(Beijing) – Authorities in Henan province have concluded that allegations of financial and lifestyle corruption leveled at the abbot of China’s most reputed Buddhist temple, Shaolin, are not true.
Shi Yongxin, 51, who became abbot of Shaolin Temple in 1999 and had courted controversy for running the legendary temple as a successful tourist business, was embroiled in scandal in 2015 after several former Shaolin monks and employees reported that the abbot kept mistresses and had daughters with them.
