A Place of Worship
Take a look at the following video about a Hindu Temple.
What questions do you want to ask? What clues are there as to how people worship? Can you tell that people care about it? Why? Are the 6 senses used in worship? What do people enjoy about worship? How might it help them live their lives? What would they miss if they stayed away? Why? What do they do?’
Imagine a Hindu family visiting a local church and a Christian family visiting a mandir. How would they feel? Might they be anxious, or feel at home? Curious? Comfortable? Out of their depth? Why? What questions would they have?
Being a polite visitor. Make a list of ways to be polite when visiting someone else’s home. Compare these with some of the symbols of respect believers may use in a place of worship. Think about how to show respect when you visit a building dedicated to a religion you don’t follow. Discuss the need to respect the quiet. How would they feel if someone didn’t behave in their special place? Write/draw 3 rules they would expect people to honour when in their special place.
