Giant Joss Sticks



Aren't these giant joss sticks colourful and beautiful? These joss sticks are contributed by devotees during the recent deity's birthday celebration at a temple in Melaka. Devotees will offer such giant joss sticks as a gesture of appreciation to the deity for blessing them and fulfilling their prayer requests.

Have you seen such celebration in a Chinese temple?

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
