Hands Of A Worshiper

hands of a worshiper
Shot at Shiluodian, a temple in Tainan, Taiwan Tetsu Ozawa

The woman was putting hands together

The woman in this photo was putting hands together while she was listening to the preach. I didn't know which religion this temple belonged to. Probably, it belonged to Taoism. Although it is different from Buddhism, the praying gesture is same.

When I saw Caodaist in Vietnam, they did the same gesture during praying. So I thought to put hands together had a meaning of praying in Asian countries without any reference to religion.
