A Map of Compassion

Students will critically examine and discuss the image of the Eleven-Headed Bodhisattva of Compassion. They will then discuss and view examples of mind maps. In small groups students will create an original mind map to organize their thoughts and ideas around the concept of compassion.

Students will be able to:

describe and analyze what they see in the Eleven-Headed Bodhisattva of Compassion;
discuss symbolic and actual demonstrations of compassion; and
collaborate in groups to design and create a mind map as a graphical representation of compassion.
