Introduction to Buddhism:
A Global History of Buddhist Traditions, Beliefs, and Practices
In this five-week online course we will survey all three branches of Buddhism: early Buddhism, Mahayana, and Vajrayana, with an emphasis on key people in Buddhist history, and what Buddhist art can teach us about expression of the Path.
Each week, lectures and article links will be sent to you, offering an opportunity to dive deeper into the recommended readings for the five main areas presented in the course (see curriculum below).
Join Ayya Dhammadīpā, hosted by San Francisco Zen Center, for this whirlwind tour of the Buddhist world.
