Dharma study is an important complement to Dharma practice.  Here we have compiled some resources to help you explore and engage with Buddhist teachings and practice.

  • Basics of Buddhism – Originally compiled for the Dharma Study Program, this page lists some key Buddhist concepts and subjects for reflection, including the refuges and precepts and the four noble truths.
  • Reading List – Recommended books on practice, Dharma study, and the life of the Buddha.
  • Insight Meditation Blog – Inspiration, commentaries, and Dharma readings from our community.
