Are there any Buddhists on tonight?

Please, no jokes. I need some enlightenment concerning etiquette. I have been invited to a gathering, and need to show respect to the host.

I'm Buddhist. You can show respect by being yourself and not voluntarily bringing up uncomfortable topics. If this is about saying grace or something, I bow my head in respect of there household- not there religion. I won't speak grace. If you have other concerns don't hesitate.

Thank you so much. I understand the bowing part a little... They honor everyone they meet, and are truly honored by everyone they meet. I think?
Please comment more. I found the gentleman's wallet in a shopping mall and took the time to drive 1 hour to their home and return it personally. They are a truly likable family.

I see. It is the gentleman that is the Buddhist then? In that case you have little to worry a out. They will not force you into anything uncomfortable and you basically just need to bring your self and be kind because that is all they will be doing haha

Still none... What do you need to know specifically? Buddhists are a serious religious sect that respects life, and the living... They are better at following Christ than many Christians. Remember the wise men from the East that came seeking?
