Watch & Learn: “7 Wonders of the Buddhist World” (online)
October 30, 2021 @ 3:45 am - 6:00 pm CDT
It’s the 5th Saturday — our special event week!
On October 30th, we will do a short sitting, and then watch a documentary TV special: “Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World” together.
Presented by historian Bettany Hughes, “Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World” visits seven of the most famous ancient and modern Buddhist locations in the world, including Bodh Gaya in India, the Bodanath Stupa in Nepal, the Temple of The Tooth in Sri Lanka, Wat Pho Temple in Thailand, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the Giant Buddha in Hong Kong, and the Hsi Lai Temple in Los Angeles, California, in the United States. At each location, Hughes meets with Buddhists who explain the different concepts that form the core of Buddhist belief, giving insight into the long and rich history of Buddhism. EVENT SCHEDULE:
