While reading Empty Cloud by Xu Yun (Hsu Yun) (26 August 1840? – 13 October 1959) there is an interesting passage on page 23. A surprising UFO reference in the form of wisdom lamps, from the year 1884 in the autobiography. Located in Mount Wutai.
I climbed the Da-luo Peak, where I paid reverence to the ‘wisdom lamps’ said to appear there. I saw nothing the first night but on the second, I saw a great ball of light flying from the Northern to the Central Peak, where it came down, splitting a short while later into over ten balls of different sizes. The same night, I saw on the Central Peak three balls of light flying up and down in the air and on the Northern Peak, four balls of light which varied in size.
This is a clear reference to some kind of ball lightning or UFO. Maybe, this could have been what caused the Tunguska explosion? There must be so much more of these observations hidden in books you don’t expect to find any UFO references.
On page 52 there is another sighting of the same kind, this time on Mount Emei.
Late in the nights, we saw countless heavenly lamps whose brilliance was akin to the ‘wisdom lamps’ previously seen on Mount Wutai.
