Pope Francis is only the second pope to visit a Buddhist temple.
Pope Francis changed his schedule at the last minute earlier today to visit a Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka’s capital where relics were being put on display.
The opening of a casket containing relics of disciples of the Buddha is a key event in the Buddhist calendar. People line up for days to pay homage to the relics.
A Vatican spokesman said the Pope did not pray during his visit but listened respectfully while monks chanted. Banagala Upatissa, head monk at the Agrashravaka temple, told the Associated Press that allowing the Pope to witness the event was “the highest honour and respect we can offer to His Holiness”.
Pope Francis is the second pope to visit a Buddhist temple. St John Paul II became the first to do so during his trip to Thailand in 1984.
Take a look at some more pictures:
Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi said the visit was brief. “There was not a time of silence in this sense,” he told reporters, referring to prayer. “I can only say the Pope was listening with great respect, and listening also to the prayer of the monk showing the relics and this was all”.
Lets look at the Christianized images of Juntei Kannon (Mother of All Deities). In Japan, she was transformed into Mary Kannon. Still holding the baby Buddha in her arms.

You do not have to believe in Catholicism to see that this Pope is not even a Roman Catholic. He is the promoter of the One World religion.
Even in Catholicism, it is branded a sin to indulge in worship of other gods, that the god presented in the mass. Whatever it is, Buddha is not included in the Eucharist.
The present Pope suddenly changed his plans during his visit to Sri Lanka. He must have been told by the spirit within his soul, to go and honor the head of the Buddhists. The Pope claim he did not pray while the monks where chanting. Still he stood in reverence, when the chief priest told the Pope to honor the relics of two Buddhist saints.
Buddha is supposed to have lived around 500 B.C.
What do Jesus the Messiah say about such supposed to be gods and dieties?
Therefore Jesus said again, ‘Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them.
For all who follow this blog, let there be no doubt. The mother of the Pope, is called “the mother of god”. But before 431 A.D, then “Catholic Mary” was presented as the “Queen of Heaven”, this deity was known as “the mother of gods”. She reigned over all the pagans in the Roman Empire, and was also the mother of Buddha.
Since the Pope is the successor of the Roman Emperor, the Potifex Maximus, the high priest of the pantheon of gods, he will surley honor both “Christ” and Buddha. This is yet another example of the Pontiff being a lawless man of sin. An antichrist in the flesh.
