There is something about Prostrations and Bowing that has me a bit uneasy. I don’t think it is embarrassment. Well… maybe a little. I just don’t want to do it wrong. I think it has to do with showing respect to the tradition. Mostly giving right honor to the saint. Did I mention I don’t want to look foolish. Why is that?
In all seriousness the whole thing is out of my element. It seems normal, and not at all weird. Actually it is quite beautiful. People say imitation is the best flattery. One of these days I will be bowing and prostrating with the best of them.
