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. (Mon. March 25, 2019)
The Bodhisattva's Enlightenment Day: 19th of the sixth lunar month. (Sun. July 21, 2019)
The Bodhisattva's Leaving Home Day: 19th of the ninth lunar month. (Thur. October 17, 2019)
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.
