A Survey of Buddhist Ethics

RYI is pleased to announce a seminar on Buddhist Ethics by Dr. Stephen Jenkins (Humboldt University).

The course will explore the Buddhist ethics of compassion from a variety of perspectives and in terms of some basic ethical categories. While addressing definitions and philosophical underpinnings of loving kindness and compassion the seminar will also consider historical and hermeneutical issues in the interpretation of compassion in abhidharmic, Mahāyānist, and tantric modes of Buddhist thought.

Dates: Nov. 2 – Dec. 4, 2009.

Time: Tuesday and Friday, 1.00 - 2.30 pm

The seminar is open to the public. However, preregistration at the RYI offices is required.
