Buddhist Temples

We visited another of many Buddhist temples. Buddhists believe what you give will come back to you. So they try to be extra nice and generous. We knelt and bowed and made coin donations. There was a circus type display and we tried to toss our coins in a moving bucket for extra luck. Like so many religions, there are all kinds of ornate statues to honor Buddha. He was inspired to lead a simple life, calming the mind and spreading kindness. He reached enlightenment and stuck around for 44 more years to share his insights with followers.
