Baby blessing

For the Buddhist blessing, we had to stand in line for a awhile, then entered the main hall with the there Buddha huge statues (representing past, present and future), then took off our shoes and knelt down. Some Buddhist monks chanted, rang bells, and sprinkled us with water while we prayed. It was hard to get a picture since I was in the middle of it, but here's Sophie during the blessing. And the statue of Kwan Yin. She represents the feminine face of the Buddha and is sometimes called the Compassionate Buddha. I'm trying to find some Kwan Yin statues for gifts, but so far no luck. I must work on my gift shopping in the next few days.
