Hi All, so my family (and some high school students–my parents are teachers) was recently in China and while we were there we visited Lantau Island, which is the site of a famous Buddha statue and a Buddhist temple/monastery (not exactly sure which or if it was both). While there, they had some yellow sticks (not exactly sure what they are called) that you were invited to light and place, presumably as a prayer of sorts. I didn’t know how I felt about participating in that (i.e. is that kind of worshipping a false god? Is that bringing people together by participating in a cultural/religious practice of theirs?).
I ask this now because I am making a video of the trip and wondering if I should include video of us (or the high school students) participating in that.
