Introducing Buddhism


About 2600 years ago the Buddha discovered the origin of unhappiness and a way to avoid it. In this course we will look at His enlightenment, the path He took to achieve it, His teachings, some developments in the religion and some of the forms of Buddhism that have arrived in the west. We will consider if the Buddha's teachings are still relevant today and whether they can be incorporated in our busy daily lives.

(No previous knowledge is required.)


During both the course students will be given the opportunity

to try some forms of Buddhist Meditation.

This class will not be run again as a night class unless enough people show an interest to make a viable group of over twelve students. I will leave these notes on the world wide web as a resource for others and may develop the course into web based learning in the future.
