The Golden Statue

Overview

In this lesson pupils will read an adapted version of a Buddhist legend that encourages them to reflect on how the generosity with which a gift is given is more important than the amount donated.

Pupils will discuss what they value and how they would choose to donate money, if given the opportunity. The lesson also includes opportunities for pupils to try mindfulness techniques inspired by Buddhist traditions.
