Making a Hindu Shrine
8W are learning about the religion of Hinduism in Religious Education, this term.
Today, we were learning about worship in the Mandir (temple).
We also learned that many Hindus have a shrine in their home. We decided to make a Hindu shrine in our classroom. We all placed images of Hindu gods on a table we had covered in a nice cloth. We then put some water, fruit and flowers on the table, as Hindu’s would do this to make offerings to their gods.
We lit some candles and incense sticks. The room smelt lovely. We put some Hindu puja (worship) music on, and thought about how it might feel to be part of a Hindu family with a shrine at home.
