How do you practice Buddhism? Who are some Buddhist masters? What does a Buddhist temple look like? Get answers to these questions and many more on a tour of Milwaukee’s Buddhist temples. The program includes an evening lecture to introduce Buddhism and its practices. The following Saturday travel to the east side to learn about Zen meditation at a Zen center. Then visit a Tibetan Buddhist site to learn about an esoteric form of Buddhism that is growing in popularity. Travel to the south side to visit a Theravada Buddhist temple operated by the Lao community and a Mahayana temple operated by Vietnamese Buddhists. The day concludes with an exploration of Nichiren Buddhism at a Japanese Soka Gakkai center on the west side. Along the way we will enjoy fellowship at a fine Asian restaurant while dining on delicious Asian cuisine.
