Temple Life: Beyond the Spiritual
Temples are an essential part of Hong Kong’s culture. Experience how temples go beyond a spiritual purpose and encompass every aspect of life.
There is no shortage of holy ground in Hong Kong. Along with Buddhist and Taoist temples, you’ll find shrines to local deities. These structures are teeming with history but also full of vibrant, contemporary life.
Beyond the spiritual realm, temples serve practical, daily purposes for locals. Encompassing a life’s fundamental guide to living harmoniously within oneself, around oneself, and beyond oneself, the temples in Hong Kong are a place where the day-to-day mixes seamlessly with the eternal.
This unique experience offers two incredible opportunities:
1. Introduction to the five areas of Chinese philosophy. This will give you a better sense of how Chinese Traditional Medicine, Classical Feng Shui, Qi Gong, I-Ching and many other practices are interconnected. It’s the perfect way to begin your journey or further explore an area of interest.
2. A chance to discover life at a temple from a different perspective, beyond the spiritual realm, and focused on everyday practices which represent beliefs and perceptions whose origins have developed for centuries.
