Our Discovering Buddhism program offers entry-level classes that provide an
over-view of the Buddhist teachings. These classes are designed for newcomers
and experienced students wanting an opportunity to integrate study and meditation.
They also provide an excellent foundation for those wishing to undertake more
advanced study in the Basic Program.
The entire Discovering Buddhism program covers 14 different subject areas.
A series on a particular subject meets once a week for three to six weeks. Some
of these classes are held at an off-site location in Cambridge and others at
our center in Medford.
The fourteen subject areas are:
- Mind and Its Potential
- How to Meditate
- Presenting the Path
- The Spiritual Teacher
- Death and Rebirth
- All About Karma
- Refuge in the Three Jewels
- Establishing a Daily Practice
- Samsara and Nirvana
- How to Develop Bodhicitta
- Transforming Problems
- Wisdom of Emptiness
- Introduction to Tantra
- Special Integration Experiences
Ven Tsunma-la teaches
most of our Discovering Buddhism classes. See our
calendar for dates and times. Discovering Buddhism
classes are marked on the calendar as such.
