I am teaching the kids about different cultures and religions. This week we are learning about India and Buddhism. We were going to go to a Buddhist service yesterday in New Bedford, MA but got snowed in. Tonight we learned how a Buddhist worships. We found out that Buddhists have shrines in thier homes and so we built our own. The kids picked out each special item and we already had the Buddha statue (hard to see in the picture because it is dark, but the Buddha statue is right between the candles.) We learned the significance for each item too.
