Instruction In Dhamma
 
The Vihara conducts public lectures to impart basic knowledge of the Buddha's teaching as embodied in the Tripitaka texts. These texts are widely referred to as the Pali Canon because they are in Pali, an ancient Indian language that was spoken by Buddha. Weekly evening classes are held at the Vihara for study and discussion of the fundamentals of theory and practice of Theravada Buddhism.

These classes are open to those who seek either an overview or an intimate knowledge of Buddhism. Current schedules are available at Vihara. The Vihara holds Dhamma school (Sunday School) for children on Sundays from 2:30am to 5:00 pm. A basic knowledge of Budddhism for children is taught in English. Parents are welcome to bring children of any age.
