You are a Buddhist talking to a Hindu, who doesn’t know much about Buddhism. Explain to them
in a way they can understand the common ground you share and also the important differences that
distinguish Buddhism from Hinduism.
To be most persuasive, remember to always have a critical voice in your head, so that you clearly spell out your position and consider other possibilities. Because it is only one page, get right to the point. To write well, you need to consider both what to include and what to leave out. Make sure everything that you are saying answers the question being asked. It is also better to say a few things well than a lot of things superficially. What matters to me most is that you make a good case! I do not care about how you structure your essay (the standard introduction, body and conclusion is unnecessary). For both options, please cite the textbook to indicate where you are getting your informaton. Quotations are unnecessary (Molloy, page number) at the end of the relevant sentence will suffice (after the first citation, the page number alone is all you need to include).
expect both a clear explanation of one religion and a presentation of that religion in a way that a person from another religion can understand. So, clearly and convincingly outlinehow Buddhism resembles and differs from Hinduism It would also to help to go beyond basic information, to give the reader a sense of what to do with the information you provide. For example, (why) are the similarities and differences significant? While doing so, explain/compare using terms and concepts that the other person can understand and appreciate. Remember also to be sensitive and respectful in your presentation, both of Buddhism and of the religion of your conversation partner.
