Washing of hands and hearts
Just before you enter a Japanese Shrine, you will see several wooden dippers and a a basin overflowing with water. Now before you take a sip from those dippers, take note that they're for ritual cleansing purposes. You're supposed to wash your hands and symobolically wash your hearts before you enter the holy place. Do that and serenity will come on you when you enter the shrine.
