I have a shrine in my house. I used to burn incenses and pray to the deities everyday. I learned meditation from my teacher, and she suggested that we don’t do such things. Why can’t I? I invited deities to our house when I set up my shrine. If burning incense and praying to the deities are not good, what should I do?
It is fine to have an altar and pray. It is fine to burn incense as well.
