Excursion to Yeunten Ling institute 2008
Buddhism is a fertile ground for comparative studies with different beliefs, philosophy, science and history. In terms of doctrine, Dependent Origination is, according to some, Buddhism's primary contribution to metaphysics.
Also, Buddhist emphasis on the Middle Way and the Four Noble Truths not only provides a unique guideline for ethics but it has also allowed Buddhism to peacefully coexist with various local beliefs, in adopted countries for most of its history.
According to analysis, Buddhism is the fourth-largest religion in the world behind Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism and the monks' orders are among the oldest organizations on earth.
We would like to invite UM Students and other interested parties to participate in a day excursion to Huy (Belgium). Visit the beautiful Tibetan Buddhism institute situated in and around an old castle, surrounded by beautiful parks. The program is held in English.
