The older woman stood with beadrolls in her hands

The main hall of Lungshan Temple was surrounded by corridors. And many people were sat or stood there. Some people were just taking a rest there. However, most of the people were praying while reciting a sutra. They had a religious scripture in their hands and turned over the page silently.

Apart from other worshippers, the older woman in this photo didn't have any religious scriptures in her hands. She just stood in the corridor. On behalf of religious scriptures, she had beadrolls in her both hands. While looking at the main hall, she was telling the beads. Seemingly, she was quoting the religious scripture from memory. That meant she could learn the scripture by rote. So she didn't need any scripture during praying. She could have a memory like an elephant.
