I love to read and study about various schools of Buddhism and realized that there is no meetup in Dubai where people meet to learn/study/discuss the teaching of Buddhist Philosophy. I am not an expert, just a student, looking to form a small group to explore the world of Buddhism, not just limited to Mahayana School of thought (Tibetan Buddhism). I also aim to make this multi-disciplinary - infuse the learnings from evolution theory, psychology, physics and history - combining the learnings from the field of science and new thought streams from likes of Yuval Harari.
5 years back I quit my job to travel the world for over 1 year soul-searching. I am now a big fan of Dalai Lama and attended his teachings in Rotterdam (Netherlands) last year. I have visited Lhasa (Tibet), Bodhgaya (where Buddha was born) and Mcleodganj (current home of Dalai Lama) apart from various Buddhist temples in Nepal, China, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia and India. I have several resources which I can share for beginners.
The aim is to meet up for Friday/Saturday breakfast/brunches and chose a topic to discussion.
