We have some great questions this week, you can choose between defining Theravada and Mahayana schools of Buddhism, or thinking more about the translation issues around how we understand the Sanskrit term dukkha . Both are wonderful questions that I think will help open up some great discussion about this ancient tradition that has spread all around the world, including important communities right here in the United States. The translation issue in particular is key because this is a tradition that has spread so widely that there are practitioners from a variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Additionally, here is another short video from the Oprah Winfrey Network - as you watch it, please take a moment to consider where the textbook and the video differ, if not in exact details, do you see any differences in emphasis between them? What kinds of images does the video show us, and how do those images expand on the material available from the textbook?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
