Can someone enlighten me on the signicance of the clapping?


In the book "A Year in the Life of a Shinto Shrine," the 2 claps/bow/clap is explained thus (at least in that particular shrine):

2 claps: yin and yang
bow: reverence
1 clap: integration of yin and yang into one

Pretty cool. Don't know if it's the same reason we have the same sequence or not.
