Drying incense sticks

The women in the countryside near Hanoi capital are drying incense sticks. In Buddhist countries, burning incense is for the fragrant smoke to go towards the divine realm. The prayers of the incense burners blend into the incense smoke transmitted to the Buddha. God Buddha will feel the wish of the prayer.
