After successfully completing a module on Hindu Dharma, on 12th March, Year 1 students received a warm welcome at the Gujarat Temple in Preston. Students were greeted by receiving a tilaka. This is part of the Hindu ritual of marking someone’s forehead with a fragrant paste, as a welcome and expression of honour when they arrive. During the guided tour of the temple, students were able to see the visual richness of the dharmic tradition by looking at the statues and images of the Hindu deities, as well as observe puja worship from individuals visiting the temple. Students also experienced a guided meditation, yoga style.
