Datian Zhanggong Bodhisattva's international lawsuit has no results so far, and the physical bodhisattva has attracted great attention. In fact, we in Yong'an also used to have physical bodhisattva. As far as I know, there are at least two. One is the general public of Cao Yuan Jinhua Palace (now changed to the Baolong Palace), and the other is Honggong of Hongtian Dragon Tiger Palace
Please see a record from the Wanli edition of "Yong'an County Chronicle": "Tonggong, I don't know its generation," The Fairy "cloud: Wang Gong Chuan Lan Gong, Lan Gong Chuan Tong Gong.

It doesn't matter. When the seedlings are finished, with a wave of the hand, a few acres of field will be planted. The field is not stingy. On the day of the trip, the people will look around, and there will be no time. In the leaves of the river, the fish are grown, and the people will watch the fish, that is, they will sit and become puppets. The villagers shape their bodies and worship the living Buddha. The response should be as loud as possible. In recent years, Cai Di's original people have taken their finger, and the spiritual trace has diminished. " This text records the passing of Tonggong's Chengxian, and it is clearly pointed out that the villagers regarded it as a bodhisattva and worshiped as a living Buddha.

It proves that the "County Chronicle" is not false.
Hong Gong, with the last name Lin Cheng and Hong Tian from the Ming Dynasty, is a folk deity who is also a Buddha and a Taoist. According to rumors, Hong Cheng once lost his hair as a monk at Putuo Temple in Putuo Mountain, Zhejiang Province, and worshiped the Master as a teacher. I also met several people from my hometown in Fujian, including Huang Gong, Jiang Gong and others who will also get to know the future. After several years of work, Hong Cheng made great progress in Buddhism and once held positions such as "Faculty Lecturer". He was also proficient in "Qimen Jiajia", and was able to call the wind, rain, wash the altar, and dig the land to make wine. He later resigned from his hometown due to his father's illness. Back in his hometown, Hong Cheng opened an altar to teach and preach, pursuing all sentient beings, and he was known as the "Master of Falun Dafa". In the eleventh year of the Ming Yongle (1413), he got the Taoism from the monk Harima of Wutai Mountain. He walked away with the wind and sat in the stone house of Longhu Mountain. Bong. For Hong Gong's story, Hong Tian's 80-year-old veteran He Muxiang has collected information from the novel Yiran. The statue of Hong Gongfa was thrown outside the temple during the Cultural Revolution and turned into a pile of bones. After the reform and opening up, the palace of the Dragon and Tiger was re-lighted, and the villagers put Hong Gong's bones in the belly of the newly carved idol and re-enclosed it on the shrine.
