Participants are asked to follow certain rules of etiquette, all of which will generally be familiar to Burmese and many of those from other Asian Buddhist ethnicities, but many of which will seem strange to Western visitors on first encounter. These are for the most part traditional expressions of traditional veneration of the Buddha (represented by Buddha images), the Dharma (the Buddha's teachings, represented in scripture) and the Sangha (the monastic community that has upheld the teachings for one hundred generations).

Thank you very much for your kindness and cooperation.
