Hello! 😀 This post will be all about the Journey To Enlightenment at Chin Swee Temple, Genting! There will be a lot of disturbing photos [for certain people, not me =P], so if you find them disturbing/disgusting, don’t complain ah, you’ve been warned 😀
Hello everyone! Yes that’s me at the entrance of Journey To Enlightenment! [So this photo is NOT disturbing/disgusting ah :D] 😀 Come, I give you the brief introduction first as taken from the information board there! 😀
Journey to Enlightenment is a place where our next generation can learn about moral principles and ethics, and to apprehend the meaning of karma.
It encourages human beings to be kindhearted and law abiding person. It teaches people to become an ethical person. Sinful behavior in current life will result in harsh punishments in hell.
A visit to Journey Of Enlightenment will enlighten a person to appreciate human life, will understand that committing evil act will be punished in hell.
It tells the story of 10 Hell Chamber where a kind person was rewarded and evil person was punished, to deter people from committing sunful act.
It lead our next generation to perform charity and accumulate virtue, to make them understand good deeds will be awarded and evil will be recompensed with evil.
So, here we go!! 😀
The first stop will be the Registration Office. Eh, you know what, I can’t find the description about this anywhere there. Okay, it’s either I missed it out or memang tak ada. *Makes a mental note to check out next time*
My guessing is that, this is where all dead people come and then, they register themselves before being brought to the different hell chambers.
Imaging waking up in the middle of the night and you see the guy at the most left in this photo -_-…

Those who had seriously committed unwholesome actions would be taken to the right chamber, to review his or her wrong doing and the penalties for that action.
The judge’s name Qin Guang Wang.
