He’s a fierce-looking spirit general who guards doorways and gates. Hengjiang — popularly known as General Heng — has an amazing secret weapon. He can dispatch deadly laser beams from his nostrils.
This is all due to his Tai Chi breathing practice — breathe in hard enough and you too could blast lasers from your nose.
With all these abilities, he was conscripted by Heaven to serve as a minder to protect Buddha. Why the great Enlightened One should need protection in Heaven makes us wonder.
They not only protect entrances but are also used to deter vandals from desecrating shrines. No sensible vandal would wish to risk attack by a nasal laser. Or, as we prefer to call it, a naser.
