Worship and Traditions of Budhism
Followers of Buddhism have a number of practices. One of the most popular is veneration of the Buddha. The devotions are carried out in a shrine room, and most Buddhists have a shrine room in their homes. In addition, meditation and chanting are an important part of Buddhist devotional practice.
Meditation is used to tame the mind and has many forms. Because Buddha was enlightened through meditation, it is an important part of Buddhist daily life. Chanting is used both in the temple and in the home and is an important part of festivals. Pilgrimages form an important part of Buddhist ritual. Most of the destinations have to do with places that Buddha lived and died.
