There are three celebrations annually dedicated
to Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva among the Chinese Buddhists:
The Bodhisattva's Birthday: 19th of the second lunar month. (Wed. April 4th, 2018)
The Bodhisattva's Enlightenment Day: 19th of the sixth lunar month. (Tue. July 31, 2018)
The Bodhisattva's Leaving Home Day: 19th of the ninth lunar month. (Sat. October 27, 2018)
I had the opportunity to meet a sympathetic fortune teller near the temple
It was not easy, but after a while my bamboo stick of the day jumped out of the box.
As I tell on this website, this method of fortune telling involves shaking a box full of bamboo sticks numbered 1 to 100 in such a manner that just one number would mysteriously jump out of the box. This number would then be your fortune and an interpreter would read it to you from his book.
