Tsinghua-alumna nun, mom of 26 foundlings
(CFP)
Updated: 2009-10-16 11:35

Nun Zhihong holds her 9-month-old foster daughter Yuanyuan, who was abandoned at her temple three days after birth in the winter of 2008, in Xi'an, northwest China's Shaanxi province, October 13, 2009. Tsinghua alumna Zhihong, failing "to find the needed answer in her discipline of philosophy", turned to Buddhism in 1995 and adopted 26 children abandoned at the gate of her temple, all suffering illnesses except for Yuanyuan. Twenty of the children follow her religious mantle, either studying at domestic Buddhism schools or having already graduated.
