BUILDING SHRINES IN THE CENTRAL TEXAS REGION

Tending to personal home shrines is a tradition dating back thousands of years. In many cultures and religions people have used daily rituals to keep their spiritual lives connected to their day to day living. People may light an incense or put a little offering like a flower in their shrine to express their gratitude and devotion.

Ancestor Altar: An altar is a space used to place all the wonderful things that remind you of those who have passed. It consists of pictures, candles, flowers, treats, and of course yummy foods. They are considered offerings to the  beloved dead, who even in the afterlife take a special interest in us.
