Description: Buddhism is a performing art engaging both mind and body. Our course investigates Buddhist and other literature, epistemology and rituals with an eye to how they speak to contemplative practice. Contemplative practice itself, in class and out, supplements our exploration of the interplay between traditional Asian and contemporary Western perspectives. Recommended prerequisite(s): One course in Buddhism. Credit cannot be earned for RELI 333 and RELI 573. Repeatable for Credit.
