Haley Veronyak How Life of Pi relates to the Hindu Temple This quote reminds me of the Hindu temple because in this quote it is describing almost exactly what we saw at the temple. There where baskets at each shrine and there where flowers located around pillars. Clanging of bells reminds me of when the class participated in the Hindu prayer. During the Hindu prayer monks rung bells to announce that the prayer was about to begin. The patter of bare feet also reminds me of the temple because we where required to remove shoes and if we wanted to socks as well. This also reminds me of the Hindu temple because I remember seeing other Hindus praying in bare feet. Not only does imagery help me remember my experience at the temple but also simple things such as referring to Hindu rituals. “…coming for darshan and performing puja” reminds me on the temple because I think that we also came to see puja. When we where in the smaller room when the two men where helping demonstrate, I believe, from hordes of research, that this was puja. This quote reminds me of our visit to the Hindu Temple because there where many shrines of many different gods there, and I noticed that a lot of them had archways such as the ones described in this quote. This quote very well describes the Hindu Temple in my opinion. One thing I noticed about the Hindu Temple is I felt very at home. Everything about the temple was very warm and welcoming to me. I felt the marble and granite on the walls, floors etc. made me feel very grand and royal almost, it made me feel like it was an honor to be invited into the temple. The rugs and architecture made the temple feel very warm and welcoming, almost as if it reminds you of home, but at the same time reminds you your in this grand place filled with stories and culture. The people where also very welcoming. They invited us in with warm welcoming arms and did not look down on us for not knowing tons about their religion. The people made you feel at home by letting us participate in ceremonies and prayers. This quote reminds me of both the Hindu Temple and the Mosque. This quote reminds me of both the Hindu temple and the mosque because both religions are doing exactly what the quote states; loving god! It as simple as that. How Life of Pi relates to the Mosque One thing I noticed about the mosque, is it was nothing like the temple. It didn‟t have supplies imported from India, it doesn't have fancy rugs or hand carved objects. It didn‟t have fancy painting or anything of that sort. But that‟s what I loved. Sure the temple was grand and beautiful but the mosque reminded you that you didn‟t need to be rich to be religious. The mosque would probably be more welcoming to people who are poor, people who feel intimidated by praying in a huge temple. Both of these quotes remind me of the mosque because they both are referring to a temple being just any old place. Now I‟m not saying that the mosque wasn‟t nice, but it wasn‟t designed specifically to be a mosque. Unlike the temple which took years to complete. This quote reminded me of the temple, because in this quote Mr. Kumar happens to be talking about Jesus. Therefore this quote reminded me of Islam because they believe that another prophet will be brought to earth. This quote reminded me of the mosque, because once again it reminded me that Islam's didn‟t need a huge fancy place to go pray in. They are religiously devoted and will pray where they feel comfortable. P.B.U.H. means peace be upon him. I learned this at the mosque in two different ways. When our „tour guide‟ kept saying it, and when one of our classmates asked what it means. So this quote reminds me of the mosque for one simple reason; I now know what P.B.U.H. means, and why they say it. When the movie is over use the arrow keys to view next slide I loves the Hindu temple. Its architecture and beauty really made if interesting to learn about there religion. The mosque was joyful! It was interesting to see how different but yet similar the two religions where! Overall (besides the food. HAHA.) The field trip was a great success and I can agree we all had loads of fun!
