''I Don't Know How To Behave!" Contemporary visitors to a Taoist Temple are not conversant anymore with proper conduct and worship. It is Fr.Axel's fervent belief, that people from all over the world would like to know more about decent and devout behaviour, when entering the premises of a Taoist sacred area. This manual is written for foreigners and Asians alike, who have already forgotten their own religious roots. Using simple illustrations, Fr.Axel tells us about the correct ritual behaviour, within the spiritual premises of a Taoist Temple. We will walk with the author through the temple compound, learn how to cleanse and purify, how to use joss sticks, how to pray more effectively and - finally - how to make obeisance and offerings to our ancestors. This edition also serves as an introduction into the religious world of Taoism, describing in a step-by-step fashion the ritualistic procedures of an authentic faith. This book is the result of Fr.Axel's 20-year-stint as a Taoist acolyte and priest.
