Basic Teachings of the Buddha

Before there was Buddhism, there was an historical figure from northern India who dedicated his life to investigating the human condition. After great focused effort he realized a way of life liberated from unease. At first he struggled with how to present his insights, but soon he devised a framework of teaching and training. This course explores the early discourses, discussions and dialogues that outline this framework.  
 
We will uncover the personality of the Buddha as he presents teachings and develops and encourages his vision of training. The course will include meditation, lecture, discussion, and reading from Basic Teachings of the Buddha by Glenn Wallis.

Taught by Ryushin Jan Freier & Kikan Mike Howard
