Sculpture of Buddha

  • Sep 19 2019 - Sep 19 2019


Professor Kunlun Zhang was born in China in 1941. From an early age, he was brainwashed by the atheist Communist ideology. The propaganda had turned him into a stalwart atheist. When he started to practice Falun Gong, his horizons broadened. He began to understand the vastness of the universe, the immensity of the colossal firmament, and the profundity of life.

Because of his belief, Professor Zhang was arrested four times. He was detained and tortured for three months. While in a forced labor camp, he suffered all kinds of torture, including beatings and being shocked with an electric baton, and on the verge of collapse.

But the brutality he experienced did not shake his faith. With the help of the Canadian Government, his friends and family, and concerned people everywhere, he was released. In appreciation of those taking part in his release, Professor Zhang created this sculpture, the image of the Buddha whom he reveres.
