Q: Master Lu, when females are menstruating, can they still perform their daily recitation, recite and burn Little Houses? Can they make incense offerings, and make prostrations to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas?
- It is absolutely fine for females to perform daily recitation and recite Little Houses during menstruation.
- It is best to recite Little Houses during the daytime on sunny days. They should stop reciting as soon as they feel uncomfortable.
- After they have showered and cleaned themselves, they can offer incense, make prostrations to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and burn Little Houses.
- If not very clean, they can still offer incense and burn Little Houses, but it is best not to make prostrations to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
