Buddhism and Descartes Paper

How are both the Buddha and Descartes critical of the body and knowing through the senses? While they have very different approaches to the process of enlightenment, they both remain wary of relying on the body/senses for knowledge, enlightenment, fulfillment, etc. Compare/contrast both Buddhism and Cartesian philosophy on the body/mind distinction and the process of knowing. You are welcome to compare/contrast them on other additional topics but these are the required ones. You can certainly bring Hume in but you need to at least use Descartes/Buddhism.
