Buddhist Current Event

In my current event I chose the Buddhist monks rampage. In Sri Lanka, Buddhist monks go on a rampage killing Muslims and burning down their homes. This current event had a negative effect on the Buddhist followers of the religion.

Buddhist Art

For my Buddhist art I chose the sculpture named Buddha made somewhere around 618-906 made by the tang dynasty in Ancient China. This is important because it shows Buddha as an enlightened one.

Buddhist Song

For my song I chose Birth of Buddha.
The lyrics are:
In the ancient land
A child is born
once in a land long ago
and the gods and the men
so they said
Homage to the lord.
They relate to Buddhism because they remind people of Buddhas birth and teachings.
