Kang, (Haira) Esther As Am 71, W 5-5:50 Due Date: week 4 Response 2 “Sasana Sakon and the New Asian American” by Todd LeRoy Perreira, discusses about the interracial and interreligious couples at a Thai Buddhist Temple in Silicon Valley, the acceptance of the phenomenon, and how the couple make the two religions possible. The increase in marrying outside one’s own race made an increase in diversity among Thai Buddhist temples. The children who are born of parents of different races are never pressured to choose one religion but are instead encouraged to practice both. Perreira mentions sasana sakon throughout his article. Sakon means “Western” and sasana means “religion”. “Sasana sakon captures the universalism that is unique to the experience of interracial and/or interreligious couples and their mutual openness to each other’s tradition without collapsing important distinctions ( 115).” Perreira gives an example of a boy named Lukchai who is half Thai and half White.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
