If, by chance sometime in the future I ever get the chance to do pilgrimage to the Four Sacred Shrines or go to any temple in a Theravadin land, will I ever get looked at strangely because I'm a Westerner? I know when I was a Hindu, sometimes I would get weird looks and I know some of their temples won't let Westerners inside the premises. I don't figure this would happen in Buddhism, at least not the no-admittance thing. But I just want to be sure. Thanks.
