On October 20, 2003 Pioneer Press peered into the classroom of Bhante Punnaji, a renowned Sri Lankan Buddhist teacher from Toronto. Currently, Punnaji is illuminating children at the Cambodian Temple in Minnesota on the meaning behind the five Buddhist precepts. Part of his teachings were based on the relationships between Buddhism and Christianity. Punnaji explains that "in Buddhism, you don't really worship. You follow teachings."
