Imagine that you are Krishna and have been given the assignment to write a review of the Buddha’s teaching (as explained in the video “Footprint of the Buddha” and in Oxtoby’s chapter on Buddhism. How would Krishna respond to the Buddha’s teaching? To write this essay, you should imitate the model of a recent book review from The New York Times. Begin with a brief summary of the contents of the “book,” then offer your own critical interpretation and analysis. Be sure to attach a copy of the model review on which you are basing your essay. Reviews can be found on the New York Times website (www.nytimes.com). By “recent” review, we mean that you should choose a review that has been published within the last month. It is important to show that you have read the review and have learned from its example.
