In RE we have been learning about Hindusim. We discussed the Aum symbol and how Hindus believe this is a special sign for God. It is often seen in homes and Hindu temples.
We explored a range of Hindu Gods and their different qualities, which then helped us to create our own Hindu Gods.
We recently learned about the worship called Puja where worshippers take off their shoes to worship. They usually begin with the sacred word ‘Aum’ then repeat prayers (mantras) and the name of their favourite gods or goddesses. Most Hindu homes have a holy shrine where puja takes place. Having a shrine at home means that families can worship together. Each shrine contains a puja tray, which holds several important items.
