The Emergence of the “Great Vehicle”

Part 5

The first 10 minutes of this lecture is an overview of a test the students took. We left it in because it focuses on some of the main points of Buddhism by referring to student work. It also gives some basic instruction on how to present ideas and what it means to write a "compare and contrast" essay.
