Purify body and mind, and clean hands before entering. Do not talk about secular matters or make noise in temple halls. Do not sit in the halls except for practicing Chan meditation. Do not touch the instruments in the Mahavira Hall. After entering the Mahavira Hall, pay homage to the Buddha from on the point of entrance. Place the right hand over the left and perform the Amitabha Mudra. With arms relaxed and glances lowered, concentrate on the tranquil mind. If there is surplus after the incense offering, give it to the venerable master in charge of incenses and lamps. After service, walk out the halls in orderly queues and do not swarm out.
