Buddhism in Modern Life: What Would Guan Yin Do (online Buddhist study group)

“What Would Guan Yin Do"? is a small group discussion of Buddhist principles and their applications to contemporary life.

Hosted by Georgia Buddhist Summer Camp and Emory Buddhist Club, this weekly virtual session is led by Bhikkhu (monk) Jin He from Berkeley Buddhist Monastery (a branch of Dharma Realm Buddhist Association) in California. We welcome you to join any and every Friday to discuss ways of interpreting the Dharma with a modern & relevant perspective, as we identify principles from culture, tradition and popular opinion. We will be using the Universal Door Chapter of the Lotus Sutra to see how the Dharma plays a role in our daily lives.
Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.

Every Friday at 8pm Eastern time via Zoom

NOTE: As the course has already started for Fall 2021, please register in advance. You are still welcome to join any week for our contemporary Buddhism study group, but we will catch you up to our format and what we've covered so far.
