Spiralling hopes of religious fervour August 26, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Craft, Culture, Malaysia, Places.
There was time in the distant past when vertical joss sticks and thick smoke were the mainstay of Chinese temples. Times have changed.
These days, spiralling joss cones adorn the ceilings of most of these temples. Somehow, they seem to brighten up the place of worship. These religious items are not exactly cheap but they do satisfy those devotees who come with special prayers in their hearts and silent requests.
We all know the peace and inner satisfaction that come with sincerity and earnest wishes. Most of our mothers and some of our fathers have been inside these places, requesting special favours on our behalf.
