Visiting Buddhist Temple

Tomorrow as part of my World Religions class we will be visiting a Buddhist temple. While I won’t me converting, worshiping Buddha, or practicing any eastern form of meditation, I do want to engage on some level. My hope is that I can empathize with those who will be at the service, understanding what specific motivations draw them there, and how they see this ancient religion as relevant for their lives.   If I can empathize and stay engaged, my mission will be accomplished for what I can get out of the experience.
