The Ewam Buddhist Institute and the Missoula Public Library bring the Buddhist History Series to Montana this winter. The Buddhist History Series this January and February will cover the origins, doctrines, theory, practice and spread of the three vehicles of Buddhism in ancient and medieval India. We will examine the discourses of the Buddha, visit the places he taught and get to know the original disciples. We will then continue and study the Indian masters who created some of the greatest philosophical systems of the ancient world based on the Buddhas words and meditative realization. One will learn about the vast Buddhist Universities like Nalanda and their curriculum in addition to the yogic tradition. We will summarize many of the major themes of Indian Buddhist history, thought and practice from the beginning of Buddhism until the eleventh century. Taught by our resident translator Thubten Shastri and James Curran.
