In the more than 2500 years since Shakyamuni Buddha began teaching throughout northern India, his philosophy and the practices it spawned have traveled all over the world, most recently reaching Europe and the Americas. While many forms of Buddhism have developed over the millennia, the fundamental teachings and practices -- such as the Four Truths of the Noble Ones, expanding loving-kindness and compassion, and mind training -- remain the same. These will be the main topics of the course. Questions will be especially welcomed, and the class will be as interactive as possible.

Judith Amtzis, lived and worked for many years in Nepal and India, where she had the good fortune to study with several of the most highly regarded and influential Buddhist teachers of the 20th century. She taught at the Cornell Nepal Study Program and the Himalayan Buddhist Meditation Institute, both located in Kathmandu, Nepal. She has translated and edited many books and teachings on Buddhist topics.
