On October 21, 2015, teachers and students from Philosophy Class at Wilbur Wright College went to study Buddhist philosophy at the Meditation Center of Chicago (M.C.C.). The objective of studying was to connect with the topic that they have been learning and for them to be able to compare different religions in eastern and western cultures for their Comparative Religion course in the topic of “”Compare Epicurus and the Buddhists on the issue of desire and the goal of life”.
The teaching monk described the highlights of Buddhism; the four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path and Right Mindfulness & Right Concentration which explained the paths to develop our mind until reaching to the highest goal in life. The lecture was well participated by 19 teachers and students. Later, everyone meditated together and had a Q&A session on meditation and Buddhist teachings. Many Participants were very impressed by their good inner experiences.
