Except for a three-foot statue of Buddha in the midst of bonsai trees, dwarf bamboos and a flower garden, this three-bedroom house looks no different from the single-family homes clustered near a park on West Street. But once inside, the sweet scent of burning incense greets the visitor. A Buddhist monk in a brown robe is usually found meditating at an elaborate altar decked with red candles, flowers, fruits and more Buddha statues.
