In the photographer's words: "It was said in PuTuo Temple that wishes can always be realized. Each year thousands of people visit there. For a long time, they kneeled with their eyes closed and talked to Buddha in their souls. With a strong belief that the Buddha can hear their words, people prayed piously. They were wishing for food, rain and a peaceful life. Looking at them, involuntarily I took this photograph and made that silent moment an eternal memory."
