Speaking at a college. Any advice?
This up coming Wednesday, I'll be speaking to a Humanities class at a university. The teacher is an acquaintance of mine who goes to the same UU church I go to and has asked me to speak about my Buddhist, as well as Hindu, practice.
Any advice on the matter? I've spoken in front of crowds before (including college students), but never as a guest speaker. And, considering the school is in South Carolina, and it is a class on religion, I'm expecting there to be some awkwardness from at least one student. The teacher has told me that there are a few students who try to evangelize him every semester.
What are some subjects/topics that you feel are best left unsaid? What should the general feel/subject of the discussion to be?
