Before each lecture, we’ll have some “homework” assignments.
For this module, please read Chapter 1 from Buddhist Life, Buddhist Path – Bhikkhu Cintita
to learn a bit about the Buddha before coming back here to listen to the talks.
- We say that the Buddha “Awakened” and that “Nirvana” is the goal of the Buddhist practice, but what does that even mean? What is “Enlightenment” anyway?
- What makes someone a “good friend?” And why is good friendship “the whole of the holy life?”
