The smell of the incense, the sound of the chanting, the haze of the candle smoke, the vivid colors of the temples and the symbolism of the Buddhas... worship in the Buddhist tradition is an overload for the senses. Beautiful, haunting and utterly foreign. It is practiced in mobbed temples or quiet corners.

"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."
The Buddha
