| July 16, 2018 | 0 Comments

We will look at the three major schools of Buddhism, in the sort of contemporary context YouTubers would be likely to encounter them. We’ll highlight some of the similarities and differences in their styles of belief and practice. This is intended only as a very rough introduction though since there is WAY too much to deal with in a short video. Please put your own experiences down below, or over on the YouTube channel!
