Chinese "secret" or buddhist "benevolent" societies ?

  1. Just saw parts of DVD making the rounds among some Hmong here, this looks gruesome, I could only see 10 minutes, plus a few snippets of more macabre de-fleshing.

    Does any one know anything about Chinese secret societies, buddhist benevolent societies or voodoo-like rituals?

    This is what the news said, the DVD doesn’t seem like thats what it shows (someone secretly videotaped a large part until they were caught by the monks & flogged)

    I book marked your cites with a short cut and will try to read them tomorrow.

    Bodies dug up in a mass grave really means nothing now as the conquest of the Hmongs by the Chinese Empire went on for a thousand years: and the Chinese casualities far out-weighted the Hmong's. The Hmongs knew the terrain and were able to successfully elude and conquer the Chinese till the end - until they were tricked by a peace agreement. The leader of the Hmong was told to come back to

    The Hmong in Yunan are now dispersed, mostly into Laos and Thailand after hundreds of years of reprssion, but they do have their own cultur: not o say it'sbetter or worse (but different, and in some ways strange by our customs).

    As I was saying in the middle paragraph above. The leader of the Hmong's was trapped, but then rather than try to escape, he made a deal and was tricked. He decided to try and make peace with the Chinese and was then led back to Beijing, the capital. He was without haste, sumarily executed along with all that came with him including his entire family. Thus ended the rule of the Hmong Empire in Southwest China near the border of Southeast Asia.

    The situation of digging up these mass graves, although sad for the traditions of the Hmong - is a no win-no win necessity.

    "The decades-old graves were being cleared because the bodies were buried on the hills and near rivers without permission.....Monks at Wat Tham Krabok and even villagers quite far downstream had complained that the graves have contaminated the water." http://www.startribune.com/stories/462/5756567.html

    There's just too much overpopulation in Asia to even consider any other option.
