Course description

Studying the Buddhism Diploma Course, you will learn about the history of Buddha and his personal journey to Enlightenment. You will see that he took his own difficult journey to emotional freedom of mind, body and spirit and that through his own experiences he formed a philosophy, which was his personal pathway to freedom or Nirvana.

There are many scriptures or canons, with long descriptions of Buddhas teachings; over the centuries, these have been distilled down to simple guiding philosophies or disciplines, which are commonly practised in all Buddhist monastic communities. While these disciplines can seem slightly daunting to learn, it is worth taking the time to study his main teachings of The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Pathway, both of which are covered in the Buddhism Diploma Course, because they form the basis of his teachings in a much more simplified fashion.

Along with these teachings, youll learn about the three aspects of Buddhism, known as The Three Jewels, the Three Universal Truths, the core beliefs of Buddhists, and the power of meditation and mindfulness. Youll also study two of Buddhisms figureheads – the Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh – and gain an understanding of their roles.

As this course provides an introduction to Buddhism, we have kept the content as simple as possible to form the basis of what you can then use as a foundation to further research and learning, should you choose to. We have included several practical exercises so that you can experience the teachings personally and see the impact they have on your daily life.
