Just curious regarding the little statement on the top right hand corner of the poster…

“for non-muslims only”

Why would this be the case?

In some majority Muslim countries, it can be against the law to entice a Muslim person to convert to another religion, so often non-Muslim religious events will ask Muslim people not to attend. I am not sure it’s the case here, but seeing that it’s listed as in Malaysia, that might be the reason.


Thank you for the explanation :pray:

Is the talk’s title inspired by Gwendolyn Brooks by any chance?

A TRANSCRIPT would be helpful for those who have difficulties in assessing Online Event or Video. Metta :pray:

Just a heads-up bhante @sujato, I think you meant to refer to the economics concept of marginal utility instead of opportunity cost in your comments about ice cream in the talk! :anjal:
