2,500 years after the passing of Buddha, his message continues to resonate. This introductory course explains the essential principles of the Buddhist way of life and what it means to be a Buddhist. Kelsang Chogdrub will give a clear and profound insights into the following topics: “Who was Buddha?”, “Past and future lives”, “What does karma mean?” and “The path to enlightenment”. These explanations serve as tools for developing qualities such as inner peace, love, and patience. Everyone is welcome – regardless of previous knowledge or religion.
