Week 3: Reflection Essay

In a short essay, complete the following:

  1. Examine the life of Buddha. What kind of world did he come from? What are some of the sacrifices that me made on this path? How did this contribute to the foundations of Buddhism?
  2. Reflect on the personal experience of monks, wanderers, and pilgrims. How do you think these people look for Enlightenment or “Bodhi”? What is the role of “Dharma” and “Nirvana”? What is the role of personal experience within the religious experience. Use specific examples to illustrate your response and support your claims.
  3. Conclude by examining the current role of reflective learning in religion today. Interrogate the role of individual knowledge and communal learning.

This essay should be 3 pages in length (approximately 1500 words, not including a cover page and reference page) and must be in APA format. Your paper should include an introduction and thesis that clearly states your central claim, thoughtful examples and analysis in your body paragraphs, and a conclusion to finalize your thoughts.
