Lecture OR Talk on Buddhism (Beijing)
Is there anyone interested to have some lecture on Buddhism culture? I have found 2 interesting lecture (in english) about it by China Culture Center.
Unfortunately they do not have a regular class, they will arrange private class upon request. Please send me a private message if you are interested. More people, less fee!!
*Talk: Understanding Buddhism & Social Healing*
To understand Buddhism and how it relates to society, you need to understand its core values, principles of action and its interface with social roles. These aspects of Buddhism can inspire modern life.
Buddhist layman will take us inside the life of the Buddha and outline how he used his understanding of human nature and the universe to bring us lessons that can be practiced in our daily lives. These lessons have the power to help us maintain a better balance with others, and contribute to a more tranquil society.
This session covers:
True stories of Buddha with his family and disciples
The Eight Keys of a successful life
The Four Principles of keeping balance with others
Six oars of a boat of harmonious family
*Lecture: Three religions of Daoism, Confucianism and Buddhism*
This lecture gives you an good opportunity to learn and get a deeper understanding of the three major values and religions in one lecture.
All Chinese scholars generally agree on that China and Chinese thoughts have been shaped by the three religions of Daoism, Confucianism and Buddhism (although Confucianism is argued not being a religion but one thought).
Paul Wang will give a lecture on the three religions, their histories, beliefs and influences on Chinese culture and ideology with powerpoint show.
