What is the place of worship in every religion? and what does that name means?
at least submit the name of your religious place of worship and meaning of that name if it is not given.
In Zen, it is a place of practice, rather than worship. Zendo means the room where we sit in Zen meditation, and we sit on a zafu (small sitting cushion) on top of a zabuton (large sitting cushion) and this practice is zazen, which means "sitting zen."
Buddhist worship is generally done at a temple. We also worship at stupas, which are burial memorials for famous teachers. And we go on pilgrimage to the places in Northern India and Nepal where the Buddha was born, lived, Awakenened, taught, and passed away.
In Christianity, the place of worship is called a temple, or church, or cathedral. "Church" refers not only to the building, but also to the community. (Cathedrals are grand structures, and, as far as I know, are built by the Catholics and Anglicans, and Episcopalians.
As Jews, we worship in a synagogue, often called a temple.
Muslims worship in mosques.
In English, we call the place of Hindu worship a temple, but I'm not sure of the name in Hindi or Sanskrit.
Pagans and Druids worship in sacred groves, places of tall trees, or clearings in woods.
Shinto practitioners, in the ancient animist religion of Japan, have temples, but also find reverence and a place of worship in nature, in which they find kami, or nature spirits.
Aboriginal Australians migrate hundreds of miles along Songlines, and sing the journey, worshiping as they go.
Those are the ones that I know from my own practice and my friends, and a bit of reading.
May we find ways of connecting with the Divine everywhere and everywhen.
very good information regarding diversity of religion but still need more particular word instead of temple, instead of english words i want religious words like temple is english but mandir is exact, mosque is english but masjid is perfect.Thanks fo
We don't "worship" as how other religion do but our temple's name (Taoism temple) is called Chi in Nature in English, which is a direct translation from Chinese. This actually relate to "undersatnding about how nature works". check my hub out and see my web for the info~

Does one have to go to church to be close to God?I mean Jesus taught out in the open, not in a church. Do you really have to go to church in order to be close to God, or can we worship him outside?

Would The World be A Better Place With Out Religion?I see all the fighting over Jesus and religion and I often wonder if the world wouldn't be a better place with out religion. After all no one has ever proved that God exists have they? What do you think?
