(1 credit)  This course will use the foundational knowledge of the graduated path to enlightenment as a basis from which to explore practical ways in which we can act in service in our world. The underlying assumptions of this course is the reality that the number of people who spend their lives engaged in violence and dishonesty is tiny compared to the vast majority who wish others well, and the concept put forth by Buddhist leaders that our survival has depended and will continue to depend on our basic goodness. This course will use excerpted readings, discussion, music, and multimedia to supplement the primary text Ethics for the New Millennium, a presentation of an ethical system that is based on universal rather than religious principles.
