Two Pillars In Small Hall

The worshippers had flowers in their hands

Shot at Lak Mueang in Bangkok, Thailand.

The small hall was silent. Yet worshippers came here in a seamless way. After entering, they started to pray silently and went out of the hall without saying a word when they finished praying toward the pillars. No one read the sutras with uttering a word. The silence looks nice in sacred places. Standing in the corner of the hall, I watched the scene silently.

Watching the worshippers, I found one thing. Most of them carried flowers as an offering. These flowers were called Phuang malai and very popular in Thailand. I often saw them sold in front of temples. On the other hand, no one brought any incense sticks here. Along with Phuang malai, the incense sticks were an essential item in the temples. I didn't know the reason. However, it seemed to be prohibited to offer incense sticks here.
