This religious festival (Taoism) starts in the morning and continues until night. The procession moves from temple to temple and there are many cars and vans like this, where small bands, composed mostly by women and children, rhythmically playing music for the ritual.
Here it's shown an important gesture of this ceremony. The shirtless man you see is the priest of the temple, and every group or person who came, had to obtain his blessing and respect by a bow. This was an important step of the ceremony that has been repeated throughout the entire duration of the procession.
At the old neighborhoods of Tokyo... a door half open, an old man that work despite poor lighting condition.
Two children intent to work with wood, in a small village of huts on the mountains in the middle of the jungle .. a return to the past ... a lifestyle alien to the modern civilization.
Shot taken within the walls of the Dalai Lama Temple. Some Buddhists were practicing to a particular religious procedure. A type of Buddhist prayer that I had never seen.
Spying the monks of Dalai Lama temple from behind the window, during the prayer time. For a nice pray, a nice fruit juice is always necessary.
Especially in poor Countries like Cambodia, the kids choose the monk life that at least provide them something to eat daily. The sacrifices behind this "faith journey" are quite a pleasant outlook compared to the starvation.
