This week we were learning about Buddhism. We explored how Buddhists follow the teachings of Buddha, and how they can use a statue (known as the Buddharupa) to help them feel at peace and calm. Some Buddhists meditate when they sit by the Buddharupa.
One of the richest visual objects in Tibetan Buddhism is the mandala which represents an imaginary palace that is contemplated during meditation.
We designed and coloured our own mandalas.
