Abstract:

Join historian Bettany Hughes as she explores the different beliefs and practices that form the core of the Buddhist philosophy and investigates how Buddhism started and where it travelled to, through visits to seven of the most spectacular monuments built by Buddhists across the globe. Her journey begins at the Mahabodhi Temple in India, where Buddhism was born. At Nepal's Boudhanath Stupa, she looks deeper into the concept of dharma, the teaching of Buddha, and at the Temple of the Tooth in Sri Lanka, Bettany explores karma. At Wat Pho Temple in Thailand, Hughes explores samsara, before travelling to Angkor Wat in Cambodia to learn more about the practice of meditation. In Hong Kong, Hughes visits the Giant Buddha and looks more closely at Zen, before arriving at the final wonder, the Hsi Lai Temple in Los Angeles, to discover more about the ultimate goal for all Buddhists--nirvana.
