7:00-7:30PM (PT)

Did you know that the famous Laughing Buddha is actually not a Buddha at all or that the meditative Buddha is only one type among a multitude? This digital lecture series will serve as an introduction not only to the categories of Buddhist deity, but to the iconography that will allow laypeople to identify specific figures.
There are four lectures in this series; Lecture 1 (July 16) will be about Celestial Beings, Lecture 2 (July 30) Wisdom Kings, Lecture 3 (August 13) Bodhisattvas, and Lecture 4 (August 27) Buddhas.
