The Buddha's Basic Teachings - A Six Week Course

The Buddha's Basic Teachings - A six-part class series taught by Matthew Grad

Monday evenings, March 23rd through April 27th

7:00 to 9:00pm, PFoD Center

This six-part course offers a solid introduction to the Buddha's core teachings, which date back 2600 years. These teachings are very practical and down to earth, yet surprisingly radical. As a general framework, we’ll use the Buddha's Four Noble Truths, which contain all his other essential teachings as well. This is not just a lecture series, but an opportunity to investigate these remarkable teachings together.
