Digressing from Food to Visiting Longshan Temple, 龍山寺

The temple visitors and monks chanting the sutra on an early hot Sunday morning (before 8am!). Very serious. Incense burning everywhere, creating heat and smoke.

Longshan temple is located in the city center of Taipei. When I visited, there were many disabled people who came to pray for their health. There were also many disabled people pandering right outside of the MRT entrance. There were also people seeking to know their fortune. It made me Feel mixed about the role of religion.
