worship for ancestors


ViharaBudhiBhakti.jpg

So this is (Chinese) New Year. The time of the year where viharas are full with people, praying for luck, prosperity, and longevity. Worshipping their ancestors. With incense, burning paper, and offerings. And oranges – mandarin oranges.

The Budhi Bhakti Vihara in Batam is one of such. As a matter of fact, the number of worshippers are so high that the smoke from the incense filled about half of the compound.

There are quite a number of points where you can pray. This is one at the entrance after the gate behind (where worshippers are also crowding). I was focusing on the front side, but when I looked back I saw this silhouette, and took a few frames with my pocket camera.

I hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!
