Following Mazu with a joyous heart

文字-A A +A

The third month of the lunar calendar is crazy Mazu time, when the Da Jia Jenn Lann of Taichung holds nine days and eight nights of spectacular activities that travel around the district. The people lined the roads and squeezed into the narrow gap below the palanquin to receive the auspicious blessings of Mazu. This annual moving Mazu festival sees the participation of tens of thousands of people who are given the opportunity to make sincere connections with friends, strangers and even with the Gods.

A number of citizen journalists recorded this year’s event where they walked step by step with Mazu capturing the joy and sincerity of all those participating. Walking with the procession the citizen journalists discovered many touching stories had the chance to become acquainted with many interesting folk customs. For example, a red thread issued by Mazu can bestow good luck on single men and women to help them find a suitable partner, and sucking on the nipple of the Santai Zi can help youngsters grow up obedient and safe. Last but not least is the highlight of the event, Zuan Jial Di (to squeeze into the narrow gap below the palanquin), where one can receive auspicious blessings and protection from the Gods.
