法光法師/教授「金剛佛法」公開講座及佛誕慶典 Vesak 2018

法光法師/教授「金剛佛法」公開講座

《金剛經》梵文Vajracchedikā Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra,玄奘法師譯作《能斷金剛般若波羅蜜多經》,為漢系佛教乃至整個東亞佛教傳統中最具影響力的佛教聖典之一。此經闡明大乘佛法中空性思想。然從總體內容而言,此空之義理之闡述是透過整體佛法中之「無我」說。從這觀點,《金剛經》的教義可統一初期佛法及大乘佛法共通之核心思想,可說是佛法之精髓,是金剛不可壞之佛法。

法光法師曾為香港大學旭日基金明德教授席(佛學研究), 2015 年獲欽哲基金會頒發終身成就獎。法光法師現為香港佛法中心主席 及光明精舍住持丶中國人民大學哲學院講座教授。

Introducing Buddhist Sanskrit (24 February - 19 May 2018)

This introductory course is meant for the ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS. Students will be introduced to the Sanskrit Devanagari alphabets and basic Sanskrit grammar required for reading simple Buddhist passages. The focus of this course will be to familiarize students with the basic Buddhist terminologies and simple sentences in the Buddhist Sanskrit Sūtras. At the end of the course, students are expected to be able to read simple Sanskrit passages. This course serves as a good preparation for the Reading Buddhist Sanskrit Texts I & II (ME 68) in the Master of Arts in Buddhist Studies programme.
