RST 205 - Buddhist Wisdom


Grounded in the Second Vatican Council’s “Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religion,” the course will introduce the heart of the Buddhist tradition by reflecting on the experience, life and teachings of Siddhartha Gotama, The Buddha.  Examining the religious and cultural context within which he lived and taught, the course will explore the insight and wisdom of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. Attention will be given to the development of Mahayana Buddhism though a consideration of primary texts from within that tradition.
