Buddhism in a Nutshell Beginning August 3!

At Kurukulla Center we offer a series of courses that cover the basics of Buddhism and meditation as well as key concepts and practices that you will encounter here at our center.

The first course in this series, Buddhism in a Nutshell will begin on Monday, August 3 at 7:00pm. Buddhism in a Nutshell is an introductory course on Buddhism for beginners. It presents basic Buddhist philosophy and principles within the Tibetan Mahayana context, and provides simple meditation instruction. The series is also suitable for those who have done some independent reading on Buddhism and are interested in a more systematic study.

The course is presented over a series of five Mondays from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. You are encouraged to attend all sessions but it is not needed.

All are welcome!!

No registration is required.
