“Jesus and Buddha” For your first major paper assignment, I want you to compare the teachings of Jesus and Buddha. In your 1200 word analysis, please select four (4) aspects from both figures that seem similar to you. You may choose your ideas from our textbook chapter, “A Flowering of Faith: Christianity and Buddhism,” and/or you may do an Internet search for additional philosophical sayings and writings. Please note that this is a comparison paper – you need to focus on similarities NOT differences in the teachings. For each similarity you choose, please have a reference/quote from Buddha AND Jesus. For instance, if you choose the topic of “forgiveness,” please include what the two enlightened Avatars said about forgiveness. Then do a comparison and analysis of both quotes! You need to write in your own words except when you are quoting. Please put quotation marks around the quotes and cite the sources (our textbook or an Internet site or other book – make it clear where you found the quote!). It must be clear to the reader which ideas/words belong to you and what you are quoting/borrowing. Remember that Turnitin is an anti-plagiarism program – it will detect what is NOT yours. Do not include anyone else’s analysis of your quotes. This paper needs to reflect your own opinions and thoughts. Please keep the quotes to a minimum length – most of the 1200 words should be your wording/ideas. Please write a specific 100 word introduction that outlines which four topics you will write on. Then write at least 250 words per topic. Finally, conclude with a 100 word conclusion that states what you learned in your comparison. You may write more than 1200 words. At the end of your paper, include a Works Cited list detailing the location of your quotes (this list is in addition to the 1200 minimum word count). If you only quoted from our textbook, then your list will contain only one item! For an example of a works cited list, please Google “MLA works cited list.” Possible topics to include (you do not need to limit yourself to these):· Unconditional Love · Forgiveness · Materialism & Wealth · How to Treat Others · Avoidance of Suffering (avoidance of Desire) · Right Conduct · Right Attitude · Right Living · Witnessing God and the Holy Spirit: Prayer/Contemplation/Meditation/Nature · How to Attain Peace · Faith and Letting Go, Letting God The “Jesus and Buddha” paper constitutes 20% of your final grade.
