Notes to prepare to pray for love at the temples

What should you prepare to go to a temple to pray for love?

Going to the temple to pray for love is also praying for good luck and happiness. Therefore, you should prepare in advance and buy some ritual items.

According to experience, when going to the temple to pray for love, you should prepare the ceremony at the main altars such as Tam Bao, Duc Ong, and Holy Mother altars.

  • Offerings to Tam Bao altar (main altar): It is because this altar is a place to worship Buddha, you need to know that you do not offer salty offerings (no meat, no fishes) and spiritual gold or money. Just leave fruits and sweets, fresh flowers, candles, incense, and don’t forget to give them a list of requests.
  • Offerings to Duc Ong altar (Monsignor altar): For this site, you can put salty dishes and gold and money. In addition, they still offer offerings such as wine, tea, etc., and also give them a list of requests as well. If you do not have the time and conditions to prepare many salty gifts, you can set up a ceremony tray like in Tam Bao alter (fruits, flowers) and add spiritual gold and money.
  • Offering to Holy Mother altar: This offering tray is an important one for those who go to pray for love. Therefore, in addition to spiritual gold and money, candies and chips, you need to prepare a little more things, including 5 red roses, betel nut (must have), and merit money (real money that often supports the pagoda).

If you have time to prepare the ceremony offerings yourself, you will feel more peaceful. However, if you do not have much time, then do not worry because now at the gate of the temples also sells a variety of ceremony trays. You can freely choose to suit your wallet.

And for the list of requests, you can ask the old men at the temple gate to write for you. After you have finished preparing the offerings, you should keep the ceremony trays of each department separately to avoid confusion.

The order of worshiping will be from the first one Tam Bao alter, then to the altar of Duc Ong, and finally to the altar of Mother.

The order of incense burning will be put from the incense burner, Tam Bao, Duc Ong (Monsignor), Thanh Hien altar to the Mother altar. Remember to light 1 stick of incense and then do 3 bows.

In addition, you should also prepare the short saying lecture to pray for love, usually including your name, birthday, hometown, the wishes to find a person covering loved characters and appearance.

What should you pay attention to when going to the temple to pray for love?

When going to the temple to pray for love to ask for a favor with a person of your heart and mind, you should go to the temple alone and come during the daytime.

You should choose a good day, maybe go on the full moon day, the 1st day of the lunar month, or Tet holidays.

However, those days are usually very crowded, so for your convenience, you can choose normal days to make your prayers easier.

When asking for love, you should not be too greedy for rich people, but should seek to meet people with certain qualities, with good characters that suit you.

When preparing the offerings, you should also pay attention as the Tam Bao alter is not allowed to offer salty food and spiritual gold or money.

The rest of the ceremony does not need to be too fussy because the most important thing is still your mind towards it. In addition, after being blessed by the gods, if you want to have a beautiful and durable love, you have to try yourself, not just rely on the gods.

Temples are places of spiritual purity, so you need to pay attention to dress modestly. It is best to choose clothes that are closed-neck, gentle and elegant.

You should also not make up too much and wear plenty of jewelry when visiting the Buddhist land.

Besides, you should also pay attention to turn off the phone, speak softly, and comply with other regulations when entering the temple.
