"Kuan Yin Temple ~ burning joss sticks" Goddess of Mercy (Kuan Yin) Temple Tip by Audrey118


Each devotees offer many many joss sticks....it can get very smokey and irritating to my eyes. And becos so many devotees offer joss sticks, and there is simply not enough place at the huge joss sticks holder (large large urns), they are discarded to make space for other devotees. The picture shows a temple worker picking the joss sticks to be burnt in a large burner.
