When I went to the Erawan Shrine, the first thing the guide told us about the shrine was that Jackie Chan, the famous Hong Kong martial arts star, once visited the Shrine in 1996. Mr. Chan knew the shrine is Hindu, but he must have thought that the thousands of people who visited the shrine before him cannot be wrong about its ability to grant good fortune. He offered prays and made offerings as part of his buddhist beliefs. Since then his films have been one success after another even at his late age he is still going strong. Was this a mere coincidence that brought him such success? Or was his success prompted by his visit to the shrine?
