Buddha and His Theory of Dhamma

 

    A short course especially focus on the theory of "Dhamma and

abhidhamma"

 

While Dhamma is one of the three refuges and treated as a fundamental emblem of Buddhism, Abhidhamma takes a further step in considering ‘everything as dhamma’. Does it mean to refuge everything? If the world is the dhamma, should we refuge the world? What type of dhamma should we refuge?

 

Buddha offers a ‘theory’ for overcoming of suffering. This is also known as four noble truths. Given that all human beings end up with suffering, some says - Buddhism is mere a psychological treaty and other says Buddhism is a ‘science’ but none of these notions consider as a religion. We will examine these thoughts from the standpoint of Dhamma and Abhidhamma theory. You will learn this from the traditional belief.

 

This includes:

Definition of dhamma and abhidhamma

Dhamma and Abhidhamma theory relating to the human nature

Dhamma and Abhidhamma theory relating to the physical and metaphysical existence
