If you travel to Taiwan when during in Chinese New Years , you have to pray in temples !


It's tradition ! and it's good experience .

In this article , I'll take example from my experience of Guanyin Bodhisattva Temple in Linkou.


Money for god

light incense

Gas stove for incense


First , take 3~6 of incense and light up .

Depend which temple you are going to , sometimes it will be 3 or 6 .

And take 1 package of God's money . put on the desk near Bodhisattva.




Second , to pray. In front of temple , there is a incense burner. Here is the first station you should pray.


Pray into sky of God , say about Who are you , Where you come from , Where you lived , and pray for God about health . All pray in heart .




After pray , put 3 of incenses into burner.



After go inside the temple , you can see every one pray to same direction.

There is Bodhisattva in front of you.


To pray again , said the same Prayer , why should said it again ?

because in this time you pray for Bodhisattva not Sky of God.


After pray , put 3 of incenses into burner.



To pray

divination blocks

If you have problems , You can ask for Bodhisattva.


to take same size 2 of divination blocks , and go to in front of the burner.


put divination blocks in the hands and Turn three clockwise upon the burner.


After turn , now you can pray . put divination blocks in the hands and ask question for Bodhisattva.


Any question can ask , for example , How's going on in my future ?


then put blocks on the floor.



Yes for divination blocks

No for divination blocks

Smile for divination blocks
Yes for divination blocks : means Yes ! Bodhisattva want give you answers.
No for divination blocks : means No , Bodhisattva said don't want give you answers.
Smile for divination blocks : means Bodhisattva want you to ask again.

draw lots

If you get the answer of Yes , take one of bamboo sticks , draw lots .



And ask again , Is this one correct ? do the divination blocks again.


If it's Yes , then you get right answer.


If it's No , then change the sticks , ask again.


If it's Smile , then ask again until Yes or No .
