Students Gain Insight From Buddhist Monk


Gen Dorje, a Buddhist monk, recently visited OLCHS.  His visit coincided with Dan Doyle’s English 3 Honors study of Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. This was the second year in a row Gen visited Dan’s classes.

On November 22, 2017, Gen helped the students build background knowledge of Buddhism and meditation in order for them to gain a better understanding of the novel.  His question and answer period ended with a meditation with the students. Many students were surprised to find Gen funny and said his talk will definitely help them understand Siddhartha.
