  • It's a pressure. People come and go. A monk prays, blesses and says his texts. With every believer he talks briefly. He has an Assistant. Burn fake money and people sacrifice flowers candles. Moments later they walk out satisfied. They have asked for luck. Earlier that day we heard that a major monk (96) had died. They were preparing for the evening's service. We were also invited.
