Small shrine on the path to the main temple.
Path to the pet shrine.
|The tradition is to rub the statue on the part of it that corresponds to where you have pain in your own body,|
(i.e. the left knee) then touch yourself in the same place as a prayer to take your pain away.
|The tradition at this incense censor is similar in that you wave the smoke onto yourself |
to take away pain and preserve good health.
|Care givers were bringing several old and infirm people to experience the incense smoke.|
|Evidently it works for pets as well.|
|This area has many statues and creates an area for remembering and praying for children |
that were stillborn or lost due to miscarriage or abortion.
