This course is designed for Buddhists in Hong Kong who may know every Chinese character in a text yet find it difficult to comprehend because of its classical grammar and terminology and have to resort to an English translation of the Chinese Buddhist canon. It aims to teach Buddhist Chinese syntax, grammar, terms and the corresponding Sanskrit expressions so that students can gain a better understanding of Buddhist canonical texts in Classical Chinese.
The Ullambana Ceremony will be conducted at Āloka Vihāha, Kowloon, on 4 September 2016 from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm.
