But when opening the meditation net, there was only empty. Found only a kettle, almsbowl and hanging bag. They searched many times, but did not find LP Hong. Eventually, with mercy and pity for the Vietcong soldiers, LP Hong made himself visible for the Vietcong soldiers by thinking if he had mutual karma with the soldiers in past life, he prayed to be captured to recompense for karma. But if no mutual karma, he prayed that Buddha, his teachers to protect himself.
