Buddhist Class Objectives

The English Buddhist classes teach core ideas of Buddhism. They are suitable for learners of multicultural and religious backgrounds. The classes cover Buddhist teachings, meditation and tea ceremony aim to develop participants’ inner peace, wisdom and positive attitude toward life.

The Adult’s Buddhist classes introduce the core Buddhist teachings, providing knowledge and insight on how to apply Buddhist ideas to daily life. Buddhism is not solely a religion, but also a method of training the mind to improve our ability to handle life challenges, overcome obstacles and find happiness all beings deserve.

The founder of Fo Guang Shan, Venerable Master Hsing Yun, established the following four guiding principles for all members of the temple; both Monastics and lay devotees:

“Offer others confidence;
Offer others happiness;
Offer others hope;
Offer others convenience”

The class objectives focus on nurturing potential talents of students, serving the community with compassion, practicing Buddhism to purify one’s mind and building the future with a bold spirit of vitality. We hope to see you soon in one of our classes.
