(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
DO NOT TOUCH THE TOP OF THE INCENSE WITH OUR HANDS
Caller: When we are holding three incenses that are not aligned, usually we will place the incenses downwards onto our palm to tidy them. Is this the proper way of handling?
Master Jun Hong Lu: You cannot do that. When you are holding the incense, you are only allowed to touch the middle part. You may also hold its end, however, do not turn it upside down. Also, you are not supposed to touch the top of incense with your hands.
