Buddha’s Basic Teachings

Buddha’s Basic Teachings

On Monday nights for six weeks, this course offers a solid introduction to the Buddha’s core teachings, which date back over 2500 years.

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 explore these remarkable teachings together.

There’s no registration, just show up. And there’s no fee either, although any donations to PFoD would be gratefully received. (All our programs are offered freely, through the generosity of folks in the PFoD community and others.)

Taught by Matthew Grad both in person at the Portland Dhamma Center, or join via Zoom.


We hope you enjoy this four-minute video describing a bit of what we offer and what it’s like to first walk into our building.
