Discussion

I need help with a English question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Discussion Board Instructions

For this Unit, you will continue in 3 or 4 member groups. Please use this peer network to help motivate and clarify your decision for Unit 2. You will write Unit 2 Reflection on 1 of 4 Indian Religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism or Sikhism.

Use this community as a classroom. I can see your comments, but I will not intrude much to help you work through the major point of this week’s conversation. Take advantage of these discussions. It will improve your perspective and your score on the next Unit Reflection on Indian Religions.

Chapter 5-6 Comparison and Contrast of Indian Religions

This week, we focus on Chapters 5 and 6 as well as Canvas resources I provide to help students who may not have textbook access. Everyone will have something to contribute after reading, viewing and considering one another’s points of view.

Keep the Five Points of Inquiry in mind as you read and discuss our textbooks. Healthy discussion is a discourse, which means you should communicate and reply to one another. See the Discussion Board Sample and Netiquette listed in the Class Policies page as you discuss our online readings.

Areas of comparison and contrast include these and others you may choose:

  • Duty (dharma) to society – What is the good life for Hindus, Buddhists and/or Jain?
  • Karma (action) – What is the purpose of bodily existence?
  • Reincarnation – How does this cycle work for each community?
  • Liberation – How does one find release, enlightenment or freedom? Why do these 3 differ?
