What is your prayer?

What is your name?  A name for a Javanese means a prayer. Whatever a name  they give to, is a prayer. Either a kid name, house or the coronation name , all is a prayer. That is a wish to God.

The same things they give name to a vessel or boat for a fisherman. The fishermen write their prayer on the body of their vessel.

The picture above was taken in fishermen village in Drini beach, Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta. Ngudi rejeki means  seek of fortune. Berkah means  blessing.
