Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.
TOPIC: COLLEGE STUDENT FINAL PROJECT DUE BY MIDNIGHT
Posted on Nov.10.2013 @ 01:18PM EDTbytclynn
My name is Tarnesha and I am in college seeking a Bachelor's in Psychology. Right now I am taking a Human Relations Course that has me looking at different religions and ways of life. I chose Buddhist to learn more about and what I found out is very intriguing. The reason I am writing this email is because I have to interview someone from the Buddhist community. I have until Sunday Nov. 10, 2013 to get these questions answered and submit my 2500 word paper on my report and what I learned. If you can help please supply me with your name and the location of your practice along with the answers to the 10 questions listed below it would help me pass my class. If there are any questions that are too intrusive or you wish not to answer I totally understand. These are the questions and please be specific and give as much information you are willing to give:
When did you decide Buddhism?
Was anyone opposed to your decision?
Did you leave family behind?
Did you regret you decision at first? If so what made you stay?
Did you have different views about Buddhism before choosing this way of life?
If you could go back would you choose a different way of life or religion?
Did you get all the answers you were seeking?
How has Buddhism changed your life?
Are you happy with your decision?
are you still seeking answers?
Thanks in advance for helping me get a passing grade (hopefully an A) in my HUM130 class. Please feel free to contact me by the information below.
