Buddhism academy to start March 8th
The Buddhism Academy which is divided into three courses about Buddhism starts March 8th at Jeonggakwon. The three courses are called Gae-ron, Bon-gwa, Jeong-gak. Lee Min-ki, a staff member of Jeonggakwon said the “Buddhism Academy opens to train ordinary people interested in Buddhism or Buddhists.”
Each course is set according to the participants’s needs. For example it provides special program to ordinary people who would like to learn more about Buddhism, Buddhists, and graduates in Buddhism.
Gae-ron is a basic course that includes basic information about Buddhism or the Buddha. It is recommended that Buddhists who are interested in mission work should take the Bon-gwa course. They will learn history, religious studies, and the clan rules of Buddhism. Upon taking the course, they will be able to submit applications for missionary work. Because Jeong-gak is a course for graduates in Buddhism, it will place a greater emphasis on gaining a deeper understanding of Buddhism.
Gae-ron is four-month course while Bon-gwa and Jeong-gak are six-month courses. If the Buddhism Academy is successful, then Jeonggakwon will accept a second round of participants next semester.
