Project #91670 - Religion Homework

Respond in essay form to the two (2) topics below.

Responses to these questions are expected to be well developed and reasonably detailed essays. Your answers should be at least three (3) double-spaced typewritten pages each. Be sure to answer all parts of multipart questions.

Your answers should clearly demonstrate your understanding of the assigned readings and any Web sites that may be assigned. Refer primarily to these materials for your answers, but also complement this information, when necessary, with material from other print or online sources. Do not merely copy answers from your sources, but when you make use of such material, be sure you cite it properly (i.e., with footnotes or endnotes).

    a.   Review Kessler's introduction ("The Problem of Rebirth") to section 7.5 of Chapter 7 and Sri Aurobindo's "The Reincarnating Soul" (the first reading in section 7.5).
