Chinese President Hu Jintao started his India visit today. He brought with him a gift, an unearthed Buddhapada stone made in China 1500 years ago. Buddhaim spreaded to China as early as 200 B.C. Lack of authentic scriptures, people had been using liberty in interpreting the true meaning of Buddhism. Monk Xuanzhuang went to Inida in 627 A.D. to study Buddhaim and bring back sutras. This Buddhapada was made by Monk Xuanzhuang.
The issue at stake is whether the CCP boss has the legitimacy to give national treasure as gift to foreign government?
