Students in Comparative Religions enjoyed a great but marathon day of learning! They first visited the IBPS Buddhist Temple and Lisle where they were treated to a Dharma talk focusing on the desires (Tahna) implicit in cell phones!
Next we attended the BAPS Hindu Temple, the largest Hindu Temple in the Midwest. The building is made of 40,000 pieces of stone hand carved in India and assembled like legos (i.e. without any steel or additional support).
The final destination was a Gurdwara in Palatine. After learning about the Sikh tradition, we were treated to Langar, the Sikh tradition of providing food as an act of selfless service.
