This week you read two short passages by two very famous Hindus – Mahatma Gandhi and Sri Ramakrishna. For your discussion board, choose one of  these readings and discuss your thoughts and reaction to it.

  1. In your response you can respond to any of the following questions:
  • Why did you choose this particular reading? what interested you about it?
  • Did you find the reading beautiful? or disturbing?
  • What did you learn about Hinduism from this reading?
  • Is there something about the reading that confused you or that you would like to know more about?
  • Was there an idea or opinion in the reading that you strongly agreed or disagreed with? Why do you agree/disagree with it?
  1. You must also provide at least one similarity or difference between the way Hinduism is presented by both authors (this is where you can include your second quote from the other reading).
