One of the world’s major missionary religions, Buddhism began in India 2,500 years ago. It has been diffused in different forms across Asia and rooted itself in local contexts of Sri Lanka, Tibet, Thailand, Burma, China, and Japan. This course tries to examine the socio-historical context of Buddhism and the theoretical basis of its fundamental beliefs, key doctrines, and religious life that shaped its unique and characteristic identity.
