Worship

HDP  068

Burning incense sticks, Buddha image; those are, I think, the only common points between the different kinds of Buddhism across the region. It's interesting to see that the way devotion is shown completely varies from country to country, and hence from one culture to another.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Buddhist do not worship with incense sticks. It is but a overlap of culture from Taoism.
That is how the incense urn is place outside of the temple as Buddha is not to be worshipped.
