About this program
Discovering Buddhism  is a basic Buddhism course conducted by The Buddhist Library for beginners who have no knowledge of Buddhism as well as non-practitioners. Through a series of talks delivered by experienced monastic and lay teachers, you will learn fundamental knowledge about Buddhism.

What you will learn

Fundamental knowledge of Buddhism.

How the course is taught

The course will be a series of talks delivered by experienced Sangha and lay teachers.
The topics are carefully curated hence participants are strongly encouraged to attend all the weekly sessions to keep up with the course.

Think not lightly of good, saying,
“It will not come to me.”

Drop by drop is the water pot filled.

Likewise, the wise one,
gathering it little by little,
fills oneself with good.
