What people are saying:

The story is too deep to be clear, but the people who have been to Taplun Temple should have seen the statue of the Buddha smile. This is a certain feature of Mahayana Buddhism, like the Longmen Grottoes of the statue of the Great Buddha Wu Zetian, Yungang Grottoes of the statue of the Northern Wei Empress Dowager. But then why change to the South Buddhism. That is, not sculpture these Buddha heads, interested in the deep understanding.
