All topics interested the teachers and students very much.  After the dharma teaching, the students got to practice meditation. The students meditated well and had good meditation experiences.  They felt comfortable and agreed that meditation is a good thing.  Many of them were interested in Buddhism because they had some background in Buddhism.  Some were interested in the afterlife and they were able to answer Buddhist questions in all topics correctly.
