The Buddhism class kids puppet show
What a great show- the kids have worked but it payed off.
The story is about Prince Siddartha ( who later became Buddha ) and his compassion towards a swan which was shot down with an arrow by his cousin Prince Devadatta. The kids seemed shy in rehersal but during the show they were load and clear - it was fantastic.
I have been one of their teachers at Fo Guan Shan Temple in Melbourne this year and I just didn't want it to be like a boring sunday school - so we try to have lots of fun!!! They made the puppets and the scenery themselves. They are absolutely beautiful children.
They are even sitting still for a 5 minute meditation session - which is a fantastic!
