Not being stolen, never occur a fire
In the morning, the doors of the main hall are opened. While my chanting sutra for 35 minutes, the fresh air,light breeze are coming in and out. The birds are singing on the rooftop, the crows also gathered there. The neighbors visit a grave,and are begging deeply to the main Buddha. It is very sure and clear .... There is someone who strongly need for the help,or the power of the chanting.
