Week 4 of the :
COURSE IN THAI BUDDHISM
This week we continue our exploration of Buddhism, focusing on key stories. The cosmology of Buddhism says there is only one ultimate goal; but that anyone can attain to it if they practice in the right way.
This way is encapsulated in the Four Noble Truths, which remains the cornerstone of all Buddhist traditions. The opening of this teaching is a key event int he Buddha’s own story, and is called the ‘Setting Forth the Wheel of Dharma’. This is the point where the narrative changes from a personal story of Siddhartha Gotoma, and on to the cosmic significance of a Buddha.

There is a one-time course fee of 200 baht, which covers all remaining weeks. Each week deals with a different topic in the Buddhist story (topics all listed on the main announcement).
The course is academic in approach, rather than religious. We want to understand the thinking and philosophy behind both Buddhism and Thai culture, which are of course, intimately linked.
We’ll stick to the schedule precisely.
