I have, in my trusty note pad, some notes of my own about lay altars. At some point I'll make them more coherent and post them here :smile:

Gassho,

By the way Jikan, aside from Tendai and Pretendai, is the video a standard presentation and explanation for a lay altar in Tendai? :thanks:

Although I can't speak for Jikan, from what I understand, the "standard" in Japan is different from the "standard" in the West. Japan lay butsudans have many levels and layers with such things as what is described in the video plus ancestral tablets, small bells, wooden fish bell (mokugyo), golden dangling ornamants (the heavens), images of the founder, of family members etc.

Western style butsudans tend to have a lot less because of space/family/cost constraints

Gassho,
Seishin
