Introduction to Buddhism

These days, many people are developing an interest in Buddhism and meditation, in part because of its practical approach to the problems we experience in our daily lives, and also because Buddhism is an open, flexible faith that may be practiced by anyone, regardless of their ethnicity or religious background.

Buddhism teaches us to take responsibility for ourselves, our actions, and the consequences of our actions.

Through meditation we can follow the same path of inner transformation that Buddha followed and eventually attain a lasting inner peace and real power to benefit other living beings.

In this meditation series, we will explore basic Buddhist view, intention, and action, and how to follow the Buddhist way of life in the modern world. This is a perfect series for anyone with an interest in Buddhism and meditation.
