing and 375,000 injured…Please, Please take a moment to send your prayers to all our brothers and sisters in China, let us pray for their safety, send them protection, light and love from your heart.
As you know I live and work here in China, so my heart is broken now at the pain and suffering I’m seeing on our local media stations, I will meditate today and I will pray for all those that have lost loved ones and I will offer my best intentions to help those in need right now.
