Temple

 

Religious buildings in Japan are mostly of two types.
Do you remember one of these??
Yes, Shrine!!!

And one more thing.
That is a temple. We associate temples with ancestor worship.
Do you know how to worship?
The way worship is different at shrines and temples.

First, we wash our hands to purify ourselves
before worshiping the shrine or the temple.

Give a small offering.

Ring the bell.

It is the same as both worship so far.

 

【Shrine】
Bow twice and clap your hands twice

Put your hands together and pray and bow again before you leave.

 

【Temple】
Put your hands together and pray.

There are how we worship two types.

 

今日はお寺についてです。
みなさん、神社とお寺のお参りの仕方が
違うのはご存知ですよね?!
え?知らない?(笑)

神社では2礼2拍1礼がほとんどですが、
お寺では静かに手を合わせて祈願します。
知ってるようで曖昧な神社・お寺の作法。
この機会に覚えましょう!
