INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM

Instead of taking Buddhism as a religion that is characterized by idolization/deification and rituals, this course aims to explore Buddhism as a philosophy of life that offers ways of undertaking quest of selfhood, or an education oriented toward enlightenment or liberation from dukkha (embodied by the Buddha’s Awakening) through conducting the threefold spiritual cultivation of practicing Precepts (ethical conducts), Meditation (mental discipline) and Wisdom(insight into the ultimate reality).
