Title

Consecration: Nuns light their incense sticks at the altar, 1987

Description

Nuns light their incense sticks at the altar. The nuns will live at the temple and prepare the meals for the monks. From my observations, the nuns did not spend their time at the temple to practice meditation or study the Buddhist doctrine, instead they cleaned and decorated the temple and enjoyed each other's company through conversation and the administering of traditional health care, i.e. coining, cupping, massage, etc.
