The English Dharma Group at Jade Buddha Temple invites you to its annual Introduction to Buddhism class, facilitated by Bhikkhu Cintita, a Western American monk with the Sitagu Buddha Vihara Temple in Austin.
The comprehensive course is offered free of charge as two weekend classes - Buddhist Life in March (focusing on values, ethics and community) and Buddhist Path in May (focusing on the Buddha's basic teaching, including meditation).
The two classes complement each other but each weekend can be taken as a class in itself.
The class is intended for new Buddhists, for those just exploring, for adherents of other faiths who would like to know how Buddhist wisdom can supplement or enhance their experience of their root faith, or for students of comparative religion.
You can register via our website, or email email@example.com. Please indicate if you like to attend both or one of the classes. [Organizer's description]
