HYEF Dharma Talk Series

Humanistic Buddhism is the integration of our spiritual practice into all aspects of our daily lives.

The Buddha’s teachings are as relevant in the modern world today as they were 2500 years ago. The Hsing Yun Education Foundation believes that everyone can benefit from this time-tested wisdom regardless of their backgrounds.
