What it means to be a follower of Buddha?


Year 5 have been learning about what it means to be a follower of Buddha. We have learnt about Siddhartha Gautama’s life and teaching, including the five precepts and the three jewels. We then contemplated morals and ethic codes and designed our own set of rules for life or governing principles. We finished off the week hearing a presentation from a real-life follower of Buddha. We had the opportunity to interview him, in order to find out more about our topic.
