Typically, the Chinese community ahead of Chinese New Year celebrations visited the monastery or temple to pray. However, some of the traditions of the church did release a bunch of sparrows in the monastery courtyard.
Furthermore, the box was opened by one of the church until one by one the sparrows fly into space.
According Awai, one of the leaders in the Vihara Dharma Bhakti, remove sparrows does have a meaning and a hope.
"We are human beings who should be free of problems, so removing the bird signifies that we do not continue terbelengu," said Awai as one of the administrators.
However, Awai said sparrows actually release this tradition is not only done ahead of the Chinese New Year celebrations. According Awai, remove the Sparrows is also sometimes done in a typical day or under certain conditions.
