    One day I was walking with a young japanese man who was the most disoriented person I had ever met. When we first started walking together he would consult the map then set off confidently in a direction only to realise, miles later, that we were going in the wrong direction.
    After a while he would decide what direction we should go then we would laughingly go the opposite way - which was always right.
    I found out that this disorientation applied to temples too. After doing our rituals, I produced my scroll to be stamped and couldn't understand why the staff were so sullen with me. My friend suddenly realised we were at a Bangai and ushered me out before a riot could start!

    Temples are a great place to make our mind calm. It’s a nice feeling to be in a temple. I love the silence!
