Repeats every week 5 times.

Buddhism is a rich and deep spiritual tradition that offers tools to develop kindness and compassion in our minds. 

In this brief course, we explore concepts such as dharma and karma and samsara - what they mean and why they matter.

With a look at the historical Buddha, his teachings, and the traditions that have come down from him, this course offers a broad overview of the key elements of Buddhism and its practice. 

In five short sessions,  you'll get an introduction to the major terms and concepts of Buddhism  a fast tour of the basics to enable you to take the next steps if you want more.

Topics covered include:

  • The Four Noble Truths
  • Different kinds of Buddhism: Theravadan, Mahayana, Vajrayana, etc.
  • Buddha's teachings in a gradual form for the practice of one individual...where to start, what next, etc.
  • A brief introduction to meditation

In keeping with our long-standing tradition, Kadampa Center does not charge a fee for any Dharma course. These teachings are too precious to allow money to be an obstacle for anyone to hear them!  We do, of course, have expenses to offer the course, so we happily welcome any heart-felt donations

Because of the pandemic, seats are limited and registration is required. 

We will require wearing a mask (except the instructor) and practice social distancing.

The course runs July 22 through August 19, 10 am - 11:30 am.

Instructor for this course is Jim Sutorus
