That is what I have found about it:

Zitat:


A man dressed as a Buddhist monk who was warned in Wellington for soliciting donations had earlier been spotted doing the same in Auckland.

Suspicions were raised about the man's behaviour by members of the public and the Herald located the man on Quay St in central Auckland on March 10.

Did you give money to the monk? Did he seem sincere?


Dressed in orange robes, speaking with extremely limited English, he was attempting to solicit donations.

A notebook he carried featured a picture of an unnamed temple, which he pointed to as he asked for a "donation".

The notebook was a donation ledger, featuring donors' names and money given. There were numerous donations for $20 and $30, the Herald witnessed.



The man would approach people on the street, bow and ask for a donation.

He would then give donors a small shiny gold card, named as a "kai guang amulet".

When spoken to by the Herald, the man appeared to speak very little English beyond the words "donation" and "peace".

About the meaning auf Kai Guang or Kaiguang:

Zitat:

Kaiguang (Traditional Chinese: 開光; Simplified Chinese: 开光; Pinyin: Kāiguāng) is the Chinese term for consecration of a statue of a deity. In Chinese, the literal meaning of Kaiguang is "opening of light". While it is often performed in the Buddhist and Taoist faiths, it is also well known as the act of consecrating new lion costumes used for the traditional lion dance.

A kaiguang ritual varies amongst traditions, but it is essentially the act of formal consecration for proper usage by dotting the eyes of a statue or lion costume using an calligraphy brush coated with cinnabar. In Taoism and Buddhism, the ritual is performed by senior clerics and is done by inviting a specific deity, buddha or bodhisattva to empower an "empty" effigy of themselves and to fill it with a divine essence.

It is believed that if a statue or lion costume not gone through kaiguang, it cannot be worshiped or used for performance, as the eyes are still "closed".
