Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions

January 9 @ 5:00 pm - March 13 @ 5:00 pm PST

Ven. Chodron with the His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Wisdom Publications offers a new online course

featuring Ven. Thubten Chodron teaching

Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions,

co-written with His Holiness the Dalai Lama


In Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Venerable Thubten Chodron give a thorough overview  of Buddhism’s core practices and tenets. Respectfully mapping out the paths of the two major Buddhist movements—the Sanskrit traditions of Tibet and East Asia and the Pāli traditions of Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia—they examine the four noble truths, the practice of meditation, the cultivation of love, the meaning of nirvāṇa, and more.

From their presentation, we come to see the common roots of different Buddhist traditions and where they differ.

Ven. Chodron gave oral teachings on this book in 2015 and 2016. Wisdom Academy has edited this course—which is not available anywhere else—to create an in-depth study program that includes:
