vertical line Posted on Nov.10.2013 @ 01:18PM EDT by tclynn
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:


  1. When did you decide Buddhism?
  2. Was anyone opposed to your decision?
  3. Did you leave family behind?
  4. Did you regret you decision at first? If so what made you stay?
  5. Did you have different views about Buddhism before choosing this way of life?
  6. If you could go back would you choose a different way of life or religion?
  7. Did you get all the answers you were seeking?
  8. How has Buddhism changed your life?
  9. Are you happy with your decision?
  10. 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.


Respectfully,

vertical line Hi Tamesha,

I was brought up Catholic but could never keep up with the best boys for altar duty.

Became a born again Baptist in mt early 20's, gave up on that because of all the hypocrites.

Then I got interested in Buddhism because it included so much attention of letting go of suffering or had been sin.

Let's see, I really am not a conformist, so I do follow a bit of my own way of making life meaningful.

I am very open to anyone who has a Buddhist interest, we could share a lot of info, cuz I have a ton of books on Buddhism.
