This assignment is a (minimally) three page, three-part (Headings: Context, Analysis & Reaction) paper. The Context addresses the backstory and circumstances (drawn from The World’s Religions book) of the chosen piece of writing (drawn from the The World’s Wisdom book). The Analysis section should take a careful look, scrutinize, using close reading in order to get at the intent or meaning of the writing.
The Context (back story, religious context) should be one page; the Analysis, where you show me how intelligently you can look at a piece of religious writing, should be a page and a half. The final part, your Reaction, should make the piece of scripture you have chosen personal – show me why you were attracted to write it.
Use , Context, Analysis & Reaction as the three headings within this short paper; start the first paragraph of each section with the relevant word. Context: In the first section of this paper I will review Buddhism, etc. Analysis: Turning our attention to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, etc. Reaction: This speak spoke to me, or brought up feelings, or reminds me of, etc.
Use quotes and have Sources on a separate page, after the three-page+ Textual Analysis Paper
