"Some of them think we'll try to do some Voodoo stuff, no. We don't do all the chanting and trying to poison you or anything like that," said Tran.
Other local Buddhists say it's difficult to practice their religion because there are no temples in Sioux Falls. The nearest is in Sioux City, Iowa. But Tran says a temple isn't a requirement to faithfully observe Buddhism.
"He doesn't know where Nike Vapormax Red And White to turn. I'm wealthy, I'm famous, I cheated on my wife with many women, he could go to a monk and what should I do? And they will lead him to a different path," said Tran.

Last month, golfer Tiger Woods ended his long silence and publicly admitted to extramarital affairs. Woods' televised apology also included a recommitment to his Buddhist faith as a way to straighten out his troubled personal life.

The Buddhist shrine at Lovely Nails is a curiosity to customers.
"It's unique, different. I guess I really never focused on it before, but it's unique," said Tiffany Bieganowski of Sioux Falls.
"Like for Catholics, you can go to church on Sunday, confess the sin and you be done with it. No, that's not for Buddhism, your sin stays with you," said Tran.
Each morning, the workers at Lovely Nails salon in Sioux Falls bow in reverence to this small shrine near the front door. They leave treats, including coffee and even cigarettes for the Buddha god of fortune, hoping the offerings will lead to a profitable day.
