Write a brief, informal reflection paper (approximately 500 words) analyzing any themes or issues you have found interesting in the assigned readings. You might, for instance, discuss your reactions as a reader, identify and evaluate major themes, analyze or compare authors’ perspectives, discuss implications or questions the authors do not address, analyze a reading in light of something else you have read, or reflect on the readings in relation to your own life experience.
You may select any of the reading assigned from Feb. 4 until the paper deadline (Feb. 11). Primary sources (Hymns from the Rg Veda or the Chandogya Upanisad) and the textbook are both acceptable. Be selective: do not try to cover everything!
