Asking about your future in pagodas
Many superstitious people visit Pagoda in order to ask about their future or find out the answer to all their problems. The visitors will kneel before a statue of Buddha, ask something and shake a bamboo body part, which contents many tabs with numbers on them, until one tab fells down. Then, they give a monk this numbered tab to get the answers. If many tabs get out , they will take the tab, which fells down first or shake the bamboo once more time. However, if it is not successful for them on the second try, they should stop it because the Buddha cannot answer their question or they didn’t really believe in Buddha when they ask Him about their future. In big cities, this activity is forbidden, there are just some pagodas in the countryside still allowing it now.
