In this essay, you will be considering how the elements of Buddhas Eightfold Path and the basic ideas Rahula gives us about Buddhism or the nature of Buddhas teaching might be applied to the information in the documentary Doing Time Doing Vipassana, a documentary that explores an experiment in whichvipassana meditation was taught in Indias Tihar prison.The question to write on is:
Can it be argued that all eight parts of the Eightfold Path and some ideas from Rahulas introductory chapter on Buddha/Buddhist ideas show up in one way or another in this documentary? What, if anything should we learn from the experiment in Tihar? Give reasons in support of your position. Why might someone else reasonably disagree and how would you respond?(50 pts.)
For the first part of this essay (35 pts.) you need toconsider whether all eight parts of the Path show up in some way and I suggest the following method of proceeding (note that here I am talking about method; I amnot outlining what you should include as I did in the question on Frankl):
For the second part of the essay (15 pts) which covers what, if anything, we should learn from the documentary as well as an objection and response, I recommend putting together your argument and letting it sit a day or two and then revisiting it. (Actually I recommend doing this with the entire exam and anything you write for this class.)
In this essay, the main bulk of the essay should be the first part. I would expect the second part to be about one-fourth of the essay, perhaps a bit less.
As with the Frankl essay, give citations in the way described for the Trump essay. The difference will be that to refer to a place in the documentary, just indicate in parentheses the time when it occurred. So, (34:12) would indicate that whatever you were referring to occurred at 34 minutes and 12 seconds.
