How to light incense. What is the sequence of worship in the temple?

Starting this year, in accordance to the government’s environmental protection regulations, only one stick of incense should be used.

 

It is suggested to pray in sequence with one incense stick. After you finish your prayer to each god and deity, insert your incense into the God incense burner in the Main Hall. If your religious faith requires that you use more than one stick of incense, you may do so.

 

Incense burners other than the God incense burner in the Main Hall are mainly for the administrators of the temple to worship the deities and gods. However, you may light an incense stick for each incense burner within each sector and hall if you wish.

 

Attention:

 

Prayer sequence: Main Hall, Caishen (God of Wealth) Hall, Wenchang Hall, Taisui (Star Gods) Hall, Dragon God Fudezhenshen Hall, and God censer
