"Religious customs" Buddhism & Monks Tip by SirRichard

Buddhism & Monks, Bangkok: 58 reviews and 64 photos

  Buddhist cult

I have never deeply understood all those buddhist ceremonies, but when I visit the temples I like to sit aside and watch the locals come in, prepare the incense and the flowers, put it in place, bend, pray, mutter, look up, bend again, put their shoes on and go...

I have always wonder what do they pray for... Health? Love? Fortune? and who do they pray to?... the same God (at the end)?

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
