Another giant statue unearthed

On September 8, 2008 archeologists searching for the fabled 300 meter statue at the site of the
already dynamited Buddhas announced the discovery of a new 19-meter-long (62 ft) "sleeping Buddha",
the pose known to Buddhists as the scene where the Buddha passed into nirvana.

This discovery may have confirmed the Chinese pilgrim Xuanzang's mention of a large Buddha in a sleeping
posture in this area, which were recorded by Xuanzang one thousand four hundred years ago.

Your mind understands what you have been taught; your heart what is true.
