In Reply to: Distance Learning course on Buddhism--registration now open posted by Jonah Winters on April 24, 1999 at 21:00:19:
We have postponed the Buddhism distance-learning course by one month. It will now run from June 1 to July 31, and registrations will be accepted through June 15. Please visit the website, http://www.usbnc.org/wilmette , for more information or to apply to the course.
Regarding this course, Dr. Robert Stockman noted that:

from the others, and most different from the Baha'i Faith as well. Most
Buddhist scholars regard it as non-theistic, i.e., a religion without God.
Obviosly it follows that it would be a religion without revelation as well,
and therefore without a concept of Manifestation. Reconciling such a
tradition with the Baha'i Faith is, needless to say, quite a challenge! We
hope you will join us in exploring ways the two traditions can be brought
