Taiwan Lion’s Head Mountain Shuilian Cave is a natural rock cave, the Buddha of Sakyamuni is enshrined. When the night falls in May, thousands of fireflies fly in front of the quiet Buddha. They are flying all over the mountains and plains like the twinkling stars in the sky. Is this the Buddha who is guiding the lost soul in the world? Or is it the crystal clear sense of happiness produced by the soul after purification by the Buddha?
