A Short Moment of Spiritual Flow

clipboard-with-pencil_16x16While many religious places in Europe are struggling to attract people who seek spiritual guidance, the situation in most Chinese and Japanese temples is very different. In this temple, even whole families come together to pay their respects to Guan Yu. The temple is visited by several thousand people a day and the setting is busy but serene. The sound of prayers, the fragrant smoke of burning incense sticks and people devoted to the religious ceremonies, creates an atmosphere that makes me quiet.

Tip: Change the setting of the movie on HD (1080p) for best results.
