Online Dharma Talk: Life of the Buddha

This image-based talk on the Buddha’s life cites works from museum collections around the world and presents them in chronological order according to the Buddha’s life. Partially legendary and partially factual, these narratives in art help practitioners understand the Buddha’s hagiography as well as basic tenets of his teaching.

We are looking forward to have a fun and practical Dharma talk session with you, as follows:
