Red Sutra

The red sutra was place on the table

Shot at Hsing Tian Kong in Taipei, Taiwan.

I didn't know what kind of religious place this temple was. The main deity enshrined here was Guan Yu. So I thought this temple belonged to Taoism at first. Yet there were some other deities enshrine here, for example, Lü Dongbin who was a Tang Dynasty Chinese scholar. Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism and a folk belief seemed to be mixed.

In the courtyard, many tables were placed. Although they were not believers, the red sutras were put on the table. I wondered what kind of sutra they used.
