A recently widely-spreaded photo  concerns  Chinese about the death and the other world beyond life.

Caption:
A monk prays for an old man who died from an unknown cause at a railway station in Taiyuan, North China's Shanxi province, Nov 25, 2011. Witnesses said that the man "slept" for a long time until he was discovered to be dead by a passenger. Then a monk came forward and held his hand as he prayed. This photo, forwarded 38,373 times by Dec 3,2011, was one of the most circulated on China's popular micro blog weibo.com, and generated hot discussions over issues ranging from the lack of religious belief in Chinese society to the attitude toward death, and apathy among people.

Great Photo indeed. Impressive and deeply touching.

It is always a pleasure for me to see people who look beyond Bullet trains, BMW's, iPads and Rolex.

It is clear that the monk is praying for his soul.

In the end, regardless of belief - there is the base need to have, at the very least, someone there to acknowledge that person's existance in the world.  As it stands, that 'old man in the train station' has had more acknowledgement than most people in the world's history.  We can only wish to be as lucky.
