Y2 Maple trip to Radha Krishna Temple

Posted by

We are thinking about Hinduism this half term and so we visited a Radha Krishna Temple (a branch of Hinduism).

We had a wonderful day learning about the different ways Hindus worship in the temple and the importance of showing love and care to those around us.

Our welcoming nun explained the many rituals Hindus observe including praying with prayer beads, chanting songs, spraying drops of water and using smoke from fire to cleanse the body. She also showed us how a 3m long piece of fabric can be used to make a sari!

Next, we saw the various objects used in a Hindu temple including many musical instruments (drums, a conch and symbols). Finally, we finished the day by joining in with some singing and dancing.
