The Story behind the legend of the weeping Buddha statue is as follows: In ancient times two warriors confronted each other in numerous battles. Both of them wore masks and never saw each other's face. After many such encounters the older warrior killed the younger one. Upon removing his mask he discovered he had killed his own long lost son. The Weeping Buddha is the warrior filled with sorrow. By touching the back of the Buddha one is supposed to pass all of your sorrow and troubles on to the weeping Buddha thus making life a little better for you.
