International Buddhist Academy is an online community, dedicated to people who seek to study Buddhism. This website provides an educational environment in which people can learn Buddhism from basics to advanced.
While our activities are diverse and constantly expanding, we currently offer online lectures, lectures at local offices, publication on Buddhism, as well as special training sessions for students aspiring to pass on Buddhism to others in their community.
Pure Land School
The word, 'Buddhism,' seems to conjure up the image of Zen meditation or some type of full-fledged abstinence in people's
mind. Notwithstanding such
popular image of Buddhism, Pure Land School of Buddhism shines light on the path through which people can attain true happiness when they put the teachings into practice.
Why do people hold a funeral and/or other types of Buddhist ceremonies when someone dies? Shakyamuni Buddha taught us that Buddhism is not teachings for the dead but for the living. Through funeral ceremonies, we hope to apply ourselves to listening to Buddhism and encourage other attendees to do the same.
Today, many people engage in meditation, and some of them go to temples. What did
Shakyamuni Buddha say
about meditation? What is true meditation expounded in the Meditation Sutra?
