Questions include: What is the goal of the Buddhist path? What is the difference between compassion and pity? What are the benefits of meditation? What is karma and how does it work? How can we deal with fear? Wouldn't life be boring without attachment? Are Buddhists concerned with the environment? What does the Buddha say about romantic love and marriage?
