Please provide a short summary of this event:  This is a Buddhist chant used in meditation. This chant is sung or spoken in Mandarin.
How did this document, event display the role of religion in daily life?  The art of meditation should be appreciated in all religions. It can be used to get in touch with oneself or spirituality.
How did this document, event reflect diversity in human life?  The fact that anyone has the opportunity to meditate should show the diversity within the chant.
How did it reflect/influence your studies at Eastern?  I’m taking Chinese so I am almost certain that this chant can help with pronounciation.
What do you want to learn, do after participating in this event or with this document?  I’d love to be able to sing this in Mandarin and hopefully impress my Chinese teacher.
