There are many ways to get rid of physical miasma in the folk culture of temple fairs in Taiwan. For example, lying on the ground in a row and letting the Mazu Luan sedan chair pass the blessing from above the body can remove the pain and bad luck. Lying on the ground and letting the Ba Jia Jiang (eight generals) dance their weapons, spread their teeth and dance their claws, to drive away from the evil and bad things from the body, to protect your health and good luck in your career, is another way.
