117 "Soul Cow," Zhiti Huayan Temple, Ningde, Fujian

Read more about my visit to this temple.

The "Soul Cow" (灵牛) at Zhiti Huayan Temple (支提华严寺) in Ningde, Fujian (福建, 宁德市). It's said that the cow went down on its knees whenever anyone said "Namo Amitofo" (南无阿弥陀佛) (the name of Amitabha Buddha) to it. It had been saved from butchering and brought to the temple for refuge--and this was only in the 1980s!
