In the 1980s, Bill Moyers interviewed the famous mythologist, Joseph Campbell, over a series of shows for PBS. Campbell mentioned this phrase for success: “Follow your Bliss.” Later, Campbell joked that one should “Follow their blisters.” The phrase became very popular.
As we study this chapter, answer this question: What is “bliss” to you? Is bliss successfully completing a task? Is it love, happiness or joy? Compare your understanding with the “bliss” of the Buddhist nirvana.

Our biblical narrative is full of gaps. We get descriiptions of action and some dialog, but we are often left to wonder about the thoughts and motivations of the major characters, and there are plenty of folks that we don’t hear from at all. Using only your HarperCollins Study Bible and your imagination, please write a reflection that does the following…
Part 1: Find something missing in the narrative and use your imagination and creative writing skills to finish or expand on the story.
Part 2: In a concluding paragraph (or two) explain some of the choices you made in your creative writing and what your biblical imaginings add to our understanding of the text.
Example(Feel free to use if needed): fill in the gaps of how Jesus actually resurrected and what the first thing he did was etc then go back to the actual text about how when the widows opened the cave and saw an angel waiting for them instead of Jesus.

Describe the basic characteristics of the Vedas.
Explain in what ways Vedic sacrifices/rituals are understood as (a) benefiting the patron/sponsor of the ritual, (b) benefiting the gods, and (c) supporting the cosmic order (ṛta).
How do the Upaniṣads differ from the early parts of the Vedas? Trace and discuss the development of the new religious trends, in beliefs and practices, that they represent.
Instructions: Make sure to use the relevant secondary readings/sources from our classes so far, adding references to them throughout the essay. If possible, also provide examples from the primary sources (see: Excerpts from the Vedas: R. N. Dandekar and R. Weiler, “The Brahmanical Tradition: The Vedic Period,” in: Ainslee T. Embree (ed.), Sources of Indian Tradition, Vol. 1, pp. 9–28; for excerpts from the Upaniṣads, see the PPT slides). Your essay should clearly reflect that you have read all the relevant assigned readings/sources. You can find them on eLearn. Any additional sources should be reliable academic sources (journal articles, book chapters, books, etc.). Most internet websites do not count as reliable academic materials. Be careful to cite all the sources properly. You can use any citation style, as long as you use the same one throughout the essay. Make sure to add a bibliography at the end of the essay. The bibliography does not count toward the required essay length (1000 words).
