Buddhism in a Nutshell

Buddhism in a Nutshell is an introductory course on Buddhism for complete beginners. It presents basic Buddhist philosophy and principles within the Tibetan Mahayana context, and provides simple meditation instruction. We will look at the history of Buddhism and the life Shakymuni Buddha, as well as his main discovery of the human condition, the four noble truths. Also, we will discuss the primary feature of the Mahayana Tradition, the Bodhichitta motivation, the wish to liberate all sentient beings from cyclic existence.

    I enjoyed it very much. The speaker was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
    However, two hour straight lecture was a bit tiresome.

      I'll try to remember to ask if anyone needs a break, and please feel free to ask for one. Hope we see you again.
