Tortoise as Offering (2)
Continuing from yesterday's posting on tortoise paus as offering by devotees to the Nine Emperors God, these are the paus on sale at another stall in the temple. The paus were adorned with gold ingots and pineapple with words signifying good fortune and prosperity.
"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
