NTUBS Dharma Class X: "The Buddha"

The historical Buddha is far more fascinating than the one told by Buddhist myth makers. He was born into the lap of luxury, was prepared all his life for leadership of his tribe, had a beautiful young family, but gave everything up for a spiritual path fraught with uncertainties and difficulties. He succeeded against all odds and founded a method of practice that bring peace and happiness for any sincere practitioner everywhere and for all time. 

Our last Dharma Class this year will cover who was the Buddha: his life and his achievements. Through this class, we will gain new insights about the journey Buddha had gone through, and hopefully be able to apply the lesson learnt in our daily life.

Besides, there will also be a Dharma Quiz before the class starts!
