World Religions heads West

March 18, 2016

(MULTIPLE PHOTOS) - Hadn't been to Vancouver in twenty years and had never taught about religions here. But I had a great time teaching on four different religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Sikhism) over one weekend. We paired the classes with great visits including this Shia mosque. Shias make up about 15% of the world’s Muslims and hence have fewer mosques in the West. They condense some of the prayers, thus praying 3 times per day by doubling up some prayers (which we witnessed).
